Insurance providers will give a variety of excuses for denying a property claim. Some common reasons they give include:
Missing or late premium payments
Filing for uninsured losses
Lacking evidence to prove your property damage
Suspicion of fraud
Filing for property damage coverage too late
Human error on behalf of the adjuster
Coverage limits have been met or exceeded
As a policyholder, you are entitled to a review of your disputed claims. A property insurance attorney may be able to help you ensure no errors were made by the adjuster.
If you suspect your insurance provider underpaid your claim, or denied it on unlawful grounds, you should contact an attorney immediately. They can assist you in filing a bad faith claim against your insurance company, meaning it purposely and unlawfully attempted to avoid paying for losses covered under your policy.
