Austin Insurance Coverage Dispute Lawyer
When you have reliably paid your monthly insurance premiums, you rightfully expect that the insurance company will honor its obligations in the case of a disaster, accident, health crisis or death. Policyholders may feel victimized a second time if the insurer denies the claim, substitutes a lower benefit or takes an unreasonable amount of time to pay.
Trying to get the benefits that should have been paid to you without dispute can be daunting and frustrating during an already stressful time in your life. If you are getting the runaround or if your claim has been denied, our attorneys can intervene with the insurance company to negotiate forcefully and effectively on your behalf. We are not afraid to take on the largest insurers, and we have a good track record of results in a wide range of insurance coverage disputes.

Representing Policyholders In Insurance Disputes
Insurance companies have a vested interest in paying as little as possible in resolving claims, even when the claim is covered under the terms of the policy. Some insurers systematically deny or delay payments, knowing that a certain percentage of claimants (especially those without legal representation) will take no for an answer or accept a lower payment.
The insurance companies know that these tactics will not work with claimants who are represented by qualified and experienced attorneys. They know that a persistent attorney will not back down. They know that such an attorney will demand full compensation and will be willing and prepared to go to trial if necessary to get satisfaction. Shaw Cowart’s involvement in these disputes routinely results in a fair and timely resolution of claims.
Storm damage is one of the most common scenarios of insurance coverage disputes. Some insurers are notorious for slow-pay tactics or denying these claims outright without any basis. We handle homeowner claims for hurricane damage, wind damage, flood damage, fire loss and other covered catastrophes. We also handle other types of insurance coverage disputes, such as health insurance, life insurance and uninsured/underinsured motorist claims.
