Did a California insurance agency recently deny your claim? As a recovering accident victim, were you offered less compensation than you believe you’re entitled to receive? Were you expecting your claim to have been resolved a lot sooner? Insurance issues are often complex, and it’s important to determine whether the challenges you’ve encountered are par for the course or, perhaps, a matter of bad faith insurance?
Bad faith insurance has a negative impact on the lives of victims and families
Insurance providers are obligated to adhere to the regulations and laws that govern their industry. As a policyholder, you can expect your insurance agent to process your claim in a fair and timely manner. If an insurance company unfairly denies your claim or doesn’t offer you the maximum amount of compensation that you’re eligible to receive, the company is said to be acting in bad faith. The good news is that you are not powerless against this type of unjust treatment.
Be well-informed about your policy
There’s a lot of fine print involved in a typical insurance policy contract. If you think your policy covers a particular issue, then later learn that it doesn’t, it’s not only stressful but can wind up causing financial distress, as well. To avoid confusion and prevent unpleasant surprises, it’s always best to thoroughly review the details of your policy ahead of time and to seek clarification of any terms you do not fully understand.
