There are numerous ways in which an insurance company can be considered to be acting in bad faith. Aside from not paying claims (and giving no relevant reason), they can do many things to hang up your claims. Insurance companies may take a very long time to process your claim while saying that they are doing research, or some other excuse. They can cancel your insurance policy because you issued a claim against it, and state they cancelled it for another reason. If the insurance company acts in a deceptive way, or avoids communication, it can also be considered as acting in bad faith. Often, even the hiring of an attorney as an advocate can cause the insurance company to treat you unfairly, as they may view this as a threat.
