What is a Civil Remedy Notice?

A Civil Remedy Notice (CRN) is crucial in addressing specific legal issues, particularly those related to insurance claims and potential violations of Florida's insurance laws. It serves as a formal notification to an insurance company or other parties involved, indicating that a policyholder or claimant believes the insurer has violated specific provisions of the law.

Why file a Civil Remedy Notice?

Filing a CRN is essential when dealing with violations or issues related to insurance claims. Some of the violations or problems that can be addressed through a CRN include:

  • Claim Denials: If your insurance claim has been wrongfully denied or delayed, a CRN can be used to address the issue.
  • Underpayment: If your insurer has offered an insufficient settlement amount for a covered claim, a CRN can help rectify the situation.
  • Failure to Investigate: Insurance companies are required to promptly and thoroughly investigate claims. If they fail to do so, a CRN can hold them accountable.
  • Unfair Settlement Practices: Unfair practices during the settlement process, such as misrepresentation or coercion, can be addressed through a CRN.
  • Violation of Policy Terms: If your insurance company violates the terms and conditions of your policy, a CRN can be used to demand compliance.

What is a bad faith insurance lawsuit?

A CRN plays a significant role in potential bad faith insurance lawsuits. Bad faith occurs when an insurance company fails to fulfill its obligations to its policyholders in a reasonable and fair manner. In cases where the insurance company is believed is to be acting in bad faith, the attorneys at Correa & Martinez will file the appropriate Civil Remedy Notice, pursuant to Florida Statute 624.155, in order to protect our client’s rights in pursuing a bad faith claim. It allows the insurance company to rectify the issue, resolve the claim fairly, and avoid litigation. However, if the insurer continues to act in bad faith or fails to resolve the matter satisfactorily, the policyholder may proceed with a bad faith lawsuit.
