Don’t let yourself get pushed around by uncooperative and manipulative insurers. Call a Torrance bad faith insurance attorney.
When you purchased an insurance policy, you likely did so under the assumption that your insurer would provide you with coverage in the event of an accident without any issues. And while it’s common for insurers to make obtaining a settlement difficult, there are some instances in which they will refuse to work with you at all.

Our team at Haffner Law understands that these circumstances can be confusing to navigate on your own. That’s why we offer solid representation to victims thinking of suing their insurance company for the benefits they’re entitled to.
What Is a Bad Faith Insurance Claim?
A bad faith claim refers to a lawsuit filed against an insurance company after an attempt to file a claim has been made. These suits are filed when the you believe the insurer is negotiating in bad faith, which basically means the insurer is not properly handling the claims process and is looking for any reason to avoid paying for your damages.
This may refer to the insurance company refusing to explain why a settlement offer was so low. It may also include the insurer failing to provide information regarding policy limits prior to your accident.
Other examples of bad faith behaviors include the following:
- Failing to provide an investigation after an accident
- Failing to communicate with the claimant
- Refusing to give updates about the status of the claim
- Refusing to provide payment for a claim
- Refusing to enter into negotiations at all
