4 Possible Causes of Underpaid Claims

Sometimes, your insurance company may not pay you the full amount you need to cover damages after a disaster such as the Bastrop and Steiner Ranch wildfires. There are several potential causes of an underpaid claim, with some stemming from intentional underpayment and others simply resulting from a miscommunication. If your claim has been underpaid, it is important to evaluate the cause and remedy the error, which sometimes requires legal intervention.

If you or someone you know has not received the full amount of insurance benefits you deserve after the Texas wildfires, you may be entitled to seek legal reparations against your insurance company.

Reasons for Underpaid Claims

Whether you’re dealing with an intentionally recalcitrant insurance company or are the victim of an honest mistake, you still have the right to pursue the compensation that you think you need. Four possible causes of an insurance company underpaying on a claim include:

  • An applicant not requesting enough benefits or giving underestimation of damages
  • An insurance company failing to send its own representative to evaluate damage
  • The absence of enough documentation to prove damages
  • An insurance provider intentionally underpaying a claim

These are only four of the many possible causes of underpaid claims, and to get to the bottom of your case, it’s best to consult with an attorney who can evaluate your situation in detail.
