California law imposes an “implied duty of good faith and fair dealing” in every insurance contract. This includes policies providing short-term disability insurance, long-term disability insurance, life insurance, long-term care insurance, health insurance, homeowners insurance, property/casualty insurance, commercial general liability, professional liability and officers and directors liability insurance. This duty requires insurers act in a fair and reasonable manner and refrain from improperly delaying or denying benefits. An insurance company that improperly delays or denies benefits may be acting in “bad faith” and thus California law refers to this as insurance bad faith. Insurance bad faith may also apply in cases where insurance companies fail to adequately investigate a claim. In these and other instances where an insurance company acts in its own interest, rather than in the interest of the insured policyholder, the insurance company may be liable to the insured for insurance bad faith. If you win an insurance bad faith claim, you may be able to recover attorneys’ fees, emotional distress damages, bad faith damages, compensable economic damages, punitive damages, pre-judgment interest, post judgment interest and policy benefits.
