Long Term Disability
People buy insurance in an effort to feel more secure knowing they will be taken care of in the event of an accident or injury. Individuals with long term disabilities rely on their benefits for survival and many have no other means of support. Sadly, insurance providers often take advantage of or mistreat those with long term disabilities and fail to provide adequate insurance coverage. This type of insurance fraud is known legally as "bad faith," which refers to several unfair or fraudulent practices insurance companies partake in to delay or deny the payment of a valid claim. Those who are the victim of insurance bad faith have the right to take legal action against their insurance company.

Examples of Long Term Disability Bad Faith
Insurance fraud is prevalent in the United States. Sadly, many companies take advantage of members of society who are suffering from long term disabilities. Examples of long term disability insurance bad faith may include:
- Policy benefits are denied for invalid or fraudulent reasons
- Benefits or money that is offered is below the amount stated in the policy
- Payments to the policyholder are unreasonably delayed
- Inadequate investigations by insurance company
Any actions that disrupt a policyholder's right to receive proper benefits as stated under their insurance contract is considered insurance fraud and victims are eligible to seek compensation for their losses.
