A Myrtle Beach Attorney Can Help Protect Injury Victims’ Rights

The insurance business seems straightforward: consumers pay their premiums on time, and in return, the insurance company provides compensation when an accident or injury occurs. Insurance companies have a duty to hold up their end of the bargain, and when they don’t, this is called acting in bad faith.
Injury victims deserve to have their voices heard and have their claims processed in a timely manner. At times, your recovery and your future depend on it. An experienced lawyer can help ensure that a claim is not ignored or unfairly delayed. Having navigated this system before and negotiated with these insurers, an attorney understands how the process works, where the pitfalls may be, and how to get the attention of the insurance company. Our attorneys can:

Manage Paperwork 

Insurance claims can be complicated, and the process can require a significant amount of documentation and other paperwork. Insurance companies will use any failure to provide appropriate paperwork to further delay or even deny a claim. An attorney can manage this task, making sure that all the necessary items are ready to go. 

Make Appropriate Phone Calls 

Anyone who has ever called an insurance company knows how frustrating a job it can be. A lawyer knows who to talk to and what needs to be said to be heard. He can ease this burden on injury victims while they focus on their recovery. 

Pursue a Bad Faith Claim When Necessary 

At times, an insurance company is simply acting in a manner that is against South Carolina law. It can be necessary to file a legal action against them when they act in bad faith. Insurance law is complex, but an experienced attorney knows when the time has come to hold an insurance company accountable for failing to uphold their duty.
