Signs the Insurance Company is Playing Games with Your Claim

It is a misconception that insurance companies are on the side of victims’ well-being. Insurance companies have been very successful in marketing themselves as a caring advocate and supporter of their policyholders when in fact, they are only concerned with their bottom line and reducing or eliminating any payments that are made to claimants. If you have been injured in the Phoenix car accident and you are struggling with your claim and your interactions with the insurance company, connecting with a Phoenix car accident attorney will help you get things straightened out and on the right track.

How Can You Tell When the Insurance Company is Being Unfair with You

Insurance companies thrive on being difficult and giving claimants the run-around. Causing unnecessary stress is one of their tactics to try to get claimants so frustrated with the process that they give up their claim or settle for much less than they deserve. Your Arizona car accident attorney understands these deceitful strategies and knows how to combat them and fight on your behalf for the best outcome possible.

Some of the ways that insurance companies can be difficult to deal with are by denying coverage to valid claims without justification, trying to low-ball claimants with reduced settlements, losing documentation, or not responding properly and communicating in a timely manner. When an agent is successful in paying less than a claim is worth or getting away with not paying for a legitimate claim, that money that should go to a victim is money the insurance company can keep.

Under the law, when an insurance company is not acting in good faith or be responsible regarding their interactions with you, that may potentially mean that you have just cause to bring an Arizona bad faith claim against them. An attorney is going to understand when the insurance company is acting in a way that would be deemed “bad faith.” It could be through any of the following or a combination of some of the following:

  • an unnecessarily extended investigation
  • not providing you with a portion of the payment in advance to help you with your mounting costs
  • Not covering medical much-needed medical treatment
  • Losing documentation or asking you to re-submit documentation
