Your Rights Vs. Insurance Companies
Did you know that Pennsylvania Law allows individuals to sue insurance companies for claim denials? They can be sued for claims handling as well. In order to do this, the individual must prove that the insurer’s claim evaluation was less than honest, intelligent, and objective. Another way is for the individual to prove that the insurer acted with contempt.
Insurance Company Bad Faith Examples
There are a number of ways an insurance company can show negligence when handling claims, including:
- Lack of communication through investigation
- Lack of investigation
- Offering settlement amounts that are too low
- Unnecessary delays in processing or handling a claim
- Denial of benefits
Why You Should Have Early Representation
Sometimes bad faith actions are obvious, and sometimes they can be difficult to pick up on. That’s why it’s always helpful to have an attorney involved at the first sign you believe an insurance company is not treating you fairly or handling your claim properly. The attorney can step in and take over communications with the insurance company.
