Insurance Bad Faith Attorney in Brevard County

Understanding Insurance Bad Faith

When you purchased your insurance policy, the provider entered into a fiduciary relationship with you, wherein the insurer is required to act in good faith towards you at all times. This includes cooperating with you when you file a claim for coverage, providing you with the help you need and paying the full and fair value of your claim according to the terms of your policy.

Unfortunately, countless people every year are subjected to unfair treatment on the part of their insurers, who are primarily interested in protecting their bottom line and will engage in tactics calculated to avoid paying anything more than necessary.

Common examples of insurance bad faith include:

  • Intentionally delaying payment of a claim in order to frustrate the recipient into accepting less than is deserved
  • Deliberately underestimating the value of the claim
  • Wrongfully denying a settlement

Your Right to Sue for Insurance Bad Faith

Under Florida Statutes §624.155 (2011), you have a right to sue your insurer for bad faith actions, but you must file your claim before the statute of limitations expires. If successful, you could recover damages along with court costs and attorneys' fees, and even punitive damages if it appears that you were the subject of general business practices which are willful, wanton and malicious. Your settlement or award of damages could even exceed the limits of your policy.
