Understanding the Benefits of Insurance Advocacy

By December 29, 2020 No Comments

Especially through all of the new issues that have developed through the pandemic, it’s becoming increasingly clear that insurance companies can and will deny coverage without a reasonable explanation. In many cases, you may try to communicate with someone from the insurance company, only to receive confusing answers that still don’t lead to more questions and a hefty bill with little to no compensation to help you move forward. If you are battling with any type of insurer who is denying your claim, working with a knowledgeable insurance advocacy attorney can be incredibly useful. Insurance attorneys are more than legal experts – they’re advocates whose job is to examine the details of your situation and develop the most effective strategy for helping you receive the benefits you deserve. Let’s take a closer look at the insurance advocacy process and how it aims to empower those who are struggling with unresponsive insurance companies.

Bringing Clarity to Complex Insurance Statements

Bills and statements from insurance companies are often difficult to read and rarely include useful information. Costs are typically listed with little or no explanation and trying to get answers on your own can be next to impossible. One way that an insurance advocacy attorney can help you is to take a look at your statements from your insurer and use a wealth of knowledge and experience to shed some light on what they actually say. From there, you can discuss whether these charges seem unfair, and your attorney can determine a strategic plan for contacting the insurance carrier and requesting that they pay you the amount you are requesting.

Handling Communication With a Reluctant Insurer

Perhaps the most valuable way an insurance advocacy lawyer can help you is to become the main liaison for all communication with the insurance company in question. Insurers often know how long and frustrating the insurance claims process can be for people to navigate on their own, and they rely on claimants becoming too tired and overwhelmed by the process, ultimately giving up on the claim altogether. Don’t let these stubborn companies intimidate you—contact a skilled insurance advocacy attorney who understands the tactics that insurers use to avoid paying claimants and will fight back using time-tested and effective strategies. An insurance advocacy attorney does all of the hard work so you can focus on healing and moving forward.

Addressing All Types of Insurance Matters

Insurance advocacy extends well beyond medical-related disputes. Perhaps recent heavy rains damaged your home in some way, and your insurer has denied your claim for repair compensation? Maybe local civil unrest led to vandalism damage and your insurer is trying to use a loophole to minimize payout? Regardless, battling the insurance company is not easy and not a dispute that should be handled alone. Working with an insurance advocacy attorney can give you the reassurance and confidence you need during this frustrating process.
