Ocala Insurance Dispute Lawyer
If you pay insurance premiums for years, you should expect that your insurance company will be there to provide adequate financial support if you experience losses in an accident or other adverse event. Unfortunately, too many insurance policyholders have valid claims delayed, partially denied, or even completely denied by their insurers. Insurance companies are generally in the business of limiting liability whenever possible, so they often have many different tactics and arguments to avoid making proper payments on claims. In such a situation, you should immediately contact an experienced Ocala insurance dispute lawyer for assistance in obtaining the compensation you deserve from your insurer.
Common types of insurance disputes
Your insurance policy is a legally binding contract that requires the company act in “good faith” when handling your claims. If an insurer fails to do so, you have the right to hold the company accountable by filing a legal claim. Some actions taken by insurers that can be in “bad faith” include:
- Not investigating a claim in a thorough and prompt manner;
- Failing to pay out the full value of a valid claim;
- Purposely making unreasonably low settlement offers;
- Denying a valid claim;
- Unreasonably delaying payment of a claim; and
- Fraudulently denying coverage.
Whether you make a claim for auto insurance, homeowners insurance, disability insurance, life or other insurance, you deserve to have your claim properly investigated and paid. If you believe your insurer has acted in bad faith, you should never delay in discussing your situation with our skilled Ocala insurance disputes lawyer who can advise you of your legal rights.
We can communicate with your insurance company on your behalf
Following a claim, your insurance adjuster will likely contact you to get basic information regarding the incident that caused your injury or property damage. In addition, your adjuster may ask you to make a recorded statement regarding your accident. Though making such a statement may seem harmless to you, your insurance company can use anything you say to try to limit your payout. At times, seemingly innocuous or offhand comments can be misconstrued or used by an insurer to argue that your injuries or property damage is not as serious as you claim.
Before you make any recorded statement, you should consult with an lawyer who knows how to communicate with insurance companies. Even if you have already made a statement, we can negotiate with your insurer, with your comments in mind, to argue for the maximum payout that you deserve.
