Below, we outline the steps of filing a legal claim against an insurance company:

Identify Cause

In personal injury law, the term legal dispute refers to an instance wherein an insurance company and a client disagree about whether their policy should cover a given accident (or what amount the policy should cover). If your insurance company fails to uphold the terms of your policy, you have a basis for dispute. The following are common causes of dispute:

  • The insurer denied the claim with unjust cause
  • The insurer withheld compensation
  • The insurer withheld fair compensation
  • The insurer failed to cooperate within a reasonable timeframe
  • The insurer acted in bad faith
  • The insurer failed to defend you in a liability lawsuit involving the claim

Establish Value

If you believe that your insurance company has operated unjustly towards you, contact Davana’s personal injury attorney. They can examine your policy against the insurance company’s actions and determine the strength of your case. 

California limits individuals seeking recompense valued at $10,000 or less to operate in a small claims court. In this scenario, your attorney cannot represent you at the initial hearing, but they can still assist you in filing a claim and guide you through the claims process. 

Prepare Records

For your attorney to best assist you, you must provide all records regarding the insurance claim. Gather receipts, photos, and a log of your correspondence with the insurance company. Include the full terms of your insurance policy, as well.

If you initially disputed your insurance company’s denial of your claim, you should provide documentation of that interaction. Also, prepare a copy of the reasoning your insurance company gave you for their determination.

File the Claim

An experienced attorney can help you iron out the details of the filing process, such as determining the company’s legal name, where to file the claim, and your statute of limitations, that is, your deadline for filing. After including the applicable records, your claim will be ready to file via mail or directly to the appropriate court.
