If you have been in a car wreck and your insurance claim has been denied, by your insurance company or the other driver’s, it is not “case closed”. You can still pursue compensation from the insurance company for your injuries.
It starts with an appeal.
Talk to an experienced car accident attorney like Laurie Robbins before you start the appeals process. Your attorney will review your denial letter and determine the best approach.
You are not required to have an attorney, but the insurance company will take you more seriously if you have legal representation, so your chance of success is much greater and you are more likely to get a fair settlement offer in a reasonable amount of time.
Bad Faith Insurance Claims Denial
Although it may seem like it, the insurance company does not call all the shots. Insurance companies are required to follow rules, and it’s often up to injury victims like you to hold them to it. They will often try to get out of paying by denying legitimate claims and if you sit back and take it, they get away with it.
Among the many requirements, the insurance company must:
- Properly investigate your claim
- Communicate clearly with you throughout the claims process
- Tell you why your claim was denied
If the insurance company has broken the law in Georgia, Attorney Laurie Robbins can include that point in the initial appeal letter and the insurance company may reverse its decision quickly.
If negotiation with the insurance company fails, you can still file a lawsuit. If you sue, your case may end in a favorable settlement at any point. Most cases are resolved by a settlement, but if the insurance company is determined to fight, you need an experienced car accident trial attorney who has prepared your case to go to trial from the very beginning.
