Helping New Mexico Policyholders With Delayed or Denied Insurance Claims

What Is Insurance Bad Faith?

When you sign up for auto, home or another type of insurance and pay your premiums, you have entered a contract with an insurance entity.

You pay money; they provide coverage stipulated in the policy when an accident happens. However, for many policyholders, filing a claim and receiving coverage without any hiccups is far from common. Despite what insurance companies assure in their TV commercials and other advertisements, many often deny or delay claims in bad faith.

Common Insurance Bad Faith Practices

Delayed or denied claims can come in many forms. Below are some of the more common practices:

  • Denying that certain property is covered in the policy
  • Requiring policyholders to file excessive forms
  • Significant delays when responding to policyholder claims for compensation
  • Continuously requesting the same information multiple times from policyholders
  • Failing to disclose certain coverage in a policy
  • Alleging policyholders were late in paying premiums

Have You Experienced Any of These Insurance Practices?

If you have experienced any of the above practices, your insurance company may be dealing in bad faith. This is illegal. Getting an experienced attorney with experience dealing with insurance companies and handling bad faith claims is vital to ensuring your claim is paid and you receive the benefits you are entitled to.

Matt and his team are amazing. They contacted me when I needed to come into the office to sign forms, and they only bothered me when they had a question on something. They took care of everything from beginning to end. I am so appreciative of them. And would refer them to my closest friends.
