What Are Some Examples Of Insurance Bad Faith?

An insurance policy is a contract. In exchange for your premiums, the insurance company promises to pay your valid insurance claims. When the insurance company fails to meet its obligations and act in good faith according to the insurance policy and Florida law, insurance bad faith is said to exist. If insurance bad faith can be proven, Florida law allows the insured to collect damages, attorney fees and costs, and in some cases punitive damages.

Some examples of Insurance Bad Faith conduct include:

  • Insurance company denies your valid claim
  •

  •
