Is the Insurance Company Dragging Its Feet on My Personal Injury Case?

After filing a claim, you might feel like it is taking forever to have that claim processed. It is naturally frustrating to feel as though you are waiting for months just to get some news about the process and what is going on. If you are interested in getting the insurance company to move at a quicker pace to help you get through this situation a lot faster, there are several steps you can take to make that happen.

Stay In Touch With Your Attorney

After sustaining a personal injury, it’s important that you stay in contact with your attorney throughout the process. Be sure to follow up with your treating physicians and obtain medical documentation that you can provide to your attorney. Another important step in connecting your attorney with your treating physician is to find out who handles medical records that way he/she can provide them to your lawyer. 

If your attorney is not knowledgeable and familiar with your case and doesn’t appear to be working in the early stages of this process, the relationship is probably not going to get any better. If this is the case, it’s time to look for another attorney. At Proner & Proner, we have over 50 years of experience working directly with insurance companies and physicians. We will work diligently to make sure your claim is taken care of swiftly so you can get your life back on track.

Keep Documents Of Everything You Possibly Can

Make note of the date, time, and name of the person you speak to each time you contact the insurance company. It helps to have this information for your records in case something goes wrong and the process continues to drag on. You want to know who is responsible for handling your claim and why it is taking much longer than it should.

Ask To Speak To A Supervisor

If you believe you are simply not making enough progress with the insurance adjuster who is responsible for your claim, you do have the right to ask to speak to their supervisor. While talking to the supervisor, you can let them know that you feel like the company is dragging its feet with processing your claim and that you would like to know what is taking so long. You should have all the important information with you when speaking to the supervisor, including the date when you first made the claim and the number of times you have since contacted the insurance company for updates.

Keep In Regular Contact With The Insurance Company

Do not be afraid to keep contacting the insurance company. If you are not getting the response you want, you should call and ask to speak someone new each time. Attempt to call at least once a week until you are able to gather the information that you want and need.

Hire An Attorney To Make Things Right

Contact an experienced personal injury attorney to help make things right. Your attorney can reach out to the insurance company for you and give them the push they need to get things done a lot faster. If you are not getting through to the insurance adjuster or their supervisor and you are feeling frustrated about the way the insurance company is handling the case, hiring an attorney is your best option.

Some insurance companies move quickly to process claims while others do not. If it feels like your insurance company continues to drag its feet, these are some of the things you can do to expedite the process.
