Like other businesses, insurance companies exist to make a profit. While they do offer financial services to cover unplanned, harmful and costly incidents, these corporations cannot make money without taking in more than they pay out. Sometimes they will sacrifice the trust and well-being of their clients in order to ensure that they come out on top. One of the most common tactics used by providers in order to avoid losing money is unreasonably delaying payment to the policyholder.
Unreasonable delays in payment can cause serious financial problems for the victims of such treatment. If your insurance provider has acted in this manner of bad faith, then you have the right to take legal action against the company.

What is an Unreasonable Delay?
One of the more common acts of bad faith made by insurance companies is the delay in payment of benefits to policyholders. Typically, these delays are created in the insurance provider’s best interest. Companies will often use excuses such as the following in order to justify their holdups:
- Requesting unreasonable or unnecessary documents
- Claiming that certain documents need review
- Claiming that they cannot pay benefits until a third-party payment is made
- Delay without explanation
If a delay in payment reaches a year or more, it may be considered unreasonable. If you have been a victim of this bad faith practice, then you deserve justice.

Don’t Let Yourself Be a Victim
By failing to distribute the owed funds to policyholders or accident victims, insurance companies protect themselves from a loss of profit. They know that medical bills and damage claims can be extremely expensive, so they take all the steps they can to delay payment and put the injured party in a position of desperation. The victim may then opt to accept any benefits offered – often times significantly less than he or she deserves – in order to help ease the financial burden of costly medical bills.
