Denver Bad Faith Insurance Attorney
Denver Injury Attorneys: Decades of Collective Experience
We all purchase insurance coverage to protect us from unfortunate events
in the future. When something unexpected happens (such as a
motor vehicle accident or a leak in your home that causes severe property damage), we expect
the insurance company to compensate us for all of the “covered losses”
as promised under the policy we paid for. Regrettably, insurance companies
do not always act in their policyholders’ best interests. Bad faith
insurance claims are designed to help consumers hold insurance companies
accountable for their deceitful and dishonest practices.
If you answered “yes” to any of the following,
call us today:
- Has your insurance company delayed payment?
- Has your insurance company denied payment?
- Has your insurance company acted unreasonable in the evaluation of your claim?
Your insurance carrier has a duty to evaluate a victim’s claim in
a timely manner, without unreasonable delay or denial. Even if you are
not the “named insured” on an insurance policy, but someone
who is a “covered insured,” you should still benefit from
the policy’s coverage.
Do I have a valid bad faith insurance claim?
If you bring a claim against your own insurance company, and your company
unreasonably delays or denies the claim, you can pursue a bad faith insurance
case, as well as a breach of contract claim. Consult with our Denver bad
faith insurance lawyers to discuss the merits of your claim.
Some common bad faith insurance practices include:
- Misrepresenting policy coverage to avoid payment
- Refusing payment on a valid claim
- Delaying payment on a valid claim
- Failing to investigate a claim in a fair manner
- Coercing policyholders to force settlement of a claim
- Presenting lowball offers
Unsurprisingly, claims brought against the insurance carrier of the person
who caused the injury are often disputed. In fact, it is typical for a
third-party carrier to unreasonably delay or deny a claim.
For example, if a negligent driver of a vehicle rear-ends a person and
injures that person, the offending driver’s insurance carrier may
unreasonably delay or deny a claim. In Colorado, the victim has no recourse
but to sue the negligent driver, and the negligent driver’s insurance
company will have to defend the negligent driver in Court. The injured
victim in this scenario will not be able to bring claims for bad faith
insurance, or what is referred to as “third party bad faith.”
Bad faith insurance is a claim that is brought when the injured victims’
own insurance carrier (or the carrier that must provide benefits to a
“covered insured”) unreasonably delays or denies a victim’s claim.
