Help With Your Response To Bad Faith Insurance Practices
Insurance, whether it is for residential or commercial real estate, valuable assets, motor vehicles or health coverage, is considered a safety net that will be there in times of need. Unfortunately, people discover too often that insurance companies promise one thing and provide something completely different. They are in business to make a profit, which often leads to them undervaluing a valid claim or denying it completely.
You do not have to take an insurance company’s decision as a final verdict. At Jontiff & Jontiff in Miami, we help individuals and businesses stand up to insurance providers when they are acting in bad faith.

What Bad Faith Insurance Practices Look Like
Several actions on the part of an insurance company may qualify as bad faith tactics. The most obvious examples are wrongfully denying a valid claim or significantly undervaluing a claim. Less common examples of bad faith insurance include:
- Denying a claim without conducting a proper investigation
- Delaying payment of a claim without proper cause
- Failure to acknowledge receipt of a claim or reply in a timely fashion
- Failure to provide a reasonable explanation for denying a claim
- Making changes to a claim without proper consent from a policyholder
- Canceling a claim without cause or without notifying the policyholder
