Why Would An Insurance Company Deny An Accident Claim?
We are not saying that all insurance companies are evil. Insurance companies provide a valuable service. Insurance companies benefit us by offering a variety of coverages in addition to automobile insurance, such as health insurance, life insurance, and disability insurance.
Unfortunately, insurance companies are in business to make a profit. In order to protect its profit margin, an insurance company often takes whatever action necessary to lower the amount paid on an accident claim. For the accident victim, this may feel unfair or unethical. For the insurance company, is it simply a business decision.
An insurance company can deny an accident claim, even if the claim is valid. The insurance company may use a variety of arguments to allege it is not liable for your damages. The most common reason an insurance company denies an accident claim is due to a dispute regarding fault.
For example, the insurance company may claim that a motorcyclist was speeding at the time its insured turned left in front of the motorcyclist. Therefore, it is not liable for the full amount of the motorcyclist’s damage because the rider is partly to blame for the collision.
What Should I Do If An Insurance Company Denies My
In order to recover damages for an accident claim, you must be able to prove that the other driver was at fault for the collision. If the insurance company believes it can successfully argue its insured was not at fault for the crash, it will deny the accident claim. The best option at that point is for you to consult with a New Orleans accident attorney. The insurance company can drag out a claim until the deadline for filing a personal injury lawsuit expires. At this point, you are unable to pursue a claim.
Our personal injury attorneys handle a variety of traffic accident cases. We will perform an independent accident investigation to identify, gather, and preserve key evidence to prove the other driver is liable for the collision. If the case requires it, we can retain experts who can recreate the accident to show who caused the collision.
