Texas Insurance Bad Faith Attorney
It is an unfortunate reality that insurance companies often treat their policyholders in bad faith by denying claims or restricting their coverage, despite the policyholder continually paying premiums on time.
Insurance companies think that they can get away with this practice because they know that the majority of policyholders won’t take the important step of hiring an attorney to help fight for what they truly are owed. They will just continue to give you the runaround.
What Is Bad Faith?
An insurance policy is basically a contract between two parties. The document clearly states in writing what is agreed upon between the two parties. As a policy holder, you agree to pay your premiums, to ensure you are covered. The insurer is legally bound by this contract, just like you are. However, when the insurer fails to carry out their side of the agreement, that is what we call “bad faith”.
Insurance bad faith claims can includes:
Failure to investigate a claim in a proper and reasonable manner
Withholding benefits without just cause
Delaying payment of claims excessively or unreasonably
Denying payment on claims without giving a valid reason – or any reason.
Unjust cancellation of policies
