Reasons Insurance Companies Withhold Payments
It may sound harsh but insurance companies are not concerned with expediting an accident victims’ recovery. These entities are only concerned with their bottom line. Therefore, they will engage in whatever tactics are necessary to remit the victim as little compensation as possible. These establishments will often give a variety of excuses why the claim was denied or deliberately stall the claims process.
Actions Victim Can Take
Regardless of whatever final actions are employed, legal experts recommend acting fast. The slightest degree of hesitation could further limit the victim’s chances for a successful outcome. That said, experts tend to agree that the first step should be to:
Retain The Services Of An Auto Accident Attorney
While hiring a legal professional is an important initial measure, the victim must ensure said car accident lawyer possesses extensive experience handling insurance claim denials. Said subjects possess knowledge about how insurance companies work and often possess significant experience challenging such establishments.
Make A Formal Appeal
After consulting with your accident lawyer, said individual might suggest making a formal appeal. To accomplish this task, the applicant must script a demand letter to the insurance provider in question. Included in this correspondence should be the case’s facts, any pertinent evidence the victim is in possession of and an accounting of medical expenses. Should the claim still be denied, victim and lawyer can initiate a formal appeal.
File A Civil Suit
Should the appeal be denied, the victim is encouraged to have their lawyer file a civil suit against the denying company. Unfortunately, civil suits involving insurance companies are often arduous and time-consuming. Many such entities employ their own legal teams comprised of experienced and skilled legal professionals armed to do battle and defend the company, not the victim’s best interests.
That said, an experienced car accident attorney may be able to circumvent the company’s argument by executing tasks, such as, procuring and presenting credible evidence and interpreting medical records.
