What Constitutes Bad Faith
In A Homeowner Property Damage Insurance Claim?

If you are experiencing difficulty getting your California homeowner’s insurance claim paid or resolved in a timely and reasonable manner, our insurance Los Angeles insurance dispute lawyers can help.

Depending on your California homeowner policy coverage, you may be able to make a claim for damage to your home and/or personal property as a result of rain, wind, water, flooding, landslides, fire or theft (which may include not only stolen property, but damage to your home as well).

If you are in an insurance dispute your insurance company may be acting in bad faith if it engages in any of the following:

  • Creating undue delays, including delays in responding to your telephone calls, letters, and other insurance dispute inquiries
  • Refusing to pay, including first promising insurance coverage then later refusing to pay
  • Refusing to pay for a covered loss or for covered property damage.
  • Refusing to pay part of your claim, including denial of coverage for a covered personal property loss or for damage to a part of your home.
  • Underpayment of your insurance claim… not paying you what is “fair” or right.
  • Replacing (or assigning multiple) adjusters in the middle of an insurance claim that result in delays, failure to pay where coverage was originally promised, or wrongful denial of insurance coverage.
  • Setting impossible conditions, which may include requiring you to have itemized receipts for every single item of lost or damaged personal property or requiring you to submit multiple types of “proof of loss,” such as numerous recorded statements or written proof of loss.
  • Sending you letters that do not reflect what actually happened, which may include letters that say something different than what you were promised in person or over the telephone.
  • Giving you the “run-around” such as having multiple contractors submit quote estimates for your structural repairs or forcing you to submit to an appraisal process when the amount and scope of your damage, including property damage, is clear.
