How to Appeal a Car Insurance Decision in Miami

Understanding Car Insurance Claim Denials

When your car insurance claim is denied in Miami, it can feel like a major setback, but it's important to remember that this decision is not final. You have the option to appeal, and with the right legal guidance from a Morgan & Morgan insurance dispute attorney in Miami, you can challenge the denial effectively.

Common Reasons for Denial

Insurance companies operate on a profit motive and will look for any reason to deny a claim. Common justifications include:

  • Questionable Injuries: Claims that injuries were pre-existing or not related to the claimed accident.
  • Disputed Liability: Insufficient evidence about the accident’s circumstances.
  • Skipped Payments: Lapses in premium payments may lead to denied claims, though some policies allow for deferred payments.
  • Limited Coverage: Issues with the extent of coverage, especially in no-fault states like Florida where Personal Injury Protection (PIP) limits may cap recoverable amounts.
  • Baseless Denials: Sometimes claims are denied without a solid basis, particularly if the insurer believes the claimant lacks legal support.

Steps to Appeal a Denial

Appealing an insurance decision without professional legal help can be daunting and is less likely to succeed. Here’s how Morgan & Morgan can assist you in appealing your car insurance decision:
