Bad Faith

In Colorado, insurance companies have an obligation under state law to act in good faith. As part of this duty of good faith, insurance companies are required to do the following among other things in handling your claim:

  • Promptly investigate your claim
  • Promptly pay your claim
  • Communicate regularly with you regarding the status of your claim
  • Promptly pay you any undisputed portion of claim
  • Provide a prompt and reasonable explanation of any claim denial or offer compromise settlement

If an insurer fails or refuses to do any of the above, then your insurance company may have acted in bad faith. The attorneys at our Colorado firm can assist consumers and help get them the compensation they are entitled to. Consumers may be eligible for up to three times the amount of insurance benefits owed to them in addition to interest on those benefits, attorney fees, costs of filing a lawsuit against the insurance company, punitive damages (damages designed to punish the insurance company for their wrongful behavior), and other damages. The Insurance Bad Faith attorneys at Bachus & Schanker, LLC in Colorado can advise you of your rights and help you build a strong case.
