Standing Up For Insureds’ Rights
As a responsible policyholder, you pay your insurance premiums on time and in full. It’s only natural for you to expect that your insurance provider will do the same after an accident. Unfortunately, it’s all too common that insurance providers give their policyholders the run-around rather than the payout that they deserve.

Signs That Your Provider Acted In Bad Faith
Insurance providers are in business to make money, not provide excessive payouts to policyholders. Sometimes, they have grounds to reject a claim. In other situations, the policyholder is entitled to receive a payout to cover medical expenses, property damage bills and other expenses related to an accident.
When insurance providers put profit over policy obligations, they can be sued for acting in bad faith. You may have the standing to take action if your provider:
- Rejects your claim without investigating the accident
- Provides no reason for rejecting your claim
- Offers an unreasonably low payout
- Does not respond to your questions or requests in a timely manner
- Refuses to negotiate after you reject their first offer
