South Carolina Delayed Claims Lawyers
Insurance is a necessary expense that helps protect you and your loved ones. When a natural disaster strikes your home, a thief breaks into your car, or an unexpected medical emergency arises, you expect your insurance company to help ease the burden of these devastating experiences. Although you dutifully pay your insurance company each month, some insurance companies may not fulfill their obligation to you as a customer. Through delaying claims, insurance providers save money while placing an undue burden on you and your family. This behavior is not only disgraceful; it is also illegal.
You should not have to suffer due to the actions of greedy insurance providers. You have the legal right to fight back against these companies, but you do not have to do it alone. The dedicated South Carolina delayed claims attorneys at Evans Moore, LLC have experience fighting against insurance bad faith, and they are prepared to help you receive the compensation you need.
Insurance Company Responsibilities
Although you place trust in your insurance company to provide for you, these companies may break this trust in order to increase their profits. These companies are legally bound to act “in good faith” towards their customers, but due to weak regulations and unsuspecting clients, some companies have turned towards dishonorable practices instead. Insurance providers may delay or deny legitimate claims so that they do not have to pay the expense and instead place it back on their clients. Signs of bad faith delayed claims include:
- Asking for unnecessary documentation of the claim
- Failing to provide explanation for the delay
- Claiming to investigation of the claim without reason
- Indicating the claim is too late
- Stating you filled out incorrect paperwork
Tactics such as these can slow down or halt the insurance claim process for several months or years. Many people do not continue to fight for their legal right to the insurance claim due to frustration or because disability or sickness makes it impossible. In situations where clients give up fighting, or in the worst case, dies before the claim is fulfilled, the insurance company makes a profit off the client’s loss. This behavior is unacceptable.
