Insurance 101 – Chapter 16 Volume 30 – Unfair Claims Settlement Practices Act

Unfair Claims Settlement Practices Act

All 50 states have enacted, in some form, an Unfair Claims Settlement Practices Act that sets forth statutory requirements as to the contents of the denial letter. Evidence of statutory violations may be offered to prove the insurer’s malice or bad faith, so care must be taken to follow the statutory or regulatory requirements in the jurisdiction.
