You get into a car accident where you injure your neck. You go to your doctor who tells you it’s just whiplash. You go through the necessary steps of making a claim with the insurance company. A few weeks later, you find out that your claim was denied. Why was it denied? And what are your next steps?
There can be various reasons why your insurance company had denied your claim. But remember that you don’t have to take no for an answer. You do have the chance to challenge the decision. But don’t do it alone! First, call the Law Offices of Anthony Carbone, PC. Our personal injury attorney has been fighting the insurance companies for the last 26 years.
But before calling us, make sure you know the real reason behind the denial. Some examples of a denied claim include:
- You didn’t have the proper coverage for the accident. For example, you don’t have collision coverage on your vehicle and the accident falls under that category.
- Your coverage has lapsed because you failed to pay the premium.
- You bought a new car yet failed to add the car to your policy.
- You’re not named on the policy. For example, you were driving your parents’ car at the time of the accident.
There are many methods you can go through in order to fight the denial. You can contact the company to dispute the decision, or appeal to the state insurance commissioner. But the one thing you should not do is fight this alone.
