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.

They may deny your claim or use unnecessary paperwork to delay and distract you from the claim process.
