Insurance BREACH OF CONTRACT AND Bad Faith Claims
An insurance policy is a type of contract, and when an insurance company fails to fulfill its end of that contract, it may be liable for breach of contract. When an insurance company breaches its contract by denying a claim without a reasonable basis for the denial, it may also be liable to its insured for insurance bad faith.
A bad faith denial of a claim by your insurer can be especially frustrating, because you purchased insurance and paid your premium in order to be protected. And, when the time came that you finally needed that protection, the insurance company that was happy to take your premiums, refuses to fulfill its end of the bargain. At Choate Law Firm we have extensive experience going after insurance companies for unreasonably denying payment of valid claims.
