You know that, in order to remain covered by your home or auto insurance policy, you need to make your insurance policy payments each month. By making these payments and following the terms of your policy, you believe that your insurer will hold up their end of the contract, too. Should something catastrophic happen, you feel confident that your insurer will cover your losses according to the terms of your policy.
When promised coverage doesn’t come
For many Idaho residents who have experienced a serious accident, this promised coverage never comes. Even though these customers have dutifully paid their policy premiums for years, some unscrupulous insurers will make every attempt not to come through on claims they know are valid. Don’t let your right to coverage be denied by these dishonest companies. With the help of the Twin Falls insurance bad faith lawyers at Pedersen & Whitehead, you can fight for the coverage you’re owed, and even seek damages for the insurance company’s bad faith in failing to pay your claim in the first place. Contact Pedersen & Whitehead today for a free evaluation of your Idaho insurer bad faith claim.
What constitutes a claim of insurance bad faith?
When you first purchased your insurance policy, you signed a contract with the insurer which listed obligations for both you and your insurer—namely that, if you made your payments and suffered an accident that fell under the protections of your policy, your insurer would provide compensation as described in your contract.
Idaho companies are all bound to comply with the valid contracts they enter with their customers. If a customer files a valid claim with their insurance company, and the company fails to pay the claim, they could be liable for breaching the insurance policy contract, as well as the tort of bad faith. The customer will need to show that the insurance carrier intentionally delayed or denied payment on a claim (or refused to provide liability coverage) without good cause. Bad faith claims may also exist if an insurer delayed their determination of coverage for an unreasonable length of time, or was misleading about the terms of the customer’s policy. At Pedersen & Whitehead, our seasoned Idaho insurance bad faith attorneys can help you determine if you have a claim against an insurance company for bad faith.
