SANTA ANA, Calif., Nov. 18, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Following an automobile accident, drivers depend on insurance companies to help them pay their vehicle repair costs as well as their medical expenses. Submitted auto insurance claims are not always accepted by the insurance company, however. In a new statement to the press, the Santa Ana accident attorneys at I Accident Lawyer explain why a claim might be denied.
"If you do not seek immediate medical attention following an accident, the legitimacy of your injury claim may be called into question," says Robert Koenig, car accident attorney. "Insurance companies can also reject a claim if medical records do not indicate an injury or if the injury is determined to pre-date the accident."
Additionally, an auto insurance company might reject a claim if the accident was avoidable — for example if it was caused by the policyholder driving while intoxicated or allowing an unlicensed driver behind the wheel.
"If your claim is denied for any of these reasons, it's important to contact an attorney, who can help you get the claim accepted," says Koenig. "And if the claim is denied without a valid reason provided, then the insurance company is acting in bad faith — making a personal injury attorney even more necessary."
