- Providing inadequate explanation of claim denial
- Not promptly and thoroughly investigating a claim
- Refusing to pay a justified claim with clear liability
- Illegally canceling your policy
- Misrepresenting the policy
- Failing to decide on a claim in a reasonable timeframe
- Not defending you in a liability suit covered by your insurance policy

The Two Types of Bad Faith Insurance Lawsuits
Breach of Contract
Insurance agreements are contracts. You pay your hard-earned money for the assurance that your insurer will cover and defend you when necessary. When an insurance company refuses to honor its contract, this is known as a breach. Our attorneys can file a lawsuit on your behalf with the goal of forcing the insurance company to fulfill the terms of the contract and pay you the proper type of damages.
A tort is a wrongful act that causes someone harm. In some bad faith cases, an insurance company's actions can be so egregious that tort law is invoked. If you are suffering due to actions that rise to the level of a tort claim, you may be able to receive punitive damages in addition to the standard compensatory damages available in breach of contract cases. The value of punitive damages can be even greater than the insurance policy itself.
