What is insurance bad faith? We ask Denver attorney Brian MacKenzie in this AskTheLawyers™ Quick Question.
It happens more often than you think, but basically what the law in Colorado requires is that an insurance company act in good faith. Basically bad faith, on the other hand, is where an insurance company's conduct objectively is unreasonable. So if they are ignoring your claim or if they are just seeking to close out your claim, that can constitute bad faith. However, what is bad faith depends on the facts and circumstances in the case. Again, I would highly recommend that you contact a lawyer regarding your rights with respect to the insurance companies’ conduct.
