When is an insurance company liable for a bad faith insurance practice?

An insurance company can be liable for a bad faith insurance practice where three things are proved: 

  •  The insurance company is obligated to pay the claim under the terms of applicable insurance policy
  •   The insurance company lacks a reasonable basis in law or fact for refusing to pay or denying the claim, and
  •   The insurance company either knew there was no reasonable basis for refusing to pay or denying the claim or acted with reckless disregard for whether such a basis existed
