Halifax Insurance Claims Lawyers Helping Clients Protect Their Rights
Insurance policies are supposed to serve as safety nets for policy holders. These policies should compensate victims after emergencies, tragedies, accidents, and other unexpected events. This is why policy holders pay their monthly premiums. They are paying for the “peace of mind” that they will be covered if something unforeseen should happen.
Unfortunately, some insurance companies fail to keep their end of the bargain. If an insurance company is failing to honour their obligations, you may have the right to file an insurance bad faith claim, but first, you should seek legal representation from an experienced lawyer at McKiggan Hebert.

Why Do Insurance Companies Deny Claims?
Insurance companies will look for any opportunity to lower the value of or deny your claim. Unfortunately, many legitimate claims are rejected by insurance companies who are acting in bad faith.
Some of the many reasons why an insurance company may deny your claim include:
- Policy exclusions, which means the accident was not covered by the specific insurance policy. But is the claim really excluded?
- Lapse of coverage, which means the policy holder was not covered at the time the accident occurred, so the insurance company is not required to compensate you. However, if the policy was in effect, the company must still pay the claim.
- The insurance company may claim that your injuries or losses were not sustained in the accident in question.
- The insurance company may question the severity of your injuries or the value of your claim.
- Missed deadlines. There are strict timelines that must be met to file a claim under an insurance policy.
- The insurance company doesn’t properly investigate the incident to gather evidence that is needed to support your claim.
These are some of the many reasons why an injury claim may be denied by an insurance company. If your claim has been denied or if an insurance company is not paying you promptly, turn to our lawyers for help as soon as possible.

What Should You Do If Your Insurance Company Refuses to Fully Compensate You?
Every insurance company shares the same goal: to protect their bottom line. Insurance adjusters aim to settle every claim for as little as possible because, at the end of the day, it increases the insurance companies’ profits and makes their shareholders happy. They may pressure you into accepting an unfair settlement or look for an opportunity to argue that your claim is not worth as much as you think.
Don’t let an insurance company get away with using sneaky tactics and tricks to deny you the compensation you deserve. You should never settle for less than what you are legally owed.
