Insurance companies are known to engage in an array of different types
of deceptive claims settlement practices. By being able to identify these
acts by an insurance company, you will better understand when the time
has arrived to seek legal intervention on your behalf.
One of the most common types of deceptive claims settlement acts by an
insurance company is improperly delaying the settlement process. Every
state has a set of laws setting forth the manner and timeframe in which
different types of insurance claims should be settled. Like most claimants,
you may not have any idea what these timeframes are in regard to your
Insurance companies engage in deceptive claims settlement practices to
continually pushing back the settlement of claim by contending further
investigation needs to be undertaken. Insurance companies also push back
a settlement in an unlawfully manner by contending a review of the evidence
is still ongoing. While there can be lawful situations in which these
delays can occur, an insurance company oftentimes abuses the process by
raising these contentions.
Insurance companies use these types of tactics to essentially wear you
down as a claimant. Insurance companies drag the claim settlement process
along to leave you in the position of believing you should take whatever
you can get from an insurance company now, even if it is an amount far
less than what you really are entitled.
An extreme version of a deceptive claims settlement practice is denying
a claim outright, when that course of action is not supported by the actual
facts of the case.
