Bad Faith / Unfair Insurance Practice Claims
Acts of bad faith by insurance companies provide a basis for individual or business policyholders to sue for breach of contract and for breach of the implied covenant of good faith and fair dealing. There are several situations in which insurance bad faith may occur. Property damages claims, claims for medical bills, and disability claims all provide opportunities for insurance companies to act in bad faith. In some instances, emotional distress damages and punitive damages may be awarded in a suit for insurance bad faith.
