Can I Sue an Insurance Company for Not Paying My Claim?

Suing an insurance company after an accident

Your automobile insurance policy is an agreement between you and your insurance company. You agree to pay the premiums and your insurance company agrees to pay for losses you suffer in accidents.

Unfortunately, while you may be faithful in making your payments year after year, many insurance companies fail to uphold their side of the agreement. It gets even more complicated when someone else is responsible for your accident and your injuries. You may need to file a lawsuit to obtain the benefits you are owed; and you can with the help of a lawyer.

Do Not Assume Insurance Companies Are On Your Side

If you think you are getting the runaround from an insurer, contact an experienced motor vehicle accident attorney at the law firm of Heller & Heller, P.A. With two office locations in Coral Springs and Boca Raton, we assist car accident clients throughout South Florida.

Insurance companies will try to get you to settle your insurance claim for as little money as possible. Whether it is your own insurer or the insurer that represents the driver who caused your injuries, they both want you to just go away.

Signs That It Is Time to Seek Legal Help

Following are common signs that something is amiss with your personal injury claim:

  • The insurance company’s attorney contacts you
  • You receive a settlement offer before you are fully recovered from your accident
  • You receive a settlement offer that is much lower than you think you deserve
  • The insurance or claims adjuster keeps giving you excuses why your claim is not proceeding
  • You believe your claim was wrongfully denied

It is better to be safe than sorry. Contacting a car accident lawyer right after a collision can save you a lot of time and trouble. Don’t take our word for it, read what past clients have to say.
