Insurance Bad Faith

Shawnee (and Oklahoma City) Insurance Bad Faith Lawyers

Most courts have held that a special relationship exists between an insurance company and its insured, requiring the insurance company to act in good faith toward its insured. In particular, this means that the insurance company is under an obligation to pay when it becomes reasonably clear that a claim is covered.

There are also statutes that require an insurance company to respond to a claim within certain time limits. Insurance companies that breach their duty of good faith and fair dealing may also be liable under certain state deceptive trade practices acts.

At the West Law Firm, our attorneys represent individuals who have been wrongfully denied claims or otherwise subjected to bad faith acts by insurance companies. We represent clients in Oklahoma and throughout the nation.

Among the instances where courts have found insurance bad faith are:
  • Insurance companies failing to acknowledge and act reasonably and promptly upon notice of a claim from an insurance policy claimant.
  • Insurance companies failing to promptly investigate claims or adopt standards for investigation.
  • Insurers refusing to pay claims without conducting reasonable investigation.
  • Companies compelling policyholders to accept less than the amount ultimately recovered in actions brought by insureds.
  • Insurers failing to promptly provide a reasonable explanation for denial of a claim.

When an insurance company refuses to pay a claim it is legally obligated to pay, they may be acting in bad faith. Our insurance bad faith lawyers can help you compel your insurance company to meet their contractual obligations.
