When insurance companies act in bad faith, they not only violate the contracts that policyholders have with them, but they also violate the public’s trust. Acts of insurance bad faith can come in various forms, some of which may include:
- Denials of legitimate claims against active policies
- Post-claims underwriting (the cancelation of an insurance policy when a claim is made against it because an insurer is claiming that the original paperwork misrepresented the insured individual’s condition or property)
- Significantly undercutting the amount of a payment for an insurance claim
- Significantly delaying payment on a legitimate claim (as the insurance company is obligated to address and payout on claims in a timely manner).
