BAD FAITH – CLAIM DENIAL – REJECTION OF MEDICAL CLAIMS
Although you are the one paying the premiums, the insurance companies represent their shareholders, not you. Their goal is to maximize the return for their shareholders, and they accomplish this by trying to avoid paying claims. In those instances where payment cannot be avoided, they strive to pay as little as possible and delay payment for as long as possible. The maxim of most insurance companies is: “Delay, Deny and Defend!”

Bad Faith Insurance
Bad faith on the part of an insurance company may entitle you to punitive damages — that is, a monetary award meant to punish the insurance company for acting in bad faith. Because some insurance companies are overzealous in rejecting claims, an experienced attorney who understands the concept of “bad faith” by insurance companies may be able to leverage that knowledge to get you extra compensation or to settle your claim more quickly for the full amount of your damages.
