Denied insurance claims
If you’ve had your insurance claim denied, don’t give up hope.
It can be expensive to repair your property after it is damaged. Insurance policies can help with this, but sometimes the insurance company will not pay for damage that happened. This is called a denied claim. If this happens to you, don’t give up. It is important to knowthat there are things you can do to try and obtain the outcome you deserve.
Firstly, it’s important to remember the insurance company is a business, and like any other business, it’s their nature to provide a service and make a profit. This means that insurers may try to deny your claim or pay you less than you deserve for the damage to your property.
There are things you can do if your insurance claim is denied. First, review your policy and make sure you understand what it covers. If you don’t understand something, ask an expert. There are also adjusters called Public Insurance Adjusters that work on commission to help property owners get the most from their insurance company. They will help you file your specific claim and fight for theoutcome you deserve. Don’t accept a denial from the insurance company without fighting for what you are owed
Reasons my claim was denied
One reason that insurance claims are subject to denial is because a person failed to take reasonable steps to protect their property from damage. For example, if you have a plumbing leak and leave it for an extended period of time you are not making an effort to protect the property. Make sure you understand your policy and take all necessary precautions to protect your property from damage.
Reporting a loss promptly is one of the most important steps you can take to ensure that your insurance claim is processed smoothly. The insurance company wants to have an opportunity to investigate the loss without other factors impacting the property. Make sure you submit a report of any damage or loss as soon as possible. While you do have two to three years to report a loss, the best outcome will be determined when you submit a report as quickly as possible.
Too much information often doesn’t help the insurers get a clear picture of the loss and damage you report and are requesting compensation for. If there were multiple causes of damage, previous insurance claims, or pre-existing damages, information that the desk adjuster needs becomesconfusing. It’s important to present clear and concise information to the insurance company. Make sure you are honest and accurate when reporting any information. This will help ensure that your insurance company has all the information they need to process your claim.
Insurers may believe that the damages were caused by something other than an insured peril or what you were reporting. For example, if the water damage was caused by a faulty roof, insurers may deny your claim because the damage was not caused by a covered cause of loss. Make sure you understand your policy and are able to accurately describe the cause of the damage to the insurance company.
If the insurers deny your claim because they felt that the damages were not caused by an insured peril, you may need to provide additional evidence to help your case. The policy will list the causes of loss it covers. If your claim isn’t presented properly and you haven’t supported it with details they could deny it.
If you have evidence like photographs of the damage, receipts for repairs, and witness statements, you can build a specific claim. Make sure you have all the information you need to justify your insurance claim and contact a Public Insurance Adjuster if you need help contesting the outcome of your claim with the insurance company.
If you have already denied your insurance company’s request for additional informationor failed to timely cooperate with their investigation they may have denied your claim for that reason. Make sure you provide all the information the insurance company needs in a timely manner and cooperate with their investigation. Make yourself available to the desk adjuster. This will help ensure that your insurance claim is processed smoothly.
Filing multiple claims may result in your insurance company denying your current claim. A property owner is entitled to file as many claims as they have. Make sure you are honest and accurate when reporting any information. The insurance company needs to understand what repairs were made from previous claims, what was paid for in previous claims, and what damages might be pre-existing and unrepaired. This will help ensure that your insurance company has all the information they need to process your claim after a thorough analysis.
If your insurance company dismissed your claim because of pre-existing damage, you may need to provide additional evidence to justify your case. The policy will list the causes of loss it covers. If the claim isn’t presented properly and you haven’t supported it with documented evidence, the insurance company may deny your claim. This could include photographs of the damage, receipts for repairs, and witness statements. Make sure you have all the information you need to support your insurance claim and contact a Public Insurance Adjuster to see if you need assistance.
This is a common denial reason for insurance claims. If the damage occurred slowly over a long period it’s not going to be covered. If your insurance company denied your claim because of long-term wear and tear, you may need to provide additional evidence to justify your case. The policy will list the causes of loss it covers. Providing photographs of the damage, receipts for repairs, and witness statements will strengthen your claim. Experts can also be brought in to provide opinions and confirm the claims.
In Florida there are statutes designed to protect the property owner. The policies have to be written with that in mind. It’s the job of the desk adjuster to interpret the policy to find coverage for the claim and make a payment. Too often, insurance company adjusters aren’t trained well enough and misinterpret the facts resulting in a dismissed claim and subsequently, no payment. Even minor errors can result in a poor response and a denied claim. Don’t ever trust a denial from the insurance company without getting a Public Insurance Adjuster to review the circumstances first.

If the damage is from long-term wear and tear, you may need to provide evidence to justify your claim. The policy will list the causes of loss it covers.
You should also be aware of any state laws that could be in your favor. In Florida, for example, there are statutes designed to protect the property owner.
