California firm responds to instances of insurance bad faith

People in California and across the country place a great deal of trust in their insurance providers. They, in some cases, pay high premiums, expecting that the cost will pay out when needed. Unfortunately, not all insurance carriers are persuaded to act in good faith, as required by law. As a result, many people turn to the Hanson Law Firm to help them fight against cases of insurance bad faith.

Insurance policies are considered contracts; all contracts have both written and implied provisions. A written provision is one that is explicitly stated. For example, a contract may state that a buyer will pay a certain amount of money in exchange for a good. That both parties act in good faith -- meaning they are not trying to deliberately mislead or cheat the other person -- is implied.

Unfortunately, some people find that their insurance companies do not always act in good faith. There are a variety of different ways in which a company could be considered to have acted in bad faith. For example, failing to respond to a claim in a timely manner -- a breach of duty to defend -- could be considered bad faith.

Issues involving contracts and accusations of bad faith are often complex. The average person in California may have little experience with filing a legal response to such treatment. Fortunately, the attorneys at Hanson Law Firm are well-versed in the laws regarding insurance companies, including instances of insurance bad faith. We help our clients fully understand these often complicated issues and are dedicated to helping our clients seek justice.
