The insurance industry is regulated by both state and federal law and can be complicated to the average individual. Insurance companies are a business and make decisions everyday that affect the rights of policy holders, often to their detriment. If insurers fail to honor the terms of the policies they have underwritten, arbitrarily change coverage terms, fail to notify policyholders of cancellations or changes in their coverage, or take an unusually long time to settle a claim, the policyholder may have a claim for damages.

Bad Faith Insurance Practices
Remember that by signing an insurance policy, you have entered into an agreement with the insurance provider. Generally, you agree to pay premiums while the insurance company agrees to provide coverage according to the terms contained within the policy. Often time’s insurance companies will make decisions that adversely affect your rights including but not limited to the following:
- Termination of a policy without notification
- Delay in paying a claim
- Change in coverage without notification
- Denial of applicable coverage
- Refusal to honor a life insurance policy
