Florida Insurance Bad Faith Attorney
Insurance Bad Faith Claims in Melbourne & Brevard County
When we buy insurance—whether automobile, health, home, or life—we expect that after paying our premiums month after month, year after year, if the time comes when we need our insurance, it will be there for us. And that should be the case! Unfortunately, many insurance companies let down their customers and practice in bad faith.
If you believe your insurance company has wrongfully denied your claim, you may have grounds for an insurance bad faith claim. In other words, you can dispute your insurance provider’s denial if you believe it is invalid, and Nance Cacciatore can help.
Since 1963, our firm has been representing clients in and around Brevard County, providing personalized legal attention and aggressive advocacy. From our office in Melbourne, our Florida insurance bad faith attorneys can offer the answers you need and the representation you deserve.
What Is Bad Faith Insurance?
Bad faith insurance is any action or inaction by an insurance company that violates a policy or goes against fair business/trade practices. Insurance companies have a duty to their policyholders; they are responsible for properly investigating claims in a timely manner and paying out rightful claims for covered losses. When they fail to do this, they have acted in bad faith.
Some relatively common examples of bad faith insurance include:
- Delaying investigations into claims
- Disputing or denying rightful claims
- Failing to provide adequate explanations for denied claims
- Insufficient or improper communication
- Unreasonable demands and requirements
- Altering an insurance policy after a claim is filed
- Undervaluing claims
- Delaying or failing to provide payments
- Increasing premiums after a claim is filed
- Attempting to convince a policyholder to not file a claim
If your insurance company has done any of these or has engaged in other wrongful conduct, do not wait to contact our Florida bad faith insurance attorneys at Nance Cacciatore. We are prepared to immediately begin reviewing and investigating your claim, gathering applicable evidence, and developing a personalized legal strategy to protect your rights.
Bad Faith Insurance Practices on Legitimate Claims
It often feels like insurance companies can do whatever they want with no repercussions. We are here to tell you that bad faith insurance practices are illegal, and we are here to help you if you have been a victim.
A bad faith insurance practice means the insurance company either refuses to pay your legitimate claim or refuses to investigate and process it within a reasonable period. They cannot refuse to pay a legitimate claim, nor can they make you sit around for years waiting for their decision. You might think that only small, “fly by night” insurance companies try to get away with such crimes, but large companies do it too.
