Below is a list of some very basic examples of bad faith conduct when it comes to insurance companies in the United States. These examples have actually been documented as official company strategies and are regularly employed tactics, even today:
- Unreasonable denial or termination of an insurance claim that should have been paid
- Unreasonable delay in making payments to the policyholder
- Unreasonable failure to defend a policyholder who has been sued under a policy containing a liability provision
- Unreasonably attempting to under-settle or lowball the payment of a claim.
