What To Do When Insurance Won’t Pay

Although we never want to face the unfortunate event of being in an accident, suffering from an injury, or experiencing any other catastrophic event that requires filing an insurance claim, the reality is this situation can happen to anyone. Not only can the injury or incident be stressful, the act of filing the claim and attempting to get your fair payment can be stressful as well. You should not face undue stress when trying to receive the compensation you deserve. However, in some instances insurance companies will try to refuse to pay you a dime or will try to underpay you. If you are facing this situation, you might not know what to do. In fact, insurance companies will prey upon the fact that the average consumer doesn’t know their rights and doesn’t know what to do if they are being taken advantage of.

At the Andry Law, LLC, we fight for you. We are on the side of the people, and our goal is to provide you with the resources and help you need to receive fair compensation in the case of an injury or accident. If you are looking for a trusted attorney in the Gulf South, you have come to the right place. Contact us to discuss your case and read on for tips on what to do when insurance won’t pay.

Educate Yourself & Prepare Yourself

The first thing you should do when you believe you are not being paid fairly by an insurance company is to educate yourself on your consumer rights. You need to understand exactly what is covered and what steps you should take to file a claim properly. Feel free to seek free legal advice from our team during this step.

Not only do you need to educate yourself on what your rights are, you need to prepare yourself for the battle ahead. Keep track of everything. Document everything. Important records to keep include receipts and proof of any sort of medical attention you received due to the accident or injury. In the world of smartphones, it is always advisable to take photos of anything that might help your case later. This is particularly helpful in the case of auto accidents. You can never have too much documentation, but you can definitely have too little.

Don’t Give In To Bullying

Sadly, a lot of insurance adjusters will do their best to bully you. They may try to pressure you into settling for less than you deserve. Be wary about signing anything they ask you to sign without consulting with an attorney first. It will be easier to fight for fair compensation if you have not signed away your rights to anything. When in doubt, have an attorney look over anything you need to sign.
