Denied Disability Insurance Claim Or Insurance Bad Faith Case?
It is possible that your disability claim was denied due to the insurance company acting to simply protect its bottom line. In these situations, an unreasonable denial can be considered insurance bad faith.
There are many valid reasons for an insurance company to deny a disability claim for benefits, but insurance companies can and do make mistakes that result in wrongfully denied claims. Oftentimes, a wrongful denial is based on an honest mistake or misinterpretation of information about the policyholder, but that is not always the case.
Sometimes, insurance companies adopt practices to purposely or knowingly delay or deny benefits that policyholders are rightfully entitled to receive. In California it is illegal for an insurer to unreasonably delay, deny, or underpay on insurance claims — and if they do so deliberately and unfairly, they may have broken the law and committed insurance bad faith.
Most policyholders won’t know if their insurance company is just being difficult or has committed bad faith. Either way, if your insurance company has refused to pay you benefits you are entitled to receive, we invite you to share your story with us. We offer a free legal consultation so you can learn more about insurance bad faith claims and whether you may have a case.
