    Why you need a lawyer for an insurance claim

    An insurance company may deny a claim by falsely alleging you failed to cooperate with their investigation or other step in evaluating and adjusting a claim. Sometimes, an insured may fail to cooperate with duties required under the insurance policy and the carrier can legitimately reserve its rights to continue working on the claim. Unfortunately, insurance adjusters also use those same duties to allege falsely you failed to cooperate to either cover up failures on their end or to simply delay or deny payment on your claim. In these cases, you should hire a Denver bad faith insurance attorney.

    What is failure to cooperate with an insurance claim?

    Your insurance policy creates obligations for both you and your insurer when you or somebody else files a claim. The insurance company has several duties to act in good faith and investigate, evaluate and promptly pay on claims. You have a duty to cooperate with your insurance company regarding the claim. If you fail to cooperate with your own insurance company, it can delay payments until it can complete its investigation or even deny paying entirely. 

    What if you file a claim against someone else's insurance company?

    Colorado is an at-fault or tort state, which means when somebody else causes damages to you, you must pursue the liable party and its insurance to recover. You do not owe contractual duties to someone else’s insurer, so filing a claim against another driver’s carrier does not carry the same obligations. You do not have a legal duty to cooperate with the insurance company. 

    When you file a claim against another driver’s insurer, you should not lie but you also do not owe them any information. You are free to withhold information, turn down settlement offers and refuse to give recorded statements. You have no contractual obligations to that carrier. They can, however, use any information you give them to deny or reduce the value of your claim. 

    When is failure to cooperate legitimate?

    Failure to cooperate may be legitimate when a policyholder fails to provide information or evidence after filing a claim or another person files a claim. An insurance company can request unreasonable cooperation that defeats their failure to cooperate allegation; however, it is often best to cooperate with your insurer even if the request seems unreasonable or burdensome. After all,  you want the insurer to pay your claim. If you believe a request exceeds the bounds of the contract, you should talk to a Denver failure to cooperate attorney.
