“He clothes his hands with lightning and commands it to strike its mark.” Job 36:32
As someone who has an insurance policy, you invest a good amount of money with the hope and trust that you will be covered in the event disaster strikes. You would likely be frustrated, upset, and worried if when that disaster does strike, your insurance company isn’t there for you. Whether it be through a delayed claim, a partial payment, or an outright denial, a dispute with an insurance company is a burdensome, additional hurdle during an already vulnerable and difficult time.
This is why it’s important to consult with an experienced insurance attorney when you experience a disruption with your insurer. The right attorney will be confident in going up against the big insurance companies and fighting for you so that you can receive the compensation you deserve.
So, how do insurance attorneys fight big insurance companies for their clients? Read more below.
Reviewing the documents and policy
One of the first steps in the insurance dispute process includes a review of your documents. Typically, your attorney will request to see your insurance policy and will examine it thoroughly before proceeding with the claim. This is a vital step in ensuring that you do in fact have a solid case against the insurance company.
Investigating the claim
Next, your attorney will ask to review the evidence you have for your claim. For example, if you filed a claim with your insurer for damage to your home, you may need to show your attorney photographs of the damage, bills related to the damage, an inventory list, and even receipts. This is a critical step in the attorney’s process of fighting the insurer, along with making sure that the damage you’ve reported is covered in your policy.
Proceeding with the lawsuit
Once your attorney has reviewed your policy, additional documents, and evidence to determine if your claim is valid, they will usually go forth with filing the lawsuit. Many lawsuits in insurance disputes result in settlements and negotiations, but occasionally, the case will go to trial if a settlement cannot be reached that satisfies both parties.
Hiring an experienced insurance attorney
Taking on a large insurance company may understandably seem like a daunting task, which is why you’ll need an experienced insurance attorney. An attorney with the appropriate experience and a history of successful claims is your best avenue to success and winning the compensation you deserve. Plus, you’ll have someone to guide you through the process every step of the way.
