Handling Insurance Claims on Your Behalf

You cannot count on an insurance company to resolve your auto accident damages in your favor. Most insurance companies are not eager or willing to pay for someone’s damages in a car accident case caused by their customer.

There may even be situations where your insurance company should pay you, rather than the insurance company of the at-fault driver. This is called underinsured/uninsured motorist coverage. If you have this and you have been hit by someone who does not have enough insurance to cover your damages, then you have the right to seek compensation from your own insurance company. But even though you pay your insurance bill on time, some insurance companies will not pay your claim on time. They may try to delay accepting coverage, underpay coverage, or even completely deny your claim and keep the money that should pay for your losses.

At the Law Office of Shane McClelland, we are experienced in dealing with insurance companies and insurance adjusters. We know how to handle claims aggressively to ensure that you are positioned for success every step of the way.
