Why Might an Insurance Company Dispute a Claim?
You may assume that since you paid for your insurance and kept up with the premiums, your insurance company will take your side and want to help you if you need to file a claim. Unfortunately, many insurance companies let their clients down when they need them the most. Insurance companies are often fast to deny your insurance claim in Florida. As for-profit organizations, insurance companies care more about their bottom lines than their clients. They may give many reasons for denying or disputing a claim, such as:
- Not a covered event
- Incorrect type of coverage
- Inadequate coverage
- Not enough supporting evidence
- Failure to mitigate losses
- Misinterpretation of the policy’s terms
- Missed deadline or filing requirement
You may run into an insurance dispute during a homeowners, business, hurricane, flood, fire, automobile or another type of claim in Florida. In these situations, hiring an attorney can help you stand up for your rights and negotiate for fair financial compensation. An attorney will know how to get the results that you deserve using proven legal tactics, even if the insurance company is treating your claim in bad faith.
What Is Insurance Bad Faith in Florida?
Insurance companies have a legal responsibility to handle claims in good faith. This means in an honest attempt to resolve legal disputes according to the terms of the policy and the language of the law. Unfortunately, many insurance companies use dishonest and even illegal tactics to try to diminish the amount that they have to pay clients. This is known as insurance bad faith, and it may be used against you to protect the insurance company’s profitability.
Common examples of insurance bad faith in Florida are failing to adequately investigate a claim, delaying a payout, rejecting a valid claim and refusing to offer fair compensation. If you have reason to believe that your insurance company is treating your case in bad faith, contact an attorney from Williams Law, P.A. for assistance.
