Bad Faith

Insurance companies are required to honor claims as defined by insurance policies.

Refusing to honor the policy, or treating a legitimate claim in an unfair and unreasonable manner may result in a bad faith claim against the insurance company. Under North Carolina law, insurance companies may be liable for treble damages for acting in “bad faith.”

In North Carolina, bad faith may include:

  • Unreasonably denying claims;
  • Unreasonably delaying payments;
  • Misrepresenting material facts;
  • Forcing an insured to sign a release of claim; or
  • Failing to conduct a reasonable investigation.

If you believe your business is a victim of an insurance company acting in “bad faith,” contact Miller Law Group.
