What is the Insurance Company's Duty?

Insurance policies are intended to protect the purchasers' well-being in the event of disability, catastrophe, or another unexpected circumstance. Unfortunately, this type of "backup" is not always honored by the insurance company, and the insured is instead only paid a portion of what was called for in the claim.

In extreme cases, some providers go so far as to completely deny the claim. Actions of this nature are considered to be in "bad faith," violating the contract that was agreed upon by the insurer and the insured.

Bad faith insurance practices include:

  • Failure to pay valid claims, i.e. disability claims and business insurance claims
  • Failure to settle upon the terms that were agreed upon in the insurance policy
  • Negligence on behalf of the insurance broker or agent

Legal Responsibility of Insurance Companies
