What Are Bad Faith Insurance Practices?
Living in the Dallas area where hurricanes and tornadoes may hit, not to mention any accident or injury could occur, you need an insurance provider you can count on to treat you fairly when and if you file a claim. In fact, insurance companies are required to act in good faith when dealing with policyholders and claimants. They cannot intentionally try to undervalue or deny claims just to protect their bottom line.
An insurance company acts in bad faith if they do something (or fail to do something), and this violates their duty to fairly uphold policy terms, investigate claims, and render payment.
This may include such practices as:
- Deliberately misinterpreting their own policy language or records
- Unreasonably delaying the investigation or payment of a claim
- Making arbitrary demands of a policyholder or claimant
- Using abusive or coercive tactics to force a low settlement
- Failing to conduct a thorough investigation
- Asking an insured to contribute to a settlement
- Failing to make timely responses to communication or questions from insureds

This could open the door to the recovery of the full value of your claim, plus penalties, attorney fees, related economic losses, and possibly more.

Regardless of the type of claim or the situation you’re dealing with, we can step in and level the playing field.
