When Insurance Companies BREAK THE LAW!

Hi everyone lawyer Britt here as a property insurance attorney. I deal with insurance companies on a near daily basis.

If you’re a property owner, please like And subscribe to my channel for tips and tricks on dealing with property insurance companies most of the time in property insurance, a property owner makes a claim, and it’s either denied or underpaid.

So we go, after the full, amount remaining for repairs.

This is called compensatory damages, because the owner is being, compensated for the loss, but sometimes we also file what’s called a bad faith claim.

This is completely different from the claim for damages or repair funds.

In bad faith, the insured seeks additional damages, including punitive damages, Beyond just the cost, to repair the property.

That faith is essentially when the insurance company does something they are not supposed to do, or they don’t do something that they are supposed to do in handling an insurance claim.

Often, this bad faith handling benefits the insurance company to the detriment of the property owner.

Now you may think that, just because the carrier denied a claim that using covered or because an adjuster was a real pain to work with that they acted in bad faith.

This may or may not be true. It all has to do with the facts.

The facts of what the carrier did or didn’t do will determine whether there has been bad faith under each State.’s laws in many states.

There are laws that list when an insurance company’s actions constitute acting in bad faith.

Most of these laws include the insurance company failing to properly investigate the claim like if they don’t send out a qualified adjuster or if they don’t evaluate all the important facts in determining whether or not to pay a claim not timely.

Responding to Communications from a property owner about a claim not paying the claim within the time they should under the law, which is 90 days in Florida and not settling the claim when they could and should have done so, meaning all the facts.

Point to payment and coverage, but the carrier is dragging their feet, notice that an insurance company denying a claim doesn’t always equal bad faith.

It’s common for adjusters to have differing opinions on coverage.

Your carrier May accept cover average for a bathroom leak, but only cover repairs for the wall, access to the piping, omitting, the waterlogged vanity or the flooring, because they don’t think it’s damaged.

This may not rise to the level of bad faith if it’s truly their opinion on coverages.

However, a carrier denying a roof claim without completing an inspection and refusing to review weather data May indicate their failure to properly investigate the claim which could rise to the level of bad faith. Now, what happens if you think the insurance company may have acted in bad faith in handling your claim? First, you must put the carrier on notice and give them an opportunity to correct their actions.

This usually means paying the full plan in Florida we file what’s called a civil remedy notice.

This essentially puts the carry on notice that they may evacuate in bad faith if, within 60 days of that notice, the carrier corrects the alleged bad faith.

There can be no bad faith playing against the carrier.

If, however, the carrier does not correct its actions, then the insured has an option to bring a bad faith claim against the care, strongly consider contacting a property insurance attorney to help you with this bad faith is complex and if you fail to properly assert the claim, You may lose your chance.

It’s important to note that in many jurisdictions before you can go forward with a bad faith claim any disputes about claim, coverage and claim payment must be resolved.

Then Property Owners can continue with the bad faith claim for damages, such as extra costs incurred by the property owner as a result of the carrier.’s bad faith or even punitive damages.

These are damages separate and above what a property owner would seek in a typical Insurance claim for the cost to repair the property back to its pre loss condition.
