While the essence of insurance is to hedge against financial losses caused by unexpected damages, there are instances when an insurance company fails to fulfill its obligations and duty of good faith. This instance, more commonly known as insurance bad faith, can happen in several ways, including an insurer’s misrepresentation of the contract or its failure to disclose specific policy scopes.
