Insurance policyholders expect to be paid when policy-trigger events occur. However, some insurance companies act in bad faith, resulting in delayed, denied, and underpaid policies.
Though often subtle, bad-faith actions on the part of an insurance company are identifiable if you know what signs to look for. These include:
If you notice any of the above-listed signs when dealing with your insurance company, you may have trouble getting a fair settlement and should contact an experienced San Antonio bad-faith insurance attorney as soon as possible.
Keep in mind, however, that a simple error on the part of the insurance company is not bad faith. That said, many "errors" in concert can certainly indicate bad faith.
In all cases, it is better to err on the side of caution and assume that bad faith is at play if you notice any of the signs of its existence. Because attorneys offer free consultations, you have nothing to lose and everything to gain by attending a consultation and case review.

When filing a claim, you are required to give prompt notice to the insurance company handling your case. What qualifies as prompt notice varies from claim to claim and will usually depend heavily on the terms of the policy in question. Regardless of the specific provisions, it is always a good idea to file your claim as soon as possible.
Various types of compensatory damages may be available when you file an insurance claim, including medical costs, property damage, lost wages, pain and suffering, and loss of ability to enjoy life.
The details of your policy will explain the extent of the coverage available to you. Additionally, some cases might result in additional punitive damages if they go before a judge and jury.
Every insurance claim dispute is unique. For this reason, it is impossible to state an average time frame for resolving these claims.
However, as a general rule, the more complex the insurance claim and issues, the longer the case will likely take. Relatively straightforward claims with few issues can be resolved in as little as a few weeks, with more complex claims taking up to or over a year.
Yes. The Texas Insurance Code gives you the right to sue your insurance company if they deny your claim, but only if it acted in bad faith or engaged in some other illegal activity. In other words, just because you receive a denial does not necessarily mean you have a valid bad-faith insurance claim.
Before exploring this route, it is advisable to consult with an experienced bad-faith insurance lawyer to learn what options you have.
