Anytime you make a claim against an insurance company you are taking on a complex corporate system with the goal of minimizing the value of your claim, or even denying it. Most people believe that as long as they only ask for what is reasonable, their insurance claim will be paid with little resistance. Often people are disappointed when their claim is denied.
The Texas Insurance Code gives people making claims against their own insurance company certain rights and protections. These include deadlines for the insurance company to respond to requests by the insured and a duty of good faith and fair dealing while negotiating the claim. Hiring an attorney helps you make sure the insurance company is following the law during handling of your claim. Don’t assume that you have no option other than the one offered by the insurance company.
