When you purchase insurance, you are signing a contract with the company stating that you will both operate "in good faith." You do your duty by paying your premiums on time, reporting claims promptly, filing the correct paperwork, showing whatever evidence is requested and dealing with your insurance agent and adjuster. If your insurance company decides to renege on its part of the deal, this can put you in serious financial and personal trouble.
Expecting a Fair Deal
Washington State allows an individual to recover damages against an insurance company for bad faith by proving simple negligence. For instance, wrongfully denying your claim would count as negligence, as would being pressured into a settlement. If an insurance adjuster gives advice that is not in the best interests of the insured, the adjuster can be held liable for the settlement. Insurance companies are out to protect their bottom line, no matter what their advertisements say. Having an experienced lawyer on your side will help you get the compensation that you are entitled to.
