Examples of Bad Faith Claims in Colorado

In Colorado, the Unfair Claims Settlement Practices Act is designed to protect consumers when insurance companies unreasonably deny claims. The law requires insurance companies to act in good faith, which means they must acknowledge claims, investigate, and provide valid reasons for delaying paying a claim or denying a claim.

Common examples of insurance bad faith claims include:

  • Failing to promptly investigate claims
  • Undue delay in handling claims
  • Denying claims without a reasonable investigation
  • Failing to affirm or deny coverage
  • Refusing to work in good faith to settle claims
  • Unreasonably misinterpreting an insurance policy

The law penalizes insurance companies for acting in bad faith. If your insurance company has not acted in good faith, you could be awarded three times the amount of the damages, attorney’s fees, and court costs. The first step is to determine if you have a bad faith claim.

It is a good idea to create a log with information about each contact with your insurance company and details of your communications to show that you have complied with all requests from the adjustor or that the insurance company is not promptly responding.

Was your claim unjustly denied by your insurance company? Have they failed to protect you from other insurance company's claims? Let us help. Call Curtis | Walton Law today! We proudly serve Englewood, Littleton and the surrounding area!

Types of Bad Faith Claims

There are two types of bad faith claims, depending on whether the situation involves your insurance company failing to cover your damages or failing to protect you against claims from a third party.

First Party Bad Faith

First-party bad faith claims arise from an insurance company failing to investigate a claim or refusing to pay. This would be a claim against your own insurance company for unreasonably denying your claim.

Third Party Bad Faith

Third party insurance bad faith claims arise from an insurance company failing to properly investigate a claim, defend, indemnify, or settle a claim from a third party. For example, you buy insurance expecting that your coverage will protect you against claims from another person, if you are involved in an accident. When your insurance company fails to investigate or settle a claim, you may have an insurance bad faith claim.

What Goes Into a Bad Faith Insurance Settlement?

If you have been the victim of bad faith insurance practices, our bad faith insurance lawyers can fight to get you compensation for the following:

  • Compensation that was rightfully yours through your insurance policy
  • Punitive damages - a financial award that is intended to punish the insurance company for their bad faith practices and deter other companies from doing the same
