Insurance Bad Faith Attorneys Serving Washington State
In a best case scenario, insurance companies provide their customers with policies protecting them from financially and emotionally crippling disasters and accidents. If such a disaster occurs, the insurance carrier pays out the claim, acting in good faith toward you as dictated in the policy. When insurance companies refuse to pay claims solely to save money, this is referred to as acting in bad faith.

What Does Bad Faith Insurance Mean?
“Bad faith insurance” essentially refers to any insurance company practice that violates the provider’s duty to the insured. Bad faith insurance cases involving liability insurance, such as auto insurance, homeowners’ insurance, business insurance, etc. Liability insurance providers have a duty to act in “good faith” by doing what they are supposed to do—evaluating and paying out rightful claims—in a timely manner.
Insurance companies owe the following duties to the policy holders:
- To provide coverage
- To uphold any/all terms of a policy
- To pay valid claims covered by a policy
- To avoid unnecessary delays in investigating and/or paying claims
When insurance providers fail to uphold these duties, say by violating the terms of a policy or by unreasonably delaying an investigation into a claim, they have acted in “bad faith.” Laws permitting policy holders to file bad faith insurance claims against providers are meant to protect policyholders from these and similar practices.
If you believe that an insurance company has delayed investigation or payment of your claim unreasonably, denied a valid claim, or otherwise violated your rights or the terms of your policy, contact our insurance bad faith attorneys to learn more about what you can do to fight back.
