You may be entitled to compensation if your insurance company has denied a claim you made for an injury or if they are negotiating in what is called “bad faith.” Sometimes the compensation can be much higher than the original amount of your claim. Jonathan Saul is a Sacramento attorney with experience aggressively representing clients against insurance companies.
What is “Bad Faith?”
Your insurance company has a duty to deal with you in good faith. That means that when you are trying to negotiate with your insurance company for a settlement, the insurance adjustor must be held to certain standards.
The adjustor cannot make a low offer without providing an explanation as to why the offer is so low. The adjustor cannot lie, engage in fraud, or do anything else that is dishonest and that would prevent you from reaching a fair settlement. Any such activity qualified as “bad faith.” If your insurance adjustor has acted in bad faith, then you may have a claim against the insurance company.
If this situation applies to you, you may be able to sue or reach a settlement with your insurance company. Punitive damages may be available in addition to the settlement for your original injury.
