Insurance Coverage Dispute
We often hear from clients after their insurance company refuses to pay their claim. It happens with motor vehicle accident injuries, cases of chemical exposure, property damage from natural disasters, and defective products or medicines.
Carriers base refusals on the findings of their own doctor’s report, or they will downgrade the severity of the injury you reported to them.
Either way, the refusal is infuriating to anyone coping with a serious injury. Why do we pay for insurance if the insurance doesn’t really insure us?
Rejected Insurance Claims Attorneys for Lake Charles
Louisiana law says that insurance companies are obliged to handle claims promptly, reasonably, and in good faith. When a company rejects valid claims for injuries clearly covered in the policy, that is bad faith, and policy holders can bring a civil action against that company.
