Insurance Company Tactics
Our expertise comes in examining exclusions, coverage concerns, and insurance policies. We know unscrupulous tactics of insurance agencies trying to minimize payments made on claims - or avoiding payment altogether - to maximize their profits at property owner's expense. Here are some common insurance company tactics used to make damage claim payouts challenging:
- Deny that coverage exists.
- Deny a claim because it is partly excluded under your policy.
- Cause unnecessary delays in claim processing, payment, or adjustment.
- Make false or misleading statements to you.
- Undervalue property or offer lowball payments and estimates.
- Discourage you from seeking an attorney to review your claim denial.
- Send payments labeled "final" or "full" even though you are eligible for additional benefits.
Handling problems with an insurance carrier by yourself is difficult and time consuming. Your ability to rebuild depends greatly on the insurance money if you don't have money saved.
