Individuals and businesses which purchase insurance are entitled to the financial and legal protection for which they have paid. Unfortunately, the pressure to increase corporate profits results in insurance companies having claims offices with limited resources and an in-house culture that encourages the bad faith denial of claims. Insurers often make conscious decisions to place the company’s profitability ahead of its obligation to protect the people and businesses it insures from personal financial exposure. An insured has a bad faith claim against its insurance company when the insurance company fails to pay claims which it owes or fails to provide the individuals and businesses it insures with the legal defense to which they are entitled under their insurance policy. When an insurance company acts in bad faith by failing to pay or defend against valid claims, claimants and insureds suffer and often have the right to file a lawsuit against the insurance company for bad faith.
