A refused insurance claim can be devastating to you and your family’s finances. Stacks can help you get the payout you deserve from your insurance provider.
When you take out an insurance policy, you expect to have peace of mind in the fact that you will be covered in the event that you suffer a loss or injury to yourself or a family member, damage to your property, or become ill with a serious illness. However, occasionally situations may arise in which your insurance company refuses to pay your claim.
If your insurance provider is refusing to pay your benefits
If your insurance provider is refusing to pay out your insurance claim, you may have a legal case to take action against them. The lawyers at Stacks Law Firm have experience advising and providing assistance to those who wish to take further legal action in cases where they believe they have wrongly been denied the money they deserve from their insurance company. Types of insurance we can help our clients claim for include:
- Home & Contents Insurance
- Total and Permanently Disabled (TPD) Insurance (See our TPD Claims section for further information)
- Motor Vehicle Insurance
- Business Insurance
- Travel Insurance
- Sickness and Accident Insurance
- Trauma Insurance
- Death Benefits Insurance
- Income Protection & Superannuation
What are the first steps in taking further legal action?
- Your first point of call should be lodging a complaint to the Financial Ombudsman Service (FOS).
- If your insurance claim is refused by your superannuation company, then you should lodge your complaint to the Superannuation Complaints Tribunal (SCT).
- If your matter is not resolved via either of these avenues, then the next step is taking your case to court.
Stacks Law Firm will be able to look at your case and provide you with honest and professional advice as to how much compensation you could potentially recoup as a result of taking legal action, as well as the best course of action for your particular situation.
