Experienced Jackson, MS Insurance Dispute Attorneys
Tireless representation that Mississippi insureds can rely on when devastation takes hold
It’s no secret to anyone that the goal of insurance companies and their agents is to make money. As such, they do everything in their power to persuade you to take out a policy with coverage that may or may not be in your best interest. It may not even provide you with the protection they claimed you would receive as they glossed over the big picture explanation of benefits. Up-selling policies that cover you, your home, your car, and your business is what it’s all about for the insurance industry.
You’re promised that if you become disabled, you’ll receive necessary benefits to ease a lifetime of tough road ahead. If you die, they assure you that your family will be protected from becoming homeless and falling on harder times. Yet when there’s been an accident, a natural disaster, or you experience another loss triggering the need to use your policy benefits, the insurance company doesn’t want to know you. They stall, deny your claim by alleging some exclusion in the fine print, or they offer a pittance in comparison to the damages you have endured.
