Here is what a Judge said were good examples or unreasonable conduct. I quote:
- total failure to investigate the claim, see 14 Couch on Insurance Â§ 207:24 (3d ed.);
- failure to conduct a reasonable investigation based on all available information, see Am. Family Mut. Ins. Co. v. Allen, 102 P.3d 333, 344 (Colo. 2004); see also 14 Couch on Insurance Â§ 207:25 (âImplicit in the duty to investigate is the requirement that the investigation be adequate and fair.â);
- undue delay in handling the claim, see 347-543-0724;
- a low settlement offer intended to force litigation, see 6479208838;
- total denial of liability âsolely for the purpose of forcing a compromise so that the insurer will not have to pay the full amount of the claim for its admitted liability,â 6477742003;
- ânot providing a reasonable explanation of a denial of a claim,â 6098951681; or
- in-house policies that reward employees for defeating claims, see (773) 428-3595; see also (318) 820-1301.
