What You Should Know About Insurance Claims
When you need to make an insurance claim, no matter what type of claim it is, you must keep your financial safety in mind. Although not all insurers treat their insureds unfairly, the reality is that some insurers do not have your best interests at heart. Their attitude is, the less they pay out to you, the greater their profit.
Some tactics they may use include:
- Using both your oral and written statements against you
- Using their own appraisers to measure your loss, who low-ball the extent of your damage because that tactic guarantees more referrals from the insurance companies
- Endlessly delaying your settlement, and then offering less than you deserve
- Denying a claim for illegitimate reasons
What Can An Attorney Do For Me?
Because these insurers are trained in these tactics and have their own lawyers protecting them, it is wise to seek legal help immediately because even information in your first contact before you file can be used against you later. Our attorneys know how to handle these conversations. We can speak with the insurer on your behalf, and advise you through the often endless paperwork your insurer may demand of you. We will also help during the investigative period to give you the best chances of a successful recovery on your claim. And if your insurer acts in bad faith, we can help you reach a fair settlement or litigate against them if needed.
