How to Tell That the Insurance Company Isn’t Taking Your Claim Seriously

Share this post:

It’s unfortunate, but insurance companies aren’t always going to be willing to work with you on your insurance claim. While Alabama residents are required by law to carry some insurance, insurers may push back on giving you the settlement you need to deal with your medical expenses, time off of work, and emotional trauma following an accident.

If you don’t know how to tell that the insurance company isn’t taking your claim seriously, you may need an attorney to help you get the compensation you need to pick up where you left off with your life. At the Henry Dailey Law Firm, we’ve seen their tactics, and we know how to fight back.

Inappropriate Settlement Offers

Your first sign of trouble may be when you get a disappointing settlement offer. Insurance companies often lowball the settlement offers they send out, expecting you to believe that this is all they can offer you. Many people are discouraged, thinking that’s the best they can do, and they take the low settlement.

This is why it’s important to know your settlement’s worth before you accept anything. After all, insurance companies are for-profit businesses, and it’s better for business to keep as much of the profit on your policy as possible. So when the insurer sends you an initial offer, remember first that you don’t have to accept.

Lightning Fast Offers That Seem Low

Insurance adjusters know when you have a solid claim, and they know when you deserve a larger settlement. They also know that, after an accident, you may face pressure from the hospital, your need for transportation, and other outlets, meaning you’re tired and looking to settle your claim fast. Unfortunately, this can lead to further issues with getting the right settlement.

The insurance company will use your eagerness to handle your settlement quickly against you. Most people, of course, just want to be done with their claim so they can get their compensation. The insurance company may offer you a quick, low settlement shortly after your accident, giving you less than your claim is worth if you accept.

No Response to Your Claim

Sometimes, insurers may simply not respond to you at all. This can be especially frustrating when you’re trying to decide whether you should try to recover your full settlement while the clock is ticking toward your claim being dismissed. While you have two years to make your claim in Alabama, you might have been unable to act earlier, or you might have been unsure of whether you had a viable claim at all.

When the insurance company refuses to acknowledge your claim, it isn’t taking you seriously. It will be up to you to take action before time runs out.
