The threat of a "bad faith" claim is one that every insurer faces every time it handles a claim for an insured. Such claims can arise from first-party and third-party claims under a variety of circumstances, even where there is no dispute over coverage. Bad faith claims can take many forms, and may be based on common law or statute.

This Compendium identifies the relevant principals governing bad faith claims in these four contexts in all 50 states:

  • Good Faith and Fair Dealing
  • Failure to Settle
  • Primary/Excess Obligations
  • Statutory

The Compendium identifies the leading court decisions in order to provide an understanding of the governing principles and a framework within which to analyze any "bad faith" claims or threats that an insurer may face.
