Navigating the complexities of an insurance dispute often causes headaches for many of our clients, but consulting experienced insurance attorneys can help. The attorneys at Adams Law Firm have years of experience in helping clients who have had issues dealing with every type of insurance company - whether it's life, health, home, or auto.
When a dispute with an insurance company arises, unfortunately the playing field is usually tilted against individuals and families. Families can be overwhelmed just trying to get an insurance company to pay for necessary medical treatment. If you're considering pursuing legal action after getting the brush from your insurance company, it's important to consult an experienced attorney who can guide you through the stresses and complications of filing a claim.
If you choose to consult an attorney, he/she will be able to help you compile the records and documentation necessary to build a strong foundation for your case, as well as provide invaluable insight and guidance should your case go to trial. It's also important to keep in mind that time periods - or statutes of limitations - can sometimes apply to these claims, so if you are feeling a bit overwhelmed, call an attorney as soon as possible.
Navigating an Insurance Dispute
A question we often get is: “What can I do to make the insurance company pay this claim?” Here are some other things to keep in mind when approaching a dispute with an insurance company:
- Document everything and keep good records. Keep detailed notes of phone calls – who you spoke to, when, and what was said. It's also important to keep copies of every correspondence with the insurance company - whether it's a letter or an email.
- Consult an expert. The procedural requirements for some cases can be more complicated. For example, dealing with ERISA (Employee Retirement Income Security Act) plans is more complex and often requires the formal exhaustion of claims as required by the insurance company plan documents. Consulting an expert law firm, like Adams Law Firm, will help give you the support you need.
- Take advantage of all resources available to you. In Georgia, complaints about insurance company practices can be filed with the Office of Insurance and Safety Fire Commissioner.
