Are underinsured motorist coverage carriers acting in bad faith on car accident claims?

Auto lawyer Steve Gursten says uninsured motorist coverage is illusory, and insurance carriers are denying policy holders who have been in car accidents

Auto lawyer Steven Gursten tells Michigan Lawyers Weekly that auto insurance carriers who provide underinsured motorist coverage (UIM) in Michigan are acting in bad faith by routinely denying policy holders permission to settle their auto accident claims – even when plaintiffs have met all the conditions for settlement outlined in their auto insurance policies.

According to Gursten, auto insurers are basically providing illusory coverage because they’re accepting premium payments with no intention of ever actually paying out No-Fault benefits.
