When you disagree with your insurance company, about a claim, you have options you can use without going to court.
# 1. If your agent is unable to resolve your problem, get the names and phone numbers of your insurance companies claim department. This is usually an 800 number. Call and ask if they have a consumer complaint department? Most people do, if so, talk to them because they can help you. Unless you find the specific name of that person with whom you talked (note the person you talked to and do not hold on until you end with your dispute).
# 2. Be ready to support your case by sending a case (with the person you had told) to your case, in which you have all the documents to back up your situation.
# 3 All insurance companies, either an “evaluation service” or “mediation service” either help in the arrangement of differences and/or disputes. Your policy should be deemed to have these options. (If you can not find any of these, then find your agent for you)!
# 4. If you follow your rules to resolve your dispute, and you are still not satisfied, then the insurance department of your own state should be able to assist you.
# 5. If, after hearing from your insurer’s people (you believe that you have not been properly handled) you should be sponsored by the insurance industry, 1 800 9 42-4242 (a toll-free consumer information service).
Available to trained personnel to help the complainants. This “Help Line” is operated on Easter Time, Tuesday Friday, 8:00 AM – 8:00 PM.
# 6. Also: An “independent arbitrator”, who has reportedly experienced insurance problems, can decide what is told (or offer to settle your claim) as appropriate. You can receive or contact them by calling the American Arbitration Association 1 212 484-4000 (via the Internet)
# 7. Mediation: Most, not the mediator does not have the right to make a binding decision or there is no right to award a party. The mediator recommends only one solution
Mediation is a solid first step because it can negate the need for further spending on both sides. The first thing you should do is to check the language in your auto insurance policy where it will be found which claim the arbitrator (and/or arbitrator) will have to issue a demand for the arbitration form to any person listed in your policy. needed. On the demand of the arbitration form, you can specify whether you want “MEDIATION” or “ARBITRATION”?
Demand for arbitration form is available from your state’s insurance department, or you can print a copy of a demand form from the website of the American Arbitration Association – which can be found (as I listed above in number # 6 is).
As you move forward with you, you should not follow these two (A and B = below) important facts:
A mediated mediation is much less than the median.
- Mediation decision is considered only advisory. However, the mediation rules are absolutely binding!
