“The Colorado Court of Appeals in Kyle W. Larson Enterprises, Inc., Roofing Experts d/b/a The Roofing Experts v. Allstate Insurance Company, 2012 COA 160 (Sept. 27, 2012), has now held that the so-called Colorado “bad faith statute” applies not only to insureds, but also to those who assert claims on behalf of insureds under an insurance policy.” …contractors!
But in my opinion, lack of communication from the insurance company, is a part of their game. I get ghosted by adjusters ALL THE TIME. I have to be persistent. get the homeowner involved. ask for a claim supervisor…if you are serious about a bad faith claim, i would ask a lawyer who specializes in this. It sounds like a lot of work, time and money to bring forth a bad faith claim on an insurance company, when there are easier, free ways to get the insurance companies to respond.
