Has your claim been denied and you’re not sure what to do now? Once an insurance company denies your claim, you only have two options: You can either walk away, forget about the claim, and move on with your life as best as you can, or you need to go see a lawyer who has experience in insurance claims litigation.
Why do you need an attorney? Simply put, because you’re rarely going to change an insurance company’s mind by calling them or responding to their denial letter. In order to get a change in their decision, it’ll usually require court action.
If you consult with an attorney who is experienced in dealing with insurance claims and, in his or her opinion, you have a valid claim, then the next step would be to file a lawsuit against the insurance company.
Once that lawsuit gets filed and served to the insurance company, the company typically has 20 days to respond to the lawsuit. Usually, you will receive a form response, and the case will continue into what’s called “discovery,” in which we will have the opportunity to ask you and the insurance company some questions about the claim.
A great majority of cases resolve and settle along that stretch of discovery before going to trial. If your claim has been denied and you’re wanting more information about your options, contact J.P. today.
