Last month’s article offered an overview of the provisions found in 19 states’ versions of the Unfair Claims Practices Regulations. These regulations extend the deadlines to accept or reject a claim and/or waive the requirement for providing the claimant reasons as to why the insurer is seeking a time extension for the investigation, should evidence of fraud or arson be found.

We will also discuss some general concepts regarding handling arson or fraud claims in both types of jurisdictions.
