Why You Need an Attorney

If your insurer has breached its duty by failing to investigate your claim, our experienced Denver failure to investigate claims lawyers can write a formal bad faith letter to the insurance company. The purpose of this letter is to:

  • Inform the insurance company that you have legal representation
  • Put the insurance provider on notice of your formal demand for payment under your contract
  • State that continuing to deny your claim after failing to investigate constitutes bad faith
  • Advises that failure to take the appropriate action will lead to a lawsuit
  • Proposes a specific amount desired to settle your claim
  • Sets a strict time limit for the insurance company to respond

If we send a bad faith letter and attempt to negotiate, but the insurance company continues refusing to pay a valid claim, we may advise you to bring a civil action against your insurer.

What Is Failure to Investigate Claims?

Failure to investigate is a form of insurance bad faith. The insurance company has a duty to:

  • Perform an investigation to determine the facts in your case; and to
  • Pay any claims it is responsible for paying under contract.

In a situation involving failure to investigate, the insurance company may outright deny a claim without having first performed a basic investigation. For example, in the case of an auto accident claim, an insurer might make the decision to deny the claim without first interviewing witnesses or obtaining crash report information concerning the accident.

Duties of an Insurance Adjuster

When you file a claim for covered property damage, your insurance provider should send an adjuster to investigate your claim and estimate the amount owed to you by the insurance company. Duties of an insurance adjuster include:

  • Responding to claims in a timely manner
  • Filing all appropriate paperwork
  • Determining the cause of the property damage
  • Analyzing all aspects of your claim, including costs of repairs
  • Documenting all covered losses pursuant to policy definitions and notifying the insurance provider

This investigation is critical to your receiving a settlement for your damages. If your insurer fails to send an adjuster to conduct an investigation and denies your claim or reduces the amount, you have grounds to take legal action based on insurance bad faith.
