Bad faith lawsuits are generally where your own insurance company denies a claim of yours and then you sue them. These lawsuits occur where you have contracted for the insurance to cover certain uses and they deny your claim for such a use unreasonably.
Often insurance companies will deny your automobile claim for certain issues and hope that you do not do anything about it. Then you sue them for bad faith and they end up having to pay attorneys fees, your claims, and then whatever else the judge awards. These cases can also occur where you sue another person or driver and their insurance company does not settle for a certain amount of money that you offer them to settle for, and ultimately you win in court for much more. The defendant can assign their bad faith insurance case against their own insurance company to you to recover against them.
