Bad Faith Insurance Claims
Car Accident Attorney in San Diego
A bad faith insurance claim is when your insurance company fails to live up to their insurance contract with you, or to follow the strict insurance claims handling guidelines outlined by the California insurance regulations. Although most insurance companies will provide you the compensation you are entitled to as the policyholder, there are times when this does not occur. If you find yourself struggling with your insurance carrier over your car accident claim, contact a San Diego car accident attorney for help with pursuing a bad faith insurance claim.
There have been known instances where insurance companies have established internal policy on ways of handling insurance claims that will save them money which violate the California Fair Claims Settlement Regulations. These regulations carry stiff penalties for those who violate them. Instances of delaying payment on a legitimate claim, denying a valid claim or attempting to make a "low ball offer" - one which is patently below what should legitimately be offered - can be considered bad faith and acted on by your legal representative. At the Pacific Attorney Group, we have assisted many in bringing insurance companies who have treated their insured's unfairly to justice.
