I have been asked many times by people who have been involved in car accidents whether or not they can sue the insurance company. After an accident, victims that have contracted severe or mild personal injury are faced with exhausting amounts of medical bills and expenses that the insurance company will try to avoid paying for as much as possible. Insurance claim representatives are well-trained to resist coverage of large claims, no matter how severe the injury is.
If you and the insurance company can’t reach an agreement on a settlement amount, you can sue the company for what you think is a fair value. If the Court agrees that the insurance company was wrong in denying your claim, you can then receive full compensation for what is deserving. You should also be able to get additional damages for emotional distress, lost income and legal fees that have come about as a result of the extra trouble with the insurance company.
Insurance companies want to make money and they will wrongfully deny some of the thousands of claims they receive every day to save money. If your insurance claim is denied or if you are offered a clearly insufficient amount, you should hire an experienced personal injury lawyer to help you get the compensation you need. Grounds that you can sue an insurance company for include failure to carry out proper investigations, undue delay in processing a claim, disregard for the rights of the policyholder, and inadequate compensation for the filed claim.
