What Is Bad Faith When It Comes to Insurance Companies?

When in a dispute with your insurance carrier regarding a coverage determination, you may hear or see the term "bad faith" tossed around.

Bad faith is typically raised where an insurance company receives a property damage claim and fails to settle the claim where they could and should have, or where the insurance company issues a payment but fails to accompany the payment with a statement explaining the coverage in which the payments are issued under.

Some signs an insurance company is acting in bad faith that you should be aware of include failing to adequately communicate or respond to your inquiries or failing to adequately investigate the claim.

If you believe your insurance company is acting in bad faith, contact our office today for a consultation.

Client Reviews
"I was told by my insurance adjuster that Rina was a fabulous attorney who will fight hard for her clients and he was right. She did an outstanding job communicating with me throughout a stressful negotiation process and I was so happy with the settlement she got for me. Highly recommend the Law Offices of Rina Feld!” Mark L.
I had water damage to the inside of my home and homeowners insurance automatically rejected my claim. After giving up fighting them on my own i contacted Rina and she petsonally discussed options and explained the procedure. After about 4 months my claim was resolved , Rina worked pro bono so did not cost me a penny. I now have new ceilings ! Thoroughly recommended. Christopher D.
Rina is very efficient. She always kept me updated and worked very quickly. She took the time to explain everything thoroughly and made sure that I understood, although my primary language is Spanish. Mariel C.
