The Insurance Company Is Denying Your Injury Claim. What Now?

by Staff Blogger | September 23rd, 2020

You were just involved in a serious auto accident. You suffered injuries, you’ve racked up medical bills, and you can’t work. The insurance company is supposed to reimburse you for what you’ve gone through, especially if the other driver was at fault for the crash, but they aren’t cooperating. What are your options?

First, call a lawyer. At Ponce Law, our Nashville auto accident attorneys have many years of experience fighting for the rights of people who were mistreated by insurance companies. It’s not too late to get the money you’re owed, even if the insurance company already “denied” your claim.

Second, follow all of your doctor’s orders. Not only will doing so help you recover faster, but it will also strengthen your claim. When you follow up on your doctor’s appointments and do all of the recommended physical therapy, the insurance company won’t be able to write off your claim or say you’re exaggerating your injuries.

Finally, avoid talking about the accident as much as possible. Only discuss it with close family members and your lawyer. It’s important to avoid discussing it, especially on social media. Insurance adjusters comb through victims’ social media accounts to find potentially incriminating statements, even if it means taking them out of context. Don’t give them that luxury—stay silent until your case resolves!

Getting denied when you need money after an accident can be a big blow, but it isn’t a final decision. Our lawyers can step in and make the right situation for you and your loved ones. Call us today.
