Although it’s the claimant’s responsibility to provide adequate evidence for an insurer when requested, these requests also need to be reasonable. If an insurer is continually asking for more documentation or evidence of damages after an excessive amount of information has already been sent, that insurer may be delaying or stalling a claim. This sort of behavior is considered bad faith on the insurer’s behalf, and may result in legal action from the wronged policyholder.
If your insurer has mistreated you and still hasn’t provided you with the coverage your policy calls for, you may want to think about filing an insurance bad faith lawsuit for your fair coverage.
