Insurance Claims

Insurance Claims

At Sullivan and Sullivan LLP, our insurance claim attorneys have extensive experience helping clients recover the insurance benefits to which they are entitled.

Your insurance company has substantial resources to hire experts to protect their interests in denying your claim. Our law firm has the resources to retain experts to honestly assess your claim and ensure that you have a level playing field when fighting your own insurance company.

Insurance claims are a notice for reimbursement from an insurance company when the insured has suffered a loss that is covered under the insurance policy. Insurance companies cannot refuse to pay a customer’s claim without “reasonable justification.” This means that an insurance company must engage in a reasonable investigation and pay legitimate claims on time. If an insurance company fails to handle its customer’s claim properly, it may be held accountable for resulting economic losses, including lost wages, interest on money the insured borrowed to cover expenses while insurance benefits were wrongfully withheld, and loss due to damaged credit.

Anyone who has ever filed a claim with an insurance company knows what a nightmare dealing with an insurance company can be. If you have to make a claim, there is a good chance that you will get involved in a dispute with your insurance company. Insurance disputes are just part of making an insurance claim. The insurance company is not in the business of paying claims. Many insurance companies train their adjusters to offer as little as possible for your claim in order to maximize the insurance company’s profits. Their primary goal is profitability, not whether your claim is being handled fairly or properly. To them your claim is just one of many in a long line of claims being made.

Some of the types of claims we can assist our clients with include uninsured or underinsured motorist claims, personal injury protection claims, life insurance claims, property and casualty claims, foundation warranty claims, homeowner and fire insurance claims.

We understand that insurance disputes can cause serious financial and emotional harm to the injured person and their family. Let a knowledgeable injury lawyer help you and your family handle these hardships. At Sullivan and Sullivan LLP we will stand up to insurance companies that improperly deny claims and ensure that your legal rights are respected.
