How Do I Appeal an Insurance Claim Denial?

If you have filed for an insurance claim and received a denial letter in the mail, it is understandable that you may be feeling overwhelmed and discouraged. If you are sure that you deserve compensation for damages, you may have the option to appeal your claim.

Below are three steps to take after receiving a notice of your claim denial:

  • Step One: Review your claim to ensure there are no errors or ways to improve it
  • Step Two: Think about the option of hiring an insurance adjuster to get an independent appraisal
  • Step Three: If you are unable to reach an agreement with your home insurance company, contact a Fort Lauderdale insurance attorney to assist you

Understanding How Insurance Companies Operate

No matter what type of insurance policy you purchase, you are entitled to the full benefits of the policy if you have a covered claim. If your claim is denied, you have the right to challenge that denial in a court of law. Insurance companies are generally held to the standard of what a reasonable insurance company would do under the same circumstances. Your situation will first be surveyed by a claims adjuster. Remember, this adjuster is NOT on your side.

During their investigation, they may:

  • Make you feel as if their only allegiance is to you
  • Offer you a quick and easy settlement before you know the full extent of your damages or injuries
  • Make you sign a medical release allowing them to look into your entire medical history
  • Ask you to give them a recorded statement in order to "lock in" your testimony

Don't fall into the insurance company's trap! If you were injured or your loved one was killed in a serious accident resulting from someone's negligence or misconduct, you are legally entitled to restitution for any injuries and losses you sustained.
