Common bad faith actions of insurance companies

Having insurance can bring great relief to those in Illinois who suffer injury. Insurance can cover most expenses related to an accident injury, such as doctor visits, medication and hospital stays, but it is important for the policyholder to understand any exclusions. Submitting an insurance claim after an accident is not always an easy process, and insurers may employ many tactics to delay or deny a valid claim for coverage. When this happens, the insurance company may be acting in bad faith.

A recent dog attack sheds light on the severe damage an animal can do to a child.
