We understand what our client is enduring when he/she pays the insurance premium in full and expects that the insurance company will follow its policy and act in good faith.
Do you think your insurance company is not honoring your insurance claim and offering you far less than what you deserve? Disputes and allegations arise once your insurance company denies a valid claim without any lawful reason.
Here at Conflict Free Resolutions, we make sure that no insurance company illegitimately denies your insurance claim and your right to be paid in full or makes you settle for far less than what your case is worth. We are on your side, and we will fight until the end to ensure you receive the benefits you deserve.
When a claim is denied, that burden eventually lies on the policyholder. For these individuals, it is essential to realize that at this point, they need an attorney by their side who can help recover the compensation from the insurance company to which they are legally entitled by law.
What is an insurance attorney? What is an attorney entitled to do when you are falsely denied compensation for your claim?
An insurance lawyer can always advise and guide you if there is a question about your policy, if you have any doubt about whether your insurance company is treating you justly. He can also represent you in court or in a mediation or arbitration if you have appropriate evidence that your insurance company is not compensating you correctly according to the insurance policy.
Insurance lawyers are also equipped to deal with any insurance companies that represent other parties if there has been any kind of accident and the party that injured you has insurance coverage.
An insurance attorney is a lawyer who handles lawful matters related to insurance laws and required insurance regulations. Insurance law includes issues and disputes arising from the sale, use, and payment of insurance policies, including insurance bad faith and insurance fraud.
In broader terms, there are two main types of insurance attorneys. The first type is the insurance coverage attorney, and the other type is the insurance defense attorney. Insurance coverage attorneys typically focus on insurance contracts and assess what is covered under a given insurance policy and up to what amount. Insurance defense attorneys commonly focus on the defense of insurance companies when there is a dispute about how much the insurance company is being asked to pay under a specific policy.
How Do I Know If I Need an Insurance Lawyer to File a Legitimate Claim?
For instance, you have suffered a huge loss from fire, theft, or some other calamity, and you have filed an insurance claim with your insurance company. You are not exactly sure what your rights are and what you are entitled to receive, and you are concerned about trusting your insurance company and whether you, as a policyholder, are going to receive compensation in full.
Truthfully speaking, you should be concerned. Your insurance company's interests that may naturally cost them an enormous amount of money are always in a natural conflict, but understanding and considering the coverage that you are entitled to in your insurance policy can be of help.
You want a maximum payout that can be offered to you for covering your loss, whereas your insurer wants to offer you a minimum. An insurance claim is a business negotiation, in pure and simple terms. So even though you invested a good amount in paying your insurance premium for coverage and good claim service, your insurer may still limit your payout. In this instance, you may need professional help and it is vital to contact your insurance attorney to inquire and determine if you can file a claim against your insurer.
You may require an insurance attorney if:
Your insurance company (auto, health, homeowners, life, disability, business interruption, etc.) isn’t covering something they should or are entitled to cover or is otherwise being unjust and not offering you what you deserve.
You were in an accident involving someone else and their insurance company isn’t paying you in full.
You’re not capable of obtaining the appropriate payments from an insurance company due for any reason.
The life insurance company is not paying out after a specific family member’s death.
How Much Does an Insurance Attorney Cost in New Orleans?
Lawyers take various approaches to how they bill and how much they charge, but often insurance attorneys charge by the hour.
What Should I Expect When Working with an Insurance Attorney?
Your insurance attorney should be able to understand your agreement with your insurance agency. They should advise you on whether the insurance company is acting according to your agreement and treating you fairly, as well as ensure that the insurance company has not manipulated the facts of your claim.
If they are acting unfairly and have informed you that your losses are not as substantial as they are claimed to be and you are being taken advantage of due to unfair and unlawful means, your insurance attorney can guide you through the litigation process and try to resolve the matter with a settlement or have the insurance company pay you the damages that they are required to pay.
An insurance attorney will know technical best practices and will search for loopholes in your insurance policy and the specifications of the law so that you are well represented and are given compensation for injuries and damages.
Many policyholders don’t think there is anything they can do or are entitled to do if their insurance claim is denied. Also, insurers occasionally tend to incorrectly assign fault to policyholders to avoid payment and to increase premiums.
No question asked that these are tough and strenuous cases, but you do not have to be frightened or overwhelmed by the insurance giants and their mountains of paperwork that they come at you with.
Our attorneys have extensive experience in handling insurance dispute claims and are well versed in handling the strategies used by insurers to avoid fair payments. Our attorneys at Conflict Free Resolutions can examine your insurance policy and work with you to seek fair compensation for you insurance loss.
