Insurance companies have special responsibilities. The law requires that insurance companies place the interests of their insured above that of themselves. Read that again. That means that if there is a decision to be made, the interests of the insured must be first.
Few of us see that practice in action. Nearly every interaction that people have with an insurance company is negative. Often, injured victims feel their insurance company causes them more harm than good.
Lawyers have a phrase for bad acts by insurance companies, bad faith. When an insurance company acts in bad faith, a good lawyer can hold them responsible. That responsibility may be much more than just the personal injuries. In some cases, the insurance company can be forced to pay damages for attorney’s fees, costs of litigation, even punitive damages.Some of these damages can be millions of dollars.
