You have a right to appeal if your claim is denied

There are some things that your car insurance company may not want you to know, like the fact that you can fight a denied claim or that it can attempt to drag out a claim to get you to forget about it.

The reality is that every insurance company agrees, in good faith, that it will pay a claim if the time comes. However, if you get hurt and your insurance company doesn't want to pay, that can be a significant problem.

Why would a company drag out the claims process?

The typical reason is to avoid paying you any of the benefits it's supposed to provide. The company may delay the processing of the claim as long as it can before denying that you were hurt in an accident. The company may state that it can defend its position, too. The reality is that these are just tactics that make the claims process more difficult for you, but you shouldn't let up.

If the company outright denies your claim, you do have a right to appeal that decision. These companies don't want to pay out on claims, so they look for reasons to deny yours. However, the reality is that they do have to pay out for a legitimate claim. If yours is denied despite meeting the requirements to obtain your benefits, then you should appeal and file a lawsuit against the company. A denial doesn't have to be the final answer.
