A bad faith attorney from Pravati can help
It’s probably fair to say that most business owners have every intention of living up to the promises they make in their contracts, service agreements and guarantees. They are, therefore, acting in good faith when they make guarantees. But a small fraction of business owners never intend to fulfill their promises. When these individuals enter into an agreement, they are acting in bad faith—which is essentially fraud. If you’ve worked with a business, contractor, or insurer who acted in bad faith, you might be entitled to damages.
Acting in Bad Faith
Bad faith is a malicious action taken when one party in an agreement plans to maliciously deceive another. It’s not an instance of an error, oversight, or even overconfidence—it’s a case of intentional deceit. Sadly, some of the most notorious cases of bad faith have been perpetrated by the insurance industry—and jurors are often extremely displeased by this. In 1999, the McGeorge School of Law published a report that found that in all the bad faith verdicts against insurance companies in California between 1991 and 1999, 42 percent of the cases had punitive damages awarded, a far higher percentage than in other civil suits.
