BAD FAITH AND EXTRA
CONTRACTUAL EXPOSURE

Bad faith claims are some of the most serious types of accusations that can be brought against an insurance company. Not only do such claims question an insurance company's claims handling process, but they can result in thousands, if not millions of dollars in extracontractual exposure for the company.

Doug Smith That is why Smith & Associates, Inc. takes every possible step to minimize the possibility of bad faith claims being brought against our clients and vigorously defends such claims if and when they are alleged.

Bad faith liability claims range from an insurer's erroneous denial of coverage to an insurer's failure to settle a claim within policy limits.

We carefully examine all the facts surrounding a claim and assist the clients in drafting positional letters. Our coverage expertise helps us to inform clients as to whether they should become involved in settlement negotiations of underlying claims.
