Can an Insurer Cancel Your Policy?

Hurricanes devastate many homes and business owners and leave them with significant damages to their property and subsequently filed claims with their insurance companies with the expectation of quick and sufficient payout for repairs. However, some of these policyholders are met with threats of possible policy cancellations. In many of these cases, though, these threats were wrongfully made by the insurers.

If your insurance company has treated you unfairly, you may be entitled to pursue the coverage your insurer rightfully owes you. For more information about how we can help you file a bad faith insurance claim to seek the payout you deserve, contact the hurricane bad faith insurance attorneys of Williams Hart today by calling (713) 352-0031.

Wrongful Policy Cancellation

In some cases, an insurer may attempt to avoid paying for the damages covered under a person’s policy by threatening to cancel the policy or violating the policy agreement outright. However, this could constitute bad faith insurance. The following violations or threats may be bad faith on the insurer’s behalf:

  • Rejecting a claim for reasons not listed in a policy
  • Delaying a claim by making repeated threats of policy cancellation
  • Cancelling a policy for reasons that aren’t listed in the policy

Dropping certain aspects of coverage or cancelling a policy agreement altogether can be considered bad faith. Policyholders left without coverage because of these violations may want to take legal action against their insurance providers in order to secure the payout they rightfully deserve.
