When you file an injury claim, it’s reasonable to expect the insurance company to pay you compensation. However, insurance companies don’t always operate the way they’re supposed to. These are what we call disputed insurance claims. The attorneys at Certa Law Group want to help make sure you’re being treated fairly. Contact our office today.
Disputed Insurance Claims | Common Examples
Car accidents, pedestrian accidents, truck accidents, motorcycle accidents, and workplace accidents are the claims most commonly disputed. An Edmonds insurance claim dispute lawyer can help accident victims regardless of whether they’re still receiving medical treatment. Your lawyer can communicate with the insurance company with you on your behalf. You can focus on getting better while we talk to the insurance company about your injuries and your medical bills. Our job isn’t over when your medical treatment ends. We help protect your rights and ensure that you’re treated fairly by the insurance company.
Types of Insurance Claims
There are two main types of insurance claims: first party and third party. A first party claim is insurance that you have that covers your property. For example, if you own a home and have homeowner’s insurance and you need to make a claim, it is a first party claim. Your auto insurance policy is, for you, a first party insurance coverage. If you filed a claim with your own policy, it would be a first party claim. The insurance company has an obligation to act in good faith. That includes timely communication, completing their investigation within 30 days, and providing a timely payment on the claim. Third party insurance means the policy belongs to another person or business besides you. If you’re in a car accident and you file a claim with the other insurance company, that is a third-party claim.
