Purchasing insurance is a way to protect yourself in the event of a catastrophic accident or health crisis. Insurance is essentially an investment which you trust will pay off when you truly need it, with the insurance company paying claims that you make. When your insurer doesn’t uphold their end of the bargain and fails to pay you what you’re owed on a claim, you may feel betrayed and frustrated that this investment has failed to pay off.

What constitutes bad faith?
California law requires all insurance companies to adhere to the principle of good faith and fair dealing. What this means is that insurers must honor valid contracts and pay claims that are covered under the consumer’s policy. Like any business, insurance carriers profit by holding onto more money than they spend. Unfortunately, this can result in insurers committing fraud to prevent paying claims. Insurance carriers may use flimsy excuses not to pay claims or to deny coverage, knowing that most customers won’t fight back. When an insurance company refuses to pay out a claim that should be covered under the policy, or otherwise fails to uphold the policy purchased by the customer, the insurer is considered to be acting in bad faith.
Bad faith by an insurer can come in many forms, such as:
- Unjustified denial of claims
- Failure to investigate claims completely
- Delay in responding to or paying claims
- Misrepresentation of the terms of a customer’s policy or value of a claim
- Failure to defend or indemnify
