Philadelphia Insurance Denial Lawyers
Philadelphia Insurance Denial Lawyers
The average American carries insurance for the most important things in their life. Health, life, and home insurance are just a few examples. The goal of insurance is protection. Protection against financial ruin if the something should have to you, your family, or your property. Even in the event that someone sues you in your professional capacity, insurance is there to protect.
Insurance companies are there for emergencies, but they often fall through. For small issues, the company may be friendly and easy to deal with. There are times, however, when insurance companies will refuse to pay your insurance claims. An insurance denial attorney can help you fight for the money that you deserve. The professionals at Freundlich & Littman, LLC will fight to make sure that you receive all the insurance benefits that your insurance company promised.
What Do I Do About It?
All insurance companies are set up differently. Generally, you will file your initial claim either online or on the phone. It may be a good idea to talk to someone on the phone if the situation is complex. You will be able to talk to a live person. Write down their names, and write down exactly what they said just in case you rely on their bad advice to your detriment. After the company processes your initial claim, they will send you a letter, either denying or approving your claim. If you receive an insurance denial, there are certain things to do to be in the best situation for an appeal.
First, keep documents of everything. The more emails, mailings, or forms you keep on file, the better. If you have everything organized, it will be easier to appeal to navigate through the insurance process. Keep a log of when you called your insurance company.
A phone call to an insurance company representative may be all it takes to fix the situation. As annoying as it may seem, it may only be a small error which caused the insurance denial. If you cannot check your paperwork online, call the representative to verify that all your basic demographic information is correct.
Do not agree to anything that you are unsure or uncomfortable with. If your insurance is fighting you, they may send an insurance adjuster or representative to talk to you. Their job is to reach a settlement. Do not settle for an amount that will not cover all your expenses or damages, especially if your policy states otherwise. Call your legal counsel before agreeing to an amount lower than what you need.
Do I Need An Attorney?
Most insurance companies have their own internal appeal process. You have the option to go directly through that process with or without legal representation. Be cautious of the process, as insurances are businesses. It may be a simple matter. A quick telephone call may resolve the issue.
On the other hand, your circumstance may complicate the denial. If your house catches fire during a bout of extreme weather, the cost of repairs may be high. In that situation, you will be understandably tired and frustrated after an emotionally exhausting ordeal. The worst thing would be a denial of your claim or be receiving a payout far less than what you need to cover everything.

We fight to make sure that your insurance company pays you all the money that promised under your policy. Contact us today to schedule a free consultation.
