Insurance Claim Dispute Attorney Foley & Small
The Duties and Responsibilities of an Insurance Company
Many insurance bad faith claims have been brought during the years since the 1993 decision in Hickman. Beyond this common law basis to assert a claim, Indiana has adopted the Unfair Claims Practices Act, but that statute does not create a private cause of action that could be asserted by an individual insured. Insureds can, however, use the unfair claims settlement practices identified in the Act as a basis of showing bad faith by the insured in asserting a common law claim for bad faith settlement practices.
