Policy Exclusions and Limitations: How Do You Know?
Insurance policies make promises and then often contain exclusions that attempt to limit or deny coverage for specific circumstances. The insurance company isn’t always correct in their denial of your claim and your rights may not be protected. Your insurance company may be guilty of acting in bad faith if it has a general business practice of engaging in the following activities:
Canceling, or threatening to cancel, your insurance policy unless you accept the compan’y low-ball settlement offer,
Failing to promptly conduct a reasonable investigation into your claim
Failing to provide an appropriate reason for unnecessary delay of your claim, and
Failing to respond to your phone calls, emails or letters
Forcing you to hire a lawyer in order to receive the insurance benefits you are entitled to
Misrepresenting the terms of your insurance policy and the insurance coverage available to you
Refusing to provide you with a valid reason for denying your claim
Repeatedly asking for information that is irrelevant to your claim,
Unreasonable delay in payment
