Insurance Claim Complications

Assistance from a Dayton Personal Injury Attorney

After individuals are wrongfully injured, they can seek damages for their losses by filing an insurance claim. This may be with the insurance company of the person or commercial entity that caused the injury, or it may even be with the injury victim's own insurance company. Unfortunately, there are many injury victims out there who face a great amount of opposition when it comes to getting these insurers to pay up. It is not uncommon for an insurance company to find ways to lower the victim's settlement amount, or even to completely reject the claim.

Here are some of the common issues that injury victims run across when they are pursuing personal injury compensation through an insurance claim:

  • The insurance company alleges that the victim is partially or fully at fault for the accident.
  • The insurance company denies that its insured was in any way liable for the accident.
  • The insurance company disputes the severity of the injury or the amount of the medical bills.
  • The insurance company claims that the victim had a pre-existing condition.
  • The insurance company claims that the victim worsened his or her own condition.
