Insurance claims aren’t guaranteed to go your way. Contrary to popular belief, just because you pay your insurance premiums, doesn’t mean your insurance company will accept your claim. Often, they will try to gather evidence and make allegations that can help them deny it.
Top Benefits of Hiring an Attorney for Insurance Claim Disputes
Insurance claim disputes can get ugly, even if the insurance company is in the wrong. Here are just some reasons why you should always use an attorney to dispute those claims.
Small Injuries Can Worsen with Time
If your injuries get worse with time and you already accepted a settlement offer, there is nothing you can do to dispute it. By giving your consent, you automatically void all future claims pertaining to the accident.
However, if you hire an attorney beforehand, they will advise you to wait until you are aware of the full extent of your injuries and then make a claim when the time is right.
The Opposing Side Will Have Legal Representation
Do you really think you have the skills and experience to go up against a trained and professional attorney the insurance company hires? They work with them every day and are intimately familiar with strategies that can derail your insurance claim disputes.
By hiring an equally skilled attorney, you can show them you are equally serious about recovering maximum compensation. It will also increase your chances of success – especially if you hire one that has a successful track record with such cases.
When You Should Contact an Insurance Claims Dispute Attorney
Whether you have a lot or little to lose because of an insurance claim dispute, you should have an attorney in your corner. Some of the main cases which merit the presence and aid of an attorney include:
- Claims in which fault is difficult to establish.
- Claims that are expensive or complex.
- Claims in which the adjusters don’t agree with you.
- Large claims such as water damage, fire damage, etc.
If you or anyone you know have faced an adjuster and been denied compensation for a personal injury, it isn’t because the insurance company cannot pay. They just don’t want to pay because they prioritize profits over people. Get in touch with an attorney at the Law Offices of Robert T. Edens for a free legal consultation regarding your options.
