Charleston Bad Faith Insurance Law Firm

In West Virginia, the Unfair Trade Practices Act (UTPA) prohibits insurance companies from engaging in unfair or deceptive business practices, including unfair claim settlement practice. Under the act, insurance companies cannot fail to respond or act promptly regarding insurance coverage claims, attempt to settle claim for less than their worth or delay investigation of claims.

Courts have also held that a duty to interact with policyholders in an honest, fair and good faith manner is implied in every insurance contract.

At Cyrus, Adkins & Walker, Attorneys at Law , we help policyholders who have been harmed by an insurance company's breach of the UTPA recover damages for their injuries. Third-party claimants' rights are limited, but individuals may still recover through the insurance commissioner's office.
