Insurance Bad Faith in San Diego

Fierce Advocacy for San Diego Injury Victims

You make payments to your insurance company every month in the good faith understanding that, should the worst occur, the company will come through for you. Unfortunately, this is all too often not the case. If the insurance company does not uphold its end of the contract with an insurer, this is a serious matter. You have rights, and at The McClellan Law Firm, we want to make sure that those rights are upheld.

“Good faith” is not just an expression of ethics. Good faith is a legal requirement that your insurance company will enact their end of a contractual agreement, in an honest and timely manner. When a company acts in bad faith, you have the right to hold them legally responsible for their actions and hold them accountable to your agreement. When it comes to insurance, you have legal recourse when you have been treated fraudulently.

The McClellan Law Firm is here to uphold your rights—contact us for a free case consultation.

Are You Dealing With an Insurance Dispute?

Acting in bad faith is any action that delays or denies your benefits without reasonable justification. Most insurance companies are required to begin thoroughly and competently investigating and responding to all claims within a timely manner, typically 15 days. In addition, they have 15 days to inform you if there is a problem with your benefits, or if there is any reason they would not be able to fulfill your policy.

If your insurance company has done the following, you may be entitled to a bad faith claim:

  • Poor investigation of your claim
  • Any form of intentional dishonesty
  • Delaying investigation of your claim
  • Postponing payment without warning
  • Denying your claim without justification
  • Altering your policy without your consent or knowledge
