Insurance is one of the most regulated industries in the country, both at the federal and state levels. Some of the regulations governing insurance companies state that:
- No policy misrepresentations. In short, they cannot promise that a policy covers a loss that it does not. Carriers also cannot change the terms of your policy without notice.
- Timely claims disposition. Your insurance company has to recognize and process your claims quickly.
- No unreasonable delays. Your carrier cannot bury you in bureaucracy or paperwork to delay your claim.
If your insurance company has stopped answering your calls, reach out to a Phoenix car accident lawyer quickly by calling Burg Simpson Arizona at 602-777-7000.
In Arizona, the law is extensive in detailing how insurance companies are – and are not – allowed to operate. For example:
- Insurance companies have a duty to act in good faith when handling claims. That includes acting reasonably when evaluating the claim and paying legitimate claims promptly. Carriers are prohibited from lowballing claims or delaying them in an attempt to force a settlement.
- Also, unlike most states, plaintiffs in Arizona are allowed to bring a breach of contract and a bad faith claim at the same time.
