What is a Bad Faith Insurance Lawsuit?

Posted by Sarah-Kathryn Bryan | Jun 03, 2024 | 0 Comments

A bad faith insurance lawsuit is a legal action filed by an insurance policyholder against their insurance company for acting in bad faith.  Bad faith refers to the insurance company's failure to fulfill its obligations under the insurance policy or handle the claim in a fair and reasonable manner. 

What Constitutes Bad Faith According to Alaska Insurance Law?

Bad faith can include unreasonably denying a valid claim, delaying payment without justification, or offering an unreasonably low settlement amount. The purpose of a bad faith insurance lawsuit is to seek compensation for any damages caused by the insurance company's wrongful conduct.
