INSURANCE LAW SERVICES
All insurance companies operate on a similar business model—pay as little as possible to settle incoming claims. Whether the insured is submitting a claim for long-term disability, medical expenses, an auto accident, or a work-related injury, the insurance company’s job is to find reasons not to pay the claim, or to only pay a fraction of the expected amount. When disputes arise around failure to pay, delayed or denied claims, or other insurance-related matters, it is in your best interest to consult with a lawyer experienced in the complex area of insurance law.
WHEN YOU SHOULD CALL A LAWYER
Insurance companies love when claimants come to the table without legal representation. They understand that most individuals have no idea how to calculate a reasonable settlement offer, and they will use this knowledge to take advantage of you. Insurance companies will start with the lowest possible offer, knowing that most people just want to get their process over with and go home with a check. But taking the first settlement offer without having an experienced Alberta insurance lawyer by your side could cost you thousands. If you need to make a substantial claim against your insurance company, you should call a lawyer.
MAKING A CLAIM
If you have been injured on the job, in a motor vehicle accident, in a slip and fall accident, on another’s property, or if you are unable to work due to a disability, you may need to file an insurance claim. Regardless of the type of insurance, the insurance company, or the details of your policy, the claims process can be time consuming and overwhelming. An Alberta insurance lawyer can sift through the details of your case, help you gather evidence to substantiate your claim, and position you to obtain the maximum settlement available.
Furthermore, if you have already filed a claim and have been denied, it is in your best interest to seek legal counsel immediately. Time is of the essence if you want to appeal the unfavourable decision, and a skilled lawyer can help you figure out what went wrong the first time, and make sure it doesn’t happen again.
