Why Do Insurance Claims get Denied?
There are various reasons that an insurance claim may be denied. However, the reason your claim is denied will determine your likelihood of collecting on that denied claim. Furthermore, reasons the insurance claims get denied include:
• The adjuster thinks the claim is false or untrue
• Failure to pay premiums
• Policy Exclusions
• Policyholder didn’t notify the insurer in time
Options for Denied Insurance Claims
When you receive a denied insurance claim, it can be devastating and incredibly frightening. We rely on our insurance companies to help us through tough times – that’s why we pay premiums. However, your options depend on the reason your claim was denied. If you think your claim has been wrongfully denied, there are a few options. First, you can accept the denial. If the claim was denied due to policy exclusions or a policy lapse, you may not have a very good chance and recovering benefits. Your second option is to fight the claim yourself, which may prove ineffective without the help of a legal professional. Lastly, you can choose to hire an experienced lawyer to take on the insurance company and fight for what you deserve. Here are the basic steps to challenging any denied claim:
• First, we send a demand letter to make it known that you’re not going to accept the denial and make demands for what you’re owned under your policy.
• Next, we’ll follow any and all steps of the insurance companies appeal process.
• If the appeal is still denied, that’s when we consider filing a lawsuit to recover what your policy entitles you to.
