What Is Bad Faith?

Bad faith in workers' compensation occurs when an insurance company denies or delays benefits for unjustified reasons, or fails to properly investigate a claim. This type of behavior by insurance companies can cause an injured worker to suffer financially and emotionally. It can also place an undue burden on the worker's family.

Proving a Bad Faith Claim

Proving bad faith in a workers' compensation case requires evidence that the insurance company acted unreasonably or knowingly disregarded the worker's rights. Proving this means demonstrating:

  • Unreasonable Denial: Showing that the denial of your claim was not based on valid reasons or evidence.
  • Delay Tactics: Establishing that the insurance company unreasonably delayed the processing or payment of your claim.
  • Failure to Investigate: Illustrating that the insurer did not conduct a thorough and fair investigation into your injuries and claim.
  • Deceptive Practices: Providing evidence of dishonest or deceptive practices by the insurance company.

This can be difficult to prove without the assistance of an experienced attorney who knows how to gather the necessary evidence. Our attorneys have years of experience in these types of cases and can help you build a strong case.
