When an Insurance Company Won’t Pay Your Claim

Out-of-state insurance claim denials Derrick Law Firm Injury Lawyers

When consumers follow the rules and file a legitimate claim, their insurance company has a duty to provide compensation as defined by the policy. Too often, however, these companies attempt to reduce their own liability by delaying or denying claims. When your insurance company is out of state, it can feel more difficult to fight back, but the same rules apply. An experienced insurance attorney can help accident victims obtain the compensation they deserve by:

Appealing the Denial 

Claims are often denied due to application errors, policy ambiguities, lack of coverage, and simple errors. Insurance companies do have systems to appeal a denied claim. They may not make this process straightforward, but it can be possible to revisit your claim and obtain the compensation you deserve. An experienced attorney can investigate your claim, provide additional information, negotiate with the insurance company, and act as a tenacious, knowledgeable advocate.

Suing the Insurance Company 

In some situations, an insurance company is acting in bad faith, and it is necessary to file a legal claim against the insurance company to force it to pay the compensation that is owed.
