Many people assume that insurance companies are there for their best interests when something goes wrong. But if you work with your insurance company yourself, you may be subject to unfair and unlawful practices that cost you the money you rightfully deserve.

Colorado insurance law dictates that an insurance company must act in good faith. Yet far too many insurers participate in unfair claims practices. Vance & Larson Law Firm in Alamosa advocates on behalf of policyholders, so they can secure the compensation to which they are entitled.

Signs That You Have An Insurance Bad Faith Claim

Our attorneys have seen a range of insurance bad faith cases. You may be working with your own insurance company, or you may have a tort claim with another person and their insurance company. No matter the situation, there are signs you should look out for if you believe you are being taken advantage of by an insurer:

  • Your insurer will not investigate your claim or is waiting too long to do so.
  • You receive an unreasonably low offer or a highly undervalued valuation of your losses.
  • Your claim is denied with little explanation.
  • Your claim is delayed for an unreasonable amount of time.
  • A claim that was approved is taking a long time to pay out.

These are all ways that insurance companies attempt to defraud you of the money you rightfully deserve. And they are all unlawful. If you are affected by any of these practices, do not hesitate to reach out to a lawyer as soon as possible.
