There are some warning signs as to when an insurance company is acting in bad faith. Examples of what to look out for:

  • If an insurance company isn’t responding to you and they delay in their response
  • If an insurance company is not giving you answers that make sense to you
  • If you’ve made and documented a claim, and the insurance company is giving you back answers that don’t match that documentation
  • If an insurance company doesn’t want to put things in writing that they are telling you verbally
  • If the insurance company tells you that you should not speak to a lawyer

These are things that you should look into more clearly and carefully to make sure that the insurance company is acting in good faith.
