Insurance Companies Working in Bad Faith

Ideally, the insurance company for the at-fault party that caused an injury should be working in good faith to come to a fast resolution. However, there are some instances where insurance companies intentionally try to avoid liability for a claim. This can include bad faith activities like failing to investigate a claim, causing delays, providing misleading information, denying to pay a valid claim, and more. If the at-fault party’s insurance is working in bad faith, you may be entitled to filing an additional claim against that insurance company.


Insurance or Other Parties Allege That You Caused the Accident

Some insurance companies may try to reduce the amount of compensation that you are entitled to from an injury by claiming that your actions contributed to the injury in question. For example, an insurance company may assert that because you were looking at your phone while crossing the street, your injury was at least partially your fault. In these instances, the insurance company is trying to reduce the amount they need to pay out in compensation.

You need legal representation in this case.
