What Is Insurance Bad Faith?
Colorado law prohibits insurance companies from acting in bad faith toward individuals who are entitled to insurance benefits. Acting in bad faith generally means that an insurance company has acted unreasonably in delaying or denying payment of insurance benefits.

Understanding Colorado's Insurance Bad Faith Laws
Colorado also has laws in place to penalize insurance companies who act in bad faith. For example, an individual injured in a car accident may be able to seek damages from the insurance company of the person who caused the accident if that insurance company acts unreasonably in delaying or denying the injured person's claim. An insured individual may also seek damages against their own insurance company if the insurance company unreasonably delays or denies payment of a claim and the insurance company knew it was acting unreasonably. This situation might arise in a home repair context, where the homeowner's insurance company unreasonably delays benefits for storm damage.
Colorado also has statutes in place to protect insured individuals from having their claims unreasonably delayed or denied by their own insurance company and that provide for specific penalties for an unreasonable delay or denial.
