Unfair and Bad Faith Insurance Claims
Did you know that insurance companies have an obligation to their insureds to act responsibly and on behalf of their clients? There are laws and regulations imposing a duty and responsibility of insurance companies to act fairly and to follow insurance practices to protect the insured where claims have been brought. In short, insurance companies have a duty to act fairly with regard to their insured. Unfortunately, many times insurance companies do not act in the best interest of the insured but act in the best interest of the insurance company. When this occurs, the failure of an insurance company to act on behalf of the insured may constitute bad faith. Where bad faith occurs, it can result in financial losses and damages to the insured. Mr. Spatzer is able to analyze and determine if a claim for bad faith handling of insurance matters exist on behalf of a victim and to pursue the claim against the insurance company where the facts support the claims for bad faith.
If you own an insurance policy, you rightfully assume that your insurance company will honor that policy if you need to file a claim. Unfortunately, more often than not, this is not the case. Insurance companies often limit and even deny coverage of a claim without proper justification or warning to their clients. These unfair claims are also known as "bad faith" practices. Unfortunately it is the policyholders most dependent on the protection promised by the insurance policies that are most often the victims of these unethical practices.
"Bad faith" insurance law arose because too many insurance companies were taking advantage of their policyholders by taking their monthly or annual premiums, yet refusing to pay for legitimate claims. Many clients did not have the money to pursue the matter in court, and subsequently had to drop their claim. Fortunately, thanks to the passage of 'bad faith" insurance law, this is no longer the case.
