Helpful tips for dealing with potential bad faith insurance acts

Insurance is required for so many instances of our lives (i.e. home insurance, business insurance, car insurance) it should not be an arduous process to exercise our contractual rights under the policy. But remember, insurers are in the business of making money, so it is important to understand what can be done to protect one’s rights.

How a case for punitive damages can be proven

When an insurer refuses to provide benefits when it has a contractual obligation to do so, an insured may seek a breach of contract claim. While these types of claims are common, there is a separate claim reserved for an insurer’s actions (or lack of action), that rise to a level that can be considered unreasonable, and this type of claim is called insurance bad faith. Under Arizona law, punitive damages may be recovered with such claims.

Will your insurer be skeptical about neurological injuries?

If you have recently suffered a physical injury through an auto accident, it is probably easier to understand the limitations you currently have as well as the rehabilitation time expected. For instance, your doctor may suggest that you could go back to work in 4-6 weeks. However, if you are suffering from neurological conditions from a concussion or lyme disease, the healing period condition may not be so easy to predict. Because of this, some disability insurance carriers may not believe that your condition is actually genuine, or may compare the rehabilitation time of unrelated injuries to justify improper denials.
