Holding Insurance Companies Accountable for Acting in Bad Faith
Under Pennsylvania law, insurance companies are required to willingly pay claims properly and promptly. When they discount, delay or deny payment of insurance claims, they may be violating the terms of their policies and the law.
Insurance companies owe a duty of good faith and fair dealing to the people they insure. Insurers can violate this duty by:
- Unreasonably delaying the payment of a valid claim
- Denying a valid claim
- Refusing to pay insurance benefits
- Terminating an insurance policy after a claim has been made
- Refusing to adequately defend a policyholder who is being sued
- Settling a claim for much less than it is worth
