Bad faith insurance is when an insurer fails to comply with its implied covenant of good faith and fair dealing to customers by refusing to pay a policyholder's valid claim. When an insurance company is determined to have acted in bad faith, they are typically obliged to pay you both what they should have provided you with in the first place and potentially thousands of dollars in fines to make up for the legal fees and difficulty they caused you.

Finding a dedicated local lawyer can be challenging. Many large law firms have set up satellite offices around Nevada,, so it can be hard to determine whether you are dealing with a local lawyer or not. A satellite office can make a legal professional appear local, but that doesn't mean the attorney will provide a local counsel's benefits. Therefore, be sure to ask where the attorney lives before making a decision. Seek referrals from friends and family members to avoid falling into the hands of lawyers not familiar with your territory.
