    Responsibility of Insurance Companies in Philadelphia

    Insurance policies serve many purposes, though the general goal is to provide protection or a safety net in case of an accident, unforeseen property damage, sickness, or death. For a monthly premium, people in Philadelphia believe they are buying peace of mind. However, insurance companies are not always readily enthusiastic about paying every claim. In fact, insurance companies will often work to offer the minimum compensation on a filed claim. It is not uncommon for companies to entirely reject a claim. It is important to remember that even though you are paying a monthly premium, an insurance company is not working for your benefit. Believe it or not, some insurance providers will deny legitimate claims and only investigate them further if the policyholder raises an issue.

    Insurance companies will employ various tactics to increase their profits and not provide compensation for every claim. This could include making the claims process difficult, overwhelming the insured with long, complicated documents, or failing to accept evidence or denying your claim for dubious reasons. Furthermore, an insurance company could add frivolous fees to your claim to minimize the payout.

    Suing for Denial of Philadelphia Insurance Claims

    Your insurance company is as much a party to the original insurance contract as you are. If your claim has been delayed or denied by your provider without a substantiated reason, it could constitute a contractual violation. Often, if an insurance company violates a contractual obligation, it could be acting in bad faith. Some specific examples of bad faith practices include the following.

    • Denying a claim without adequate justification or explanation
    • An unreasonable delay in determining the sufficiency of a claim or providing payment

    Insurance Companies Failing to Provide Coverage in Philadelphia

    Your insurance provider drafted the contract and any other documents your might have signed. Insurance companies often interpret ambiguous language contained in your policy in its favor and draft in actual loopholes to minimize the amount it would have to pay on a legitimate claim. You could have your claim denied based on a loose interpretation of very unclear language in the contract. Our experienced Philadelphia insurance attorneys are skilled at navigating the deviously complicated provisions insurance companies include in their policies.

    Insurance Providers Charging Philadelphians Unfair Charges

    Most insurance rate increases and charges are explained clearly and justified under the terms of the policy. However, there are times when an insurance provider will tack on a fee or raise a premium without an adequate explanation or just reason. There is an expectation that people in Philadelphia will not question every fee or increase. If you believe your insurance carrier has raised its fees without contractual justification or in an attempt to increase your cost, contact our Philadelphia lawyer immediately.

    Hiring a Lawyer to Sue Your Insurance Company in Philadelphia

    If you think that your insurance carrier has acted in bad faith in either denying or investigating a claim, it is essential to contact our office. Additionally, there are several steps you should take to help prepare for potential litigation against your provider.

    Remember to collect documents and take detailed notes. When building a lawsuit against an insurance company providing evidence of every communication and transaction is vital to establishing your provider acted in bad faith. Keep copies of all communications, emails, letters, and take notes of any phone conversations. You should ensure that dates and times are included, as well as the names, titles, and phone numbers of any agent or representative who discussed the matter with you.

    It is also to critical to comply with your obligations under the insurance policy. Ensure that you respond to any correspondence promptly and provide any documents or forms requested. Also, make sure you are courteous and polite during all of your phone communications.

    Once all of the proper documentation and evidence has been gathered, our Philadelphia insurance attorney will begin the process of preparing and filing a lawsuit against your insurance carrier. Before filing a complaint with the court, we will draft a detailed letter to your insurance company, outlining the basis of the claim and the reasons we believe they failed to comply with their obligations under the terms of the insurance policy.

    ...I want to say that the Reiff Law Firm changed my entire life with handling of my legal case.

    As a former client, I want to say that the Reiff Law Firm changed my entire life with handling of my legal case. I was in a very serious automobile accident with severe injuries to neck and back areas. I contacted the law firm and asked what to do with the medical bills and how do I get the correct representation against the individual who rear-ended my car. In short, the firm took complete control of the case contacting my insurance company and asking for all the medical bills and legal matters be sent directly to them. I was able to get treatment from my doctor without worrying about the legal stuff. Furthermore, two years later the case was settled for a substantial amount of money. My life was much better due to the firm handling of my case. My attorneys at Reiff Law Firm are absolutely the best and I have recommended to my family friends. Thanks Reiff Law Firm.

    I’m very comfortable to say there’s no better in the city.

    Before meeting with Jeffrey Reiff and Bob Szostak from the Reiff law firm I’ve consulted with a few other injury attorneys in the Philadelphia region. Difference was, these guys know their stuff! I was absolutely blown away by how compassionate and welcome this law firm makes you feel. Once signed with them I never went a single week without staying in the loop with the progress and updates these guys have on your case. Working with them for some time turned what was an injury case, into a family! From calls and meetings, to just calling in to say “hi how’s everything going” I’ve never felt like a beat was skipped. I’d recommended the Reiff law firm 100%! I’m very comfortable to say there’s no better in the city. The awards they’ve earned over the years speaks for itself! I can never thank the Reiff law firm and Bob Szostak enough for everything they’ve done, their professionalism, compassion and all of their knowledge and experience! Highly rated! Best in the city! I look forward continuing our relationship in the future. Thanks again My Reiff family!

    ...without them I would have been lost.

    I can’t say enough great things about the Attorneys at the Reiff Law Firm. They made me feel at ease when I was going through a very difficult time in my life. Never being in a situation like this I was so unsure of where to start and how to go about the process. Justin gave me options where I thought I had none and explained everything in a way that I could understand. Justin and the team helped me arrange all of the treatment and therapy that I needed, without them I would have been lost. My attorney John went to bat for me like no one else could have, his knowledge and professionalism is unmatched. If anyone is ever in need of a team of attorneys the Reiff Law Firm is my ONLY recommendation.
