Los Angeles Bad Faith Insurance Claim Attorneys
California law imposes on every insurance contract a duty of good faith and fair dealing, based on fundamental fairness. The duty requires both parties to the insurance contract to conduct themselves in a manner which is fair and reasonable. It prohibits them from acting or failing to act in any way that would unreasonably deprive the other of benefits owed under the insurance policy. The duty prevents insurance companies from delaying or denying benefits owed under the insurance policy without just cause. If the insurance company delays or denies benefits owed under the policy in an unreasonable manner or without just cause, it acts in “bad faith,” and the law may permit you, the injured insured, to recover not only the policy benefits, but also emotional distress damages, consequential damages, attorneys’ fees, pre-judgment interest and punitive damages.
