How an Insurance Claim Lawyer Can Help
In most situations, an insurance claim lawyer is contacted after a claim is denied. The first step that your lawyer will take is to review your policy to determine your coverage and required payments your carrier is supposed to provide.
Next, they will also review the denial letter and explain the rationale the insurance company is using for its denial.
Your insurance claim lawyer may conduct an investigation into your claim. Your lawyer can review relevant documents, including previous home inspections, inventories, surveillance footage, medical reports and police reports. This investigation can help identify documents and information that can help support your claim.
Experienced insurance claim attorneys know that insurance companies are for-profit businesses. Their interest is to avoid paying on claims or minimizing the payout so that they can be as profitable as possible.
They may claim that you intentionally caused damage or that some other exceptions were present in order to avoid honoring the claim. For example, you may make a claim for hail damage that was caused by a recent storm, but the insurance company may allege that the damage was due to normal wear and tear or your neglect to replace the roof sooner.
However, insurance companies owe a legal duty to their insured. If they wrongly deny a claim, your lawyer can determine if there is an additional cause of action that you can make against your insurance claim for conducting bad faith practices.
Beard & Beard can handle communication with the insurance company so that you do not have to deal with this frustrating aspect of the claim. You will have the peace of mind of knowing that a professional is on your side.
