Effective Steps To Communicate With Your Insurance Company

You want your insurance company to work hard for you, but that doesn't always happen by itself. If you are in the process of filing an insurance claim, we here at MAS Law Firm can guide you through the process. We want you to know there are some measures you can take to help things go smoothly.

The first thing you can do is continually touch base with your insurer. Calling in every few days to check on the status of your claim helps keep matters on course. This will also grant opportunities to provide anything that your insurer needs, without having to wait for them to ask for it. It is important to document any of your conversations and their outcomes, as this will prove your efforts if they attempt to delay your claim.

How To Stand Your Ground Against Your Insurer

If things are not going how you hoped, if the process is taking longer than you imagined, or if your insurer isn't offering a fair payout for your damages, do not be afraid to voice your concerns. There are times where speaking out can fix these issues. If you aren't making progress with your representative, ask for a supervisor. It is beneficial to remain calm and polite. You may need an attorney to help you obtain the compensation you are owed.

Basic Strategy Tips For The Policyholder

With most insurance policies, you need to report a loss within 60 to 90 days, and up to a year for damages. The sooner the better. Delaying the reporting of a claim can serve as the basis for a denial of coverage. During your claims process, if your insurer presents you with a release, do not sign it without having an attorney review it first. Releases often remove the burden of responsibility from the insurer, leaving you with most of the bill. Remember, insurers will likely lowball you with their first offer. We can help you negotiate for a fair amount.
