Hailstorms can affect almost every region and type of commercial property in the United States. These hail losses can be expensive and inconvenient for businesses, and claims are made even more difficult by insurance companies that act in “bad faith.” Although businesses depend on their hail coverage to help them recover after a severe storm, the truth is that hail claims account for a huge percentage of insurance payments every year—and insurance companies are willing to sometimes use unfair and inappropriate tactics to deter and limit legitimate commercial claims for losses. However, even when troubles arise, it is possible to fight back and maximize a hail claim.
What Kinds of “Bad Faith” Tactics Do Insurance Companies Use to Deny Commercial Claims for Hail Losses?
When insurance companies leave policyholders waiting without reason, deny legitimate claims, or lowball claim payments, they are acting in what is called “bad faith.” The insurance company that provides your commercial hail coverage has a duty to handle claims appropriately and promptly, and the company must pay for legitimate claims of commercial losses. If they don’t take these duties seriously and start acting in “bad faith,” policyholders may have to turn to legal action for a fair resolution.
