We seem to be getting more and more inquiries from people about problems they are having with their insurance companies. Insurance disputes seem to be increasing at an alarming rate.

The insurance industry is undergoing a rapid transformation. Many companies are merging. Many are experiencing lower revenues from investments due to the current state of the economy. As a result, many insurance companies are questioning claims that wouldn’t have been given a glance a few short years ago. Now more than ever, insurance companies are looking for ways to save money. Some do so by taking avery conservative stand when dealing with their own insured’s claims.

Insurance claims have become more complex because of new State and Federal laws. Claims that a few years ago might be considered standard and handled within days are now taking weeks or months to resolve due to the conflicts presented by these new laws.

South Carolina is a no-fault state. Everyone who is injured in an automobile, motorcycle, tractor-trailer, semi-truck, bicycle or pedestrian accident in South Carolina is entitled to South Carolina no-fault benefits with few exceptions. But obtaining benefits can take months while an adjuster wades though the multitude of conflicting law to determine if the insurance company should pay for your loss. You may have excess or coordinated coverage. Your company may argue it is secondary not primary for paying benefits. Federal ERISA law may play a role in your claim, your employer may be self-insured for your health insurance and it may refuse to pay. An insurance company or insurance administrator may put a lien on your claim or exert subrogation rights against you.

Consulting with an attorney will help you fully understand your rights. You might consider calling an attorney before you even file your claim to obtain advice that will streamline the process and eliminate problems before they become an obstacle to resolving your claim.

The Clekis Law Firm, P.A. handles all types of insurance claims. We have helped thousands of people to get the compensation that they are entitled to — not what their insurance company may have told them they were owed. We are proud our ability to cut through the red tape to get our clients results. Call us with your questions and your problems and let us go to work for you.

Many people do not have the money to hire a lawyer to protect their rights. You probably didn’t have this unexpected event figured into your budget. Now you may have high medical bills, probably lost wages, and many other financial worries caused by this situation. We believe it is unfair for these considerations to prevent you from obtaining the full amount you are due under the law in compensation for your losses.

Attorneys put up large sums of money on these complex cases in order to hire experts, take depositions, gather evidence and oppose the lawyers of large insurance firms. The South Carolina personal injury attorney you choose must be able to cover the expenses for such battles. Not only does The Clekis Law Firm, P.A. have the resources, we have the experience, skill and dedication to successfully resolve your case.
