Why the Insurance Company Will Likely Deny Your Claim and What You Can Do About it
Whether you are injured in a car accident on I-84 or hit by a vehicle when riding your bike on I-184, you are probably going to call your insurance company for help. After going to the doctor and receiving treatment for your injuries, you’ll likely submit a claim to the insurance company. Unfortunately, there’s a good chance your claim will be denied.
Unbeknownst to some, insurance companies deny a great deal of claims, which often results in accident victims having to pay for the medical expenses related to the accidents out of their own pockets—we don’t think that’s fair.
Why Denying Claims Is Good for Insurance Companies
Insurance companies should make protecting their clients a first priority, but unfortunately, it’s often not. Denying claims benefits companies for a variety of different reasons, including:
- The company will make more money. Not having to pay an accident victim what he is entitled to puts more money into the insurance company’s pockets. Bonuses and other similar incentives also encourage adjusters and other insurance employees to deny claims, as well.
- You probably won’t appeal the denial. Insurance companies know that a majority of folks will not appeal denied claims, which allows them to commit these wrongful actions and get away with them. They know that going against a company by yourself is intimidating, so they bet on the fact you will probably just let it go.
