Fighting against Bad Faith Insurance Claims
The Deceptive Practices of Bad Faith Claims
When you agree to work with an insurance company, you are signing on to use their services when necessary. You have entered into an agreement with them, and they promise to provide you coverage for your losses as outlined in your policy. It is their duty to hold up their end of the agreement and provide you coverage for your claims in a good faith way. When they do not follow through on their promises, bad faith is happening to you.
If your insurance company is acting in a deceptive way, you have rights under California law to fight these actions. Your insurance company may have committed fraud, lied to you or made promises they can no longer keep. This is a bad-faith claim, and you need assistance from a KM attorney to fight your insurance company.
Insurance companies that act in bad faith may not pay you in a timely manner. They may refuse to defend themselves in court. They may deny your claim or use unnecessary paperwork to delay and distract you from the claim process.

They will work to prove that the insurance company acted in bad faith and navigate the complex laws surrounding these cases.
