What To Do After Your Claim Has Been Denied

If you have to file an auto insurance claim, then something's already gone wrong. If your auto insurance claim is denied, that's just one bad thing on top of another. If you need to know what to do after your claim was denied, you've come to the right place. If your car insurance denied your claim or if the other party's insurance denied the claim, your options are the same. You can either appeal the claim denial and work with an auto insurance adjuster to have the claim reconsidered or you can accept the decision and your financial responsibility.
