What Bad Faith Means

Bad faith is a claim made against an insurer for their behavior, which can involve any number of activities, including:

  • Ignoring claims or other communications for policyholders
  • Denying claims without conducting an investigation
  • Misrepresenting the coverage the insured's policy provides
  • Failing to provide a basis for claims denial
  • Failing to promptly inform the insured that additional information is needed to adjust a claim
  • Denying a claim or failing to promptly adjust a claim without a reasonable basis

Bad Faith in Alabama

Insurance companies in Alabama are assumed to operate on the principle of good faith, meaning they will deal with you fairly and honestly in response to a claim. Unfortunately, many insurance companies in Alabama and elsewhere skirt this line. To prove bad faith in Alabama, an insured individual’s attorney must prove that a denial was intentionally made.

Many circumstances could lead to bad faith. For Birmingham, this might mean houses or boats that caught fire, medical treatments that went awry, or water damage to your car after heavy rain, and your insurance company doesn’t want to pay.
