Months and months have passed since Hurricane Sandy destroyed countless homes and businesses on the East Coast, yet many business owners are still left struggling to receive claim payouts from their insurance policies. Sadly, many homeowners and business owners received claim denials from their insurers that said that the policies didn’t cover water damage. Unfortunately, many insurers have manipulated the policy language in their favor so that they can save money instead of helping their clients.
If you received a claim denial for your commercial insurance claim, don’t accept the denial without asking the insurance company for an explanation. Ask them to put the reason in writing and let them know that you would like to appeal their decision. If you haven’t been in contact with an attorney before now, now is the time to speak with a skilled insurance claim attorney.
A qualified insurance litigation lawyer can review the text of your policy to see if the denial was justified. Once an attorney looks into your matter and determines that you have a valid claim, your attorney can contact the insurance company on your behalf to get you the claim payout you deserve.
Working with an insurance lawyer is beneficial for several reasons:
- An attorney carries more weight and shows the insurer you are serious and not going away easily.
- The insurance company can’t get away with bad faith practices when you have a skilled attorney on your side.
- An insurance lawyer can help you fight fair to get your unjust denial overturned.
