Your car was stolen several weeks ago and your insurance company still hasn't paid your stolen auto claim. What can you do?
Insurance companies make big profits every year because they specialize in either denying or underpaying insurance claims. In the case with a stolen car insurance claim, the insurance company will investigate your stolen auto claim because it may suspect that you were probably involved in the theft of your own car. Because of this, the insurance company may launch its own investigation into your personal and financial affairs which could take several months. They may request to see your bank statements and also pull your credit history in an attempt to gather evidence of financial hardship as proof that you could no longer afford your car payments and therefore participated in the theft of your own auto. This is also true when your stolen car is later recovered damaged or with missing parts. As part of their investigation, they may also request to take your examination under oath or a sworn statement.
Your car was stolen several months ago and the insurance company has not paid for the claim. You need to buy a new car, but you're stuck making monthly car payments on your stolen car until the insurance company decides to pay. You cant afford two monthly car payments at the same time, what can you do?
In order to protect your credit history, it is best to continue making car payments on your stolen auto until the insurance company pays your creditor for the value of your stolen car. If you had no choice, but to purchase a new car and could not afford to make payments at the same time on your stolen car and your credit was damaged as a sole result of your insurance company's denial of your stolen auto claim, you may have an insurance bad faith case. For a free consultation and case evaluation, please contact our office to discuss your situation in more detail.
Your insurance company underpaid your stolen car claim, what can you do?
