Insurance companies have an obligation to treat policy-holders properly – all too often they do not. Bad faith is when the insurance company does not abide by the terms and conditions of the insured’s policy and willfully refuses to pay a legitimate claim for damages. Examples of bad faith include denial of insurance benefits due under a policy, an unreasonable delay in payment of benefits due, an unreasonably low offer to compensate justified damages, and failure to promptly investigate or failure to properly investigate a claim.
