What is Bad Faith Claims Handling?

Examples of Bad Faith Practices
Insurance policies represent a contract between the insured and the insurance company. They stipulate that the company will act in good faith in regard to all covered insurance claims. If the insurance company withholds these benefits for any reason, they are acting in bad faith.
Some of the most common bad faith behaviors include:
- Failing to thoroughly and promptly investigate an insurance claim
- Purposely delaying payment
- Denying benefits which would otherwise be reasonable
- Refusing to address or settle a claim
- Failing to fully compensate the insured for their loss
- Using unrealistic interpretations of insurance policies
