WHY DO INSURANCE COMPANIES DENY CLAIMS?
The most common reason why insurance claims are denied is that most lawyers do not try cases, and the insurance companies know that. That is why you need a personal injury lawyer like Richard A. Bokor who has tried cases. Richard has a reputation for taking insurance disputes to trial, so your claim is less likely to be denied, and you are more likely to win a settlement.
HOW LONG CAN AN INSURANCE COMPANY TAKE TO PAY MY CLAIM?
Insurance companies have until the statute of limitations runs out, which is typically four years. Most insurance companies do not want to operate in bad faith, and they will pay in a timely manner. If the insurance company does not pay or denies your claim, your personal injury lawyer can file a lawsuit on your behalf to have the claim settled. Depending on the insurance company’s response, your lawyer may opt to take your lawsuit to court before a jury and/or a judge.
Many times, fees are assessed against the insurance company for failure to pay a claim in a timely manner. In these instances, your lawyer will usually give you credit for any fees obtained by court order and your obligation for fees may be greatly or totally diminished.
