Phoenix Insurance Coverage Dispute Attorneys
Have you been injured or become ill and been forced to pay for your treatment, even though you thought you were covered by insurance? In a world of rising premiums and growing economic uncertainty, insurance coverage disputes are becoming more and more common. Here's what you need to know:
Insurance coverage disputes can arise in many areas, including medical, homeowner's, property, life, and disability insurance. Generally, these injuries involve an insurance company refusing to pay for some loss on the part of the insured. Denial or loss of coverage can pose serious problems to individuals who find themselves without care and must bear the heavy weight of dealing with a medical problem or loss without the help of the insurance they had bargained for and counted on.
While state and federal laws do apply to insurance companies, some insurers are becoming more and more savvy when it comes to denying claims. Pushed by pressure to make more money and cover fewer claims, some unscrupulous insurers intentionally take longer to approve coverage or may wait until after a loss to inform you that you are not covered - unfair tactics that sometimes cost someone their money, their property - and in the case of wrongfully denied health insurance - their life.
Due to the incredibly complex laws surrounding insurance coverage disputes, it is recommended that individuals involved in such a dispute contact an experience Phoenix insurance attorney as soon as possible to protect their legal rights. You may be eligible to sue the insurer for the money they should have paid you and collect damages related to the injury, costs of treatment, and the pain and suffering caused by their refusal to pay what you were owed. If the denial was done solely to increase profit at the known expense of paying a valid claim, punitive damages for bad faith may be applicable and available, as well.
