If an insurance company fails to provide coverage or benefits required by their policy, you will have certain rights and certain responsibilities. Those responsibilities will be defined in the policy. If you fail to comply with all of the requirements, you may be denied coverage, even if all premiums have been paid and the circumstances would otherwise be covered.
Insurance policies may also be controlled by state or federal law. It is sometimes possible to make the insurance company pay any attorney fees necessary to establish coverage. The insurance adjuster handling the claim for the insurance company knows the company's rights and responsibilities. A free consultation with an attorney will inform you of your rights and responsibilities.
Being injured can be devastating. You may be unable to work and lose your income. Bills can pile up, making it hard to provide for yourself and your family. To make matters worse, your insurance company may hold out until the last minute to offer you a settlement. To them, you are just a number — not a worker dealing with an injury.
Insurance disputes arise when valid claims are made against your insurance company, who either deny the claim entirely or pay part and deny part, and deprive the policyholders of the full value and protections offered under the insurance policy. At our Law Offices, we handle a variety of insurance disputes, ranging from coverage denial in the commercial context to the failure of insurers to pay for hurricane damage, property damage, life insurance and auto claims. Call our firm for a free consultation today. Many times, these cases can be handled on a contingent fee basis and your attorney's fees paid by the insurance company if you succeed.
