Insurance Companies and Their Duty to Act in Good Faith

When people are injured in an accident, they should be able to count on insurance to provide the care and compensation that has been promised. Insurance companies in the U.S. are bound by a duty to act in good faith. This means, they enter contracts with their clients in a sincere and honest manner, and they promise and intend to provide compensation in the event of an accident, as long as the client pays the policy premium in return. When the insurance company refuses to uphold its end of the agreement even though all the requirements have been met, this could be considered acting in bad faith, which is against the law. Insurance companies can be held responsible for this behavior and be made to provide the compensation they owe victims.
