Did Your Insurance Company Deny Your Claim?
You’ve spent years paying insurance premiums in the event of a potential fire or other accident. But now your insurance company is making it difficult to file a claim or is forcing you into an intimidating claims process. You need to contact a law firm that has experience dealing with insurance companies. Call Akers Law. We regularly handle these types of claims and are well-versed in dealing with insurance companies.
Whether homeowners, life, disability, health, commercial or auto, it is important to remember that your insurance policy is a contract between you and your provider. When you paid your premiums, your insurance company made certain promises in exchange for your money. Unfortunately, insurance companies do not always live up to their end of the bargain and may underpay or deny your valid claim.
There is certainly nothing wrong with insurance companies making a profit. However, insurers absolutely should not profit at the expense of their policyholders by refusing to pay legitimate claims. While some claim denials may be legitimate based on the contract with your insurance provider, sometimes insurance companies incorrectly deny you the compensation you are due.
If your insurance company is refusing to pay a valid claim, call our office in Charleston at 304-720-1422 for a free consultation. Akers Law Offices can help you decide whether your insurer has committed an act of bad faith or otherwise improperly denied your claim and help you understand your options.
