Insurance Bad Faith is a legal term that describes a claim that an insured person may have against an insurance company for its bad acts. Under the laws of Montana , insurance companies owe a duty of good faith and fair dealing to the persons they insure. This duty is often referred to as the “implied covenant of good faith and fair dealing” which automatically exists by operation of law in every insurance contract. If an insurance company violates that covenant, the insured person (or “policyholder”) may sue the company on a tort claim in addition to a standard breach of contract claim.
