Insurance companies have certain responsibilities when processing claims
When you have filed a claim with an insurance company, the company is obligated to be aware of it, to respond to inquiries and to process it in good faith. There are specific time periods set for evaluation of a claim and damages and compensation. If you feel the insurance company is ignoring you or not providing information or payment in a timely manner, please contact our office for assistance with your dispute.
Talk to us before you talk to the insurance company
Whether your claim is for personal injury or for property damage, one of the most important pieces of information to remember is the insurance company is concerned about its best interests rather than yours. The company is working toward quick settlement with minimal payout.
You may be strongly encouraged, by the insurance company, to settle early without proper treatment or representation. Remember that property damage and bodily injury are two separate claims. Don't settle your personal injury claims prematurely for fear that you are delaying the repair or replacement of your vehicle. As they are separate, you should settle the property damage claim and specifically reserve your rights to pursue your personal injury claim at a later date. Additionally, how you respond to the company's tactics and what you say may jeopardize your claim. By contacting the law office of Duncan & Simon, our experienced attorneys can work on your behalf.
The attorneys at Duncan & Simon will be your representative in dealing with the insurance company, so all communication regarding your claim will be directed to us. This allows you to focus on your recovery without the anxiety of negotiating for your benefits. And should the time come where you need to make a statement, our lawyers will guide you in determining what is appropriate and beneficial to your case.
