If My Insurance Denies My Injury Claim, is the Case Over?

You've been hurt in an accident. You've been paying your insurance fees for years, and now when you need your insurance to cover your damages, you get a letter stating that your claim has been denied. After thousands of dollars in payment to the insurance company just so that you can be covered in the event of an accident, an accident happens and now your insurance is saying "tough luck". Is that the end of your injury claim? Do you have to accept the denial of your claim by the insurance company?

If my Insurance Denies my Injury Claim, is my case over?

Insurance companies have a habit of either low-balling their clients or completely denying their offers. That doesn't mean that you aren't owed recovery, and it doesn't mean that they are right. So what can you do, what are your options?

An insurance company denying a claim is little different from an insurance company trying to low-ball you. They don't want to pay you what you are owed. You're going to need a personal injury lawyer and one that knows the laws regarding the what insurance companies are required to pay, and what a person's rights are after an accident/injury.

How can a lawyer help you if your case is denied? A personal injury lawyer in St. Louis is going to be able to help you gather the evidence your claim is going to need to continue. They can help you get all of your medical records, police reports, witness testimonies, and more. The collection of evidence in your claim is going to be critically important. Once this evidence is collected, and you have a clear record of the losses you sustained from the accident, a case can then be pursed against your insurance provider. If they insist on denying your claim, taking your insurance to court or even threatening to take them to court can often bring them back to the bargaining table.

If your insurance provider is smart, they'll listen to your demands and come to the table. If they aren't, with the help of your lawyer you can take them to court to seek recovery. What can you recover? You can recover your medical losses, wage losses, pain and suffering, as well as any property loss or future damages that can arrive from medical issues that resulted from the accident.
