Insurance Disputes

There are a multitude of disputes that arise between individual consumers or businesses and their insurer.

As a responsible individual or business owner, you make sure you are properly insured.

There may be legal requirements for you to take out a policy of insurance in specific circumstances. Often you will sensibly just want to protect yourself against risk. Unfortunately, insurers may not always honour their end of the deal.

What is an Insurance Dispute?

There are a multitude of disputes that arise between individual consumers / businesses and their Insurer or Broker.

Insurers include significant terms, conditions and warranties in their contracts of insurance. These are buried deep within the fine print, schedules and certificates. Insurers will often try to rely on these terms to reject legitimate claims.

For instance an insurer may rely on a breach that is not relevant to the loss, or they may argue that the claim was not reported quickly enough. Sometimes insurers will behave as if they agree to pay a claim, only to renege on their promise weeks or months down the line. Often a policyholder would have relied on the insurer to their detriment.

On occasion, the fault will lie with the broker. They may not have presented the facts to a insurer correctly at the outset of the policy. Sometimes a broker fails to even arrange your insurance as promised, leaving you uninsured.

When an insurance claim is rejected it may have a life-long and devastating effect on you, your family or your business.
