Arizona Insurance Bad Faith Attorney Can Protect Your Rights
When you are involved in an automobile accident, chances are you are going to file an insurance claim for damages and your injuries. While it is common practice to file the claim against the other driver, some drivers are under-insured or not insured at all. This means you will have to file a claim with your auto insurance company using your under-insured (or uninsured) driver coverage. However, your claim may be rejected.
Why insurers reject claims
In some instances, an insurance company may feel the claim should be paid by another party. For example, if you have been injured in a car accident, it’s possible that while you maintain coverage for an under-insured driver, your insurer may feel the other drivers insurance should pay your claim. We typically carry this type of coverage to protect us from the possibility of dealing with an accident where the other driver failed to get sufficient coverage. Keep in mind the insurance company has been collecting your premiums and may need to be forced to hold up their end of the bargain. In many cases, insurance companies are simply interested in protecting their bottom line and that means rejecting claims whenever possible.
Fighting insurance companies
Many people feel that fighting with their insurance company is like going up against “city hall”. You may feel frustrated and angry but feel that no matter what you do, you cannot win. This is when it may be helpful to consider hiring an Arizona insurance bad faith attorney for help. Doing so will make sure there is someone on your side.
