Types of Insurance Disputes
Insurance disputes are all-too-common across the state of Florida. Although the reasons you filed your claim may be perfectly valid and justifiable, the potential exists that an insurance company can deny your claim, delay your claim or fight to pay you as little compensation as possible. If delaying a claim could make a policyholder desperate enough to settle for less, some insurance companies will do it.
Common insurance disputes involve the following types of insurance policies:
- Homeowners insurance
- Life insurance
- Health insurance
- Bad faith insurance
- Uninsured/underinsured drivers
- Disability insurance
- Professional liability coverage
- Hurricane damage
- Fire damage
Bad Faith Insurance Lawyers Who Will Fight for You
When you've been in an accident, you reasonably expect your insurance company to respond and pay the benefits outlined in your policy. Your insurance company is obligated to handle your claim ethically and with a reasonable degree of efficiency. When an insurance company fails to do so, it is acting in "bad faith." When this happens, the company has an obligation to pay the amount owed under the contract as well as other damages it may have caused while acting in bad faith, including emotional damages that the policyholder has suffered.
The following are examples of how an insurance company might act in bad faith to its policyholders:
- An unreasonably low offer to compensate for damages
- Denial of a claim without reason
- Delay of a claim without reason
- Ambiguous wording in the policy
- Intentional fraud
- Failure to investigate claim
- Failure to act within a reasonable time
