With every insurance contract, there is an implication of good faith and fair dealings. There is the idea that an insurance company will treat each claim with objectivity and fairness. However, this is not always the reality. When a claim is handled unjustly by the insurance provider, it is considered bad faith. If this happens to you, contact one of our Denver bad faith attorneys for help immediately.

If your insurance company has acted in bad faith, you could be eligible for as much as three times the amount of insurance benefits owed to you.
