Chicago Insurance Consultant Lawyer
If you are in a dispute with an insurance company over a property damage or business income loss claim you submitted, or if they denied your claim, an insurance consultant lawyer in Chicago from Childress Loucks & Plunkett may help you reach a positive outcome.
What many businesses do not realize is that they have the right to hire legal representation and to resubmit a claim that was denied. Before resubmitting your claim, allow our insurance consultant lawyer to review your documentation. Not only might we be able to get approval for your claim, we may be able to identify damages that you sustained but which you did not realize could be included. In addition, our insurance consultant lawyer may negotiate with the insurance company on your behalf in an effort to maximize the amount of your settlement. If the insurance company refuses to negotiate in good faith, we may pursue a lawsuit if necessary and as a last resort.
The Insurance Claim Appeals Process
There are a number of reasons for why an insurance company might deny a business’ property claim. In many cases, when this occurs, an insurance consultant lawyer can step in to represent your best interests and help you receive the compensation that you deserve. Some of the most common reasons for a denied personal injury claim include the following:
- It may be because the claimant made a simple clerical error that can be easily corrected before resubmitting the claim. An insurance consultant lawyer can also review the remainder of the claim and check it for accuracy as well as other potential issues and work with you to correct them.
- It may be for another clerical reason, such as the claimant did not submit sufficient documentation in support of their loss. Your insurance consultant lawyer can refer you to a trusted valuation expert who can examine your loss and provide the necessary documentation as well as testimony, if necessary. At Childress Loucks & Plunkett, we may then resubmit the claim on your behalf.
- It may be that the insurance company is acting in bad faith and refusing to uphold their end of the contract between themselves and their customer who is the party responsible for causing your injury. If the carrier refuses to be reasonable or refuses to negotiate with an insurance consultant lawyer, your lawyer can pursue a civil lawsuit if necessary. In that scenario, your lawyer can also include attorneys’ fees in your list of damages.
Your Right To Have Legal Representation
