About Insurance Companies and the Requirement of “Duty of Good Faith and Fair Dealing”
Insurance Companies Must be Honest with Consumers

This means that the claim should be given the proper consideration and investigation before a decision is made. If a claim is unreasonably denied, an insurance company can be said to be acting in bad faith. If this has happened to you, contact our Riverside insurance bad faith lawyers today.

Insurance Disputes or Bad Faith?
When an insurance company acts in bad faith, it is ignoring several tenets of the duty of good faith and fair dealing, including to:
- Pay benefits due and owing under the policy;
- Timely pay benefits due under the policy;
- Fully pay benefits owed under the policy, particularly that portion of a claim which is not disputed by the insurer;
- Objectively evaluate the insured’s claim and to give at least as much consideration to the insured’s interests as it does its own.
If you are a victim of insurance bad faith, it is important to contact our law offices as soon as possible.
