Having insurance is supposed to give you peace of mind in the event of a disaster or an accident, but this isn’t always the case. Just because you pay for your insurance every month, doesn’t mean that you’ll have coverage when you need it. Filing a claim can be a tricky process, and it seems as though insurance companies can deny you at the drop of a hat. Thankfully, you have options if your claim is denied. Although it can be frustrating, a denied or underpaid claim is not the end of your case. However, we do recommend hiring a bad faith insurance attorney to handle the process of your appeal.

How can an insurance company take advantage of you?
If this is your first time filing a claim, you don’t know what to expect. So, insurance companies will take their time handling your case. Even though they are supposed to act promptly, they can drag your case out, hoping you will settle for a lower amount. An insurance company is a business at the end of the day, so they are focused on numbers. If they paid out every single claim they would be bankrupt, and it is common for claims to be denied or partially paid. Your insurance company is counting on your inexperience so that they can save some money. Having an experienced attorney on your side will prevent you from settling for less than you deserve.
Can I handle my appeal on my own?
You could, but we wouldn’t recommend it. When you call your insurance company, often times everything that you say is recorded. Your insurance company can use anything said in these conversations against you in your claim. Keep in mind your insurance company talks to policy holders all day. Also, when you are talking to them, they are usually looking at notes about your loss. You do not want them steering you towards an innocent sounding conversation that will ultimately lead to a complete claim denial. It would be best if you had someone that is watching out for your interests in your case. We recommend hiring an attorney that understands how to handle insurance claims and appeals. We have handled numerous cases against insurance companies all across the country, and we’re confident we can handle yours.
