Filing a Bad Faith Lawsuit Under Florida law, insurance claims are filed with insurance companies by clients who entered into an agreement with the company that as long as the client pays their premiums for the policy, the insurance company will process that claim in good faith and fair dealing. Unfortunately, not all insurance companies live up to this agreement and fails to handle claims as promised. When this happens, the client may have grounds to file a bad faith insurance lawsuit.
At the Law Offices of Arcadier, Biggie & Wood, our attorneys have successfully represented many clients who have filed insurance claims under Florida law, only to have the insurance company refuse to cover their claim.
When an insurance company denies a valid under Florida law insurance claim unfairly, the policyholder could face significant financial devastation. A policyholder trying to fight the insurance company’s denial on their own could be overwhelmed by the insurance company’s team of attorneys and large budget, making this a very difficult fight for the policyholder. This is why having a skilled attorney from our firm advocating for you against these teams of insurance company attorneys is critical.
Some examples of an insurance company exhibiting bad faith include:
- The insurance company takes an unreasonable amount of time to process and pay the policyholder’s claim.
- The insurance company fails to adequately investigates the policyholder’s claim but denies claim or undervalues the amount they pay for the claim.
- The insurance company denied the claim, but fails to provide the policyholder with a valid or satisfactory reason.
There are several different types of insurance claims under Florida law that can result in bad faith lawsuits, including personal injury lawsuits. For example, if an insurance company is legally obligated to cover a homeowner in a premises liability lawsuit but fails to do so, the homeowner can sue the insurance company by filing a bad faith insurance lawsuit.
Settlements and award in bad faith insurance claim lawsuits will be determined on the circumstances of the case, the insurance company’s reputation, and if the company has any prior past bad faith claims filed against them. In some cases, the settlement can actually be more than what the original claim payout would have been. In some cases, the policyholder may even be awarded punitive damages.
