Miami Bad Faith Insurance Lawyer Handles All Types of Insurance Disputes
Insurance companies offer insurance policies to protect policyholders from natural and other disasters that can be emotionally and financially devastating. Under your insurance policy, and insurance carrier is required to act in "good faith" toward you - the insured. When an insurance company fails to pay out a claim for no reason except to save money, it is said to be acting in "bad faith." Bad faith cases involve claims by an insured against his or her own insurance company for failing to pay a valid claim. Your insurance carrier has a duty to treat you fairly when assessing the validity of your claim. In addition, your insurance company has a duty to settle claims against you if it can do so within the coverage limit. If you have been subjected to a high judgment against you because your insurance company refused to settle, you are entitled to damages under the law.
Because insurance companies have an advantage over its insured when creating insurance contracts, the law interprets insurance contracts in favor of the insured when there is any ambiguity as to the plain meaning of the contract. Your insurance company is required to promptly and thoroughly investigate your claim and provide a written explanation of why your claim was denied.
