Motorcycle Insurance Bad Faith

Denver and Aurora Motorcycle Accident Lawyer

Every person who operates a motor vehicle on Colorado roads is required by law to have insurance. This insurance serves to protect them and any other party from liability should an accident occur. When a motorcyclist agrees to purchase motorcycle insurance, they are entering into a contract with the insurance company. In the event they are involved in a motorcycle accident, they are entitled to the full extent of coverage that was agreed upon in the insurance policy. This ‘first party’ contract is bound by the law in Colorado. Unfortunately, insurance companies do not always uphold their end of the agreement. When this occurs, they are said to be acting in “bad faith” and can be held liable. An insurance policy is nothing more than a contract between two parties. This written document outlines all of the requirements of both parties. The insured motorcyclist must keep their policy in good standing by paying their premiums on time and the insurance company must pay for damages and medical expenses if an accident occurs. There are many ways an insurance company can act in “bad faith”:
  • Failure to Investigate a Claim
  • Unreasonable Denial of a Claim
  • Refusal to Settle a Claim
  • Failure to Reimburse you Adequately
  • Delay of Payments
When an insurance company fails to investigate a motorcyclist’s claim properly or makes unreasonable attempts to avoid honoring a motorcyclist’s claim they are not only violating the contract but preventing the insured party from receiving the financial compensation that they are entitled to receive by law. For the motorcyclist who has been injured in an accident, a claim denial from their insurance company can have a devastating financial impact on their lives. In addition, bad faith insurance practices can cause extreme emotional distress during an already difficult time. Attempting to resolve this problem without legal counsel can be an exercise in futility. In the case of a motorcyclist whose claim is denied, the fact that there has been a steady increase in the number of motorcycle accidents has only strengthened the negative stereotype that all motorcyclists are reckless. As a result, insurance companies have responded to the statistics with resistance as a result. Unfortunately, many insurance companies will fail to respond until addressed by an experienced Colorado Motorcycle Accident Attorney.
