Bad Faith Insurance Claims
Oklahoma City Personal Injury Lawyer
At their core, an insurance policy is essentially a binding legal contract.
You are offering an insurance company your money for their promise to
take care of you if and when you are injured or your property is destroyed.
In business litigation terms, this is known as a compromise, and failing
to complete your end of it may be considered a serious violation. On the
other side, though, if your insurance provider does not settle your claim
in a reasonable amount of time, or uses dishonesty while handling your
claim, you may be blindsided by bad faith insurance.

Nothing Good Comes from Bad Faith Insurance
Insurance companies are, as the name states, companies, and no business
can continue unless it creates revenue or turns a profit. To save a bottom
dollar or boost their quarterly numbers, some insurance providers are
notorious for using bad faith tactics that put their customers in unfair
positions. What might be worse than anything else, by attempting to cheat
you out of thousands of dollars, they are usually only saving themselves
the tiniest fraction of one percent of their total finances.
Common examples of bad faith insurance practices include:
- Denials with no explanation
- Denying claims unnecessarily
- Conducting no investigation
- Forging/altering customer signatures
- Paying amounts below the minimum threshold
- Low-balling claims
- Using intentionally misleading language
If you are experiencing significant difficulty in settling a claim with
your insurer, it could be a red flag that indicates they are handling
your claim in bad faith. Do not let them get away with abusing your trust
or lack of familiarity with insurance law. Seek legal recourse with our
team as soon as possible.
