Las Vegas Insurance Bad Faith Attorneys
Representing Claimants in Disputes with Insurance Companies
When you purchase an insurance policy—be it homeowners’ insurance, commercial insurance, or auto insurance—and make continuous payments on your premiums, you rightfully expect your insurance company to uphold its end of the deal when the time comes for you to file a claim. Unfortunately, many insurance companies use deceitful tactics in an effort to wrongfully devalue, dispute, or deny their policyholders’ claims. Fortunately, you have options.

What Is Insurance Bad Faith?
Insurance bad faith is a legal term used to describe wrongful actions by an insurance provider used to avoid paying its insured’s claims. Ostensibly, the purpose of purchasing an insurance policy is to protect yourself in the event that you suffer property damage, are injured, or (in some cases) face civil legal action. As a policyholder, you have the right to expect your insurance company to provide coverage under the applicable terms of your policy. When they fail to do so, they are acting in bad faith.
Insurance bad faith takes many forms; some of the most common include:
- Denying a claim without providing a reason
- Denying or refusing to pay out a valid claim
- Unnecessarily delaying a claim investigation/payout
- Failing to conduct a proper investigation into an open claim
- Devaluing a claim (offering less compensation than the claim is worth)
- Misrepresenting a policy or the specific language of a policy
- Delaying or denying decisions on requests for medical treatment approval
- Refusing to provide documentation
- Threatening a policyholder (via written or verbal statements)
Essentially, when an insurance company breaches its express or implied warranty to a policyholder, the claimant can take legal action against the insurance provider.
