How can I sue my homeowner's insurance company for bad faith?

Question Details: I had a flood in my home 2/12/18 which resulted in the loss of my main floor and basement, all my personal property on these floors, forced us to live outside the home for 14-16 months. My insurance has not paid me for my living expenses, personal property lost and refuses to uphold the homeowner's insurance contract as written. I have filed a complaint with the state insurance commission. I have been forced to empty my savings to pay for temp living expenses, etc. and for replacing items damaged from the original event. I have also had to leave my job and finally filed bankruptcy awaiting their payment. I need help and have over 16 months of mistreatment and breach of contract from my insurance company.
