How Often Are You Able to Establish an Insurance Bad Faith Case in A Denial of A Long-Term Disability Insurance Claim?

Whenever there appears to be a bad faith denial of an insurance claim, we will do discovery, and then hone in on that issue. Part of the purpose of the discovery is to discover whether the insurer acted in bad faith.

There are statistics which show that 99% of all cases settle, and if they settle, in most cases, it is required to be confidential.

We have had verdicts in trials against insurance companies for bad faith, including punitive damages, but it is hard to say how often this happens due to the confidentiality provisions of insurance bad faith settlements.

If you feel that you are a victim of insurance bad faith and if your insurance lawyer can make the insurance company worried about their denial of your claim, then the settlement the insurance company may agree to may include damages in excess of the breached contract.
