Bad Faith of Insurance Companies
Insurance coverage is considered a contract between the insurance company and the person covered under the policy. In Florida, insurance companies have an obligation to act in good faith toward their policy holders. When an insurance company fails to act in good faith, it runs the risk of being held liable for coverage in excess of the policy limits. An insurance company can be found to have been acting in bad faith for numerous reasons that amount to unreasonable or unfair conduct. These include unreasonable delays in payments of benefits, failure to provide coverage when coverage is warranted, failure to settle a case within the limits of the insurance policy, failure to defend, unreasonably interpreting policy language, and other actions that manifest unreasonable or unfair conduct.
