Due to the state of the economy, insurance carriers are using aggressive tactics to maximize their bottom line. The good news is that the law does not allow insurance carriers to make their profit by disputing or denying valid insurance claims.
While some insurance companies blatantly dispute or deny valid insurance claims for profit, others have employed the tactic of bullying you to settle a claim for far less than what it is worth. It is YOUR LEGAL RIGHT to get paid what you are worth and you should never take your legal rights lightly. Our legal partners are committed to protecting those rights when the insurance companies get nasty.
In order for your legal team to do their job, you need to do yours and that means more than just water restoration. It means getting the right contracts and documentation into place. One of the most critical of these documents is a signed Assignment of Benefits. As a Net Claims Now member your service contract will automatically include an Assignment of Benefits clause. As an added member benefit, you will have direct access to our resource page, allowing you to partner with one of our prequalified attorneys who specialize in enforcing assignment clauses and handling insurance claim disputes.
An Assignment of Benefits is a legal document entitling the restoration company to get paid DIRECTLY from the insurance company.
It also assigns the policy rights and benefits to the restoration company, allowing suit to be brought against the insurance company should circumstances arise.
Let’s say you just completed an average structural drying job. You submit your invoice to the adjuster for payment. The adjuster disagrees with the use of two of the six dehumidifiers used and only wants to pay for three days of drying on the remainder of equipment, not the four days you’ve charged for.
Disputed claim value = $1,400.00
Most insurance company disputes are settled without going to trial. Defending a law suit all the way to trial is costly for the insurance company. More often your attorney will reach a settlement agreement that includes your payment and attorney fees.
If your attorney files suit with the court, the insurance company is served. The attorney for the insurance company has 20 days to respond to the complaint.
