In a perfect world, there would be no need to sue your own insurance company. However, the unfortunate reality is that sometimes it’s necessary in order to receive the compensation that you’re entitled to.

The team at Beckett is dedicated to providing you with compassion, care, and support so that you can feel confident on your legal journey.

Why Would You Sue Your Insurance Company?

An insurance company is supposed to protect you in times of need. However, there are instances in which your insurance company may not be willing to pay out the benefits that you are entitled to. There can be a variety of reasons why your insurance company may refuse to pay out your benefits. In these cases, you may have a case to sue your insurance company for the benefits that you are eligible for.

How To Start An Insurance Claim

If your insurance company is refusing to pay out the compensation that you are entitled to, it may be time to consider contacting a lawyer. An experienced lawyer can help guide you through the process of starting an insurance claim, and most people will choose to hire a lawyer to assist them with the process, as it can be very complicated.

Insurance companies are large, sophisticated companies that have plenty of legal representation at their disposal. This can make it difficult for an individual to go up against them on their own and win.

The process of disputing a denial of benefits from an insurer can take many forms. There might be an internal review or appeal process that can be triggered. Sometimes the amounts in issue fall within the jurisdiction of the Small Claims Court, while other times the amounts claimed are too large for that court. Other times, it may be that your only option is to bring your dispute to a government board or tribunal. Each policy of insurance is different and the analysis of what options are available in each case can be complex.

The complex nature of filing a a claim against an insurance company leads many people to connect with a lawyer – whether it’s simply to ask questions, or to handle the claim in its entirety, an experienced lawyer can be a very beneficial and helpful resource in any case.
