When an accident happens and a Florida resident has to contact their insurance company about recovering under their policy, that individual may expect prompt service and information that will help them work through the process of becoming whole. While in many cases insurers act reasonably and perform as they should under the agreements that they make with their policy holders, in some situations insurers act with bad faith. Bad faith involves dishonesty and engaging in unfair practices.
Victims of vehicle accidents can suffer many types of incident-related harm. They may wind up spending significant amounts of time in Florida hospitals as they recuperate and incur lengthy medical bills as a result. They may be unable to work because of their accident-related limitations and lose income from their inabilities to hold down jobs. Additionally, it is possible to experience fears and apprehensions regarding driving or riding in cars and find that the quality of life is diminished in the wakes of their ordeals.
