Many states, including Oklahoma, have laws that require an insurance company to handle their own insured's claim fairly and treat their own insured policyholders in good faith. Unfortunately, many times insurance companies fall short of the duty of good faith and fair dealing. Bad faith claims arise when the insurer acts unreasonably in the handling of a claim for insurance benefits. Bad faith claims can arise out of any claim made against your own insurance carrier, another person's insurance carrier owes you no such duty of good faith and fair dealing. Bad faith cases can arise out of health insurance claims, homeowner's claims, commercial policy claims, cancer policy claims, life insurance claims, automobile medical payments and uninsured motorist claims, and many other types of insurance policies and claims.
The key to knowing whether a company has committed bad faith is sometimes very well hidden by the carrier.
