Tampa Insurance Dispute Lawyer
The last thing anyone wants to do after an accident or when facing a serious illness is to deal with insurance companies. Health and property insurance providers are the poster children for bureaucratic nightmares at the best of times. When they investigate a claim to evaluate whether coverage is appropriate, their communications can be cryptic, demanding, and unreasonable. If an insurer decides to act in bad faith, the situation can become all the more complicated and frustrating. Providers may stretch out an investigation in order to delay a payout or to bully a policyholder into dropping a claim or accepting a lower settlement than they are rightfully owed. They may deny a claim for made-up reasons, or fail to give any reason whatsoever. If you are stuck with a stubborn and infuriating insurance provider, you need the help of a knowledgeable, dedicated Florida insurance dispute attorney.

Bad Faith Insurance Provider Tactics
Insurance companies are generally more worried about their bottom line than about the health and wellbeing of policyholders. Claims adjusters and other insurance representatives are always looking for any excuse to deny coverage for a claim. Sometimes, they go too far, and they engage in bad faith tactics aimed at reducing a payout or avoiding coverage entirely, even where the injury or treatment is clearly covered by the policy. When an insurance provider tries to avoid paying you the coverage you are owed under your policy and the law, a passionate Florida bad faith insurance lawyer can help you fight for the compensation you deserve.
Some of the bad faith tactics insurance providers use to limit or deny coverage include the following:
- Denying a claim based on an unreasonable reading of the policy or a deliberate misunderstanding of the proposed treatment
- Failing to provide an adequate explanation for a denial of coverage
- Delaying an investigation or decision in order to pressure a policyholder into dropping a claim or accepting a lowball settlement
- Failing to conduct a proper investigation before denying a claim
- Misrepresenting the coverage of a policy at the time it is signed
- Demanding unreasonable document dumps and other evidence as part of a claims investigation
- Inaccurately claiming treatments are unnecessary or experimental
- Delaying payments on a covered claim
- Dropping all communications with a policyholder during an investigation or appeal, without explanation
