***Do Not Give In When Claims Denied By Your Homeowner Insurance. Even though some 10 percent of insurance claims are unjustly denied, less than one percent of claimants even bother to question their insurance company about a denied claim. Giving up after an initial denial can be a costly mistake: most policy holders who contest a denied claim either end up ultimately winning the case or securing better settlement terms. If your insurance claim has been denied, there are a few steps you should take to ensure you are not being treated unfairly. Contact your insurer and insist on a written explanation for why your claim was denied. Carefully review your policy, making note of any provisions that seem unjust, confusing or ambiguous. And, do not allow your insurer to talk you out of pursuing a potentially valid claim - trust your sense of fairness and speak with a Public Adjuster. If something about how your claim has been handled does not seem fair to you, chances are the applicable law will support your position. Contacting Select Public Adjusters, LLC experience in handling insurance claims may be your most important step. Our Public Adjusters will help you get a maximize settlement.
