BAD FAITH INSURANCE

The insurance company has also implicitly agreed that it owes a duty of good faith and fair dealing to their customers. A bad faith insurance claim arises when there is a valid claim with the insurance company, but the insurance refuses to pay or defend the claim in bad faith. This area of law can sometimes be confusing. When someone thinks that their insurance company is not dealing with them fairly, it is important to contact a bad faith insurance lawyer who can help someone understand the process, assist them in filing a bad faith claim against the insurance company, and see it through to trial.
