That kind of belief comes about because dealing directly with an insurance company on a claim can often be frustrating and nonproductive. Florida has a special statute that provides that when an insurance company fails to pay a valid claim on behalf of one of its insureds that the insured has the right to hire a lawyer who is paid a court awarded fee against the insurance company. This is true regardless of what kind of insurance claim is involved. If a life insurance company refuses to pay an claim within 60 days of the time a death occurs, the beneficiary under the policy is entitled to hire a lawyer and the insurance company is responsible for that lawyer's attorney fees. Insurance Claims against insurance companies can arise in a variety of circumstances in addition to life insurance claims. People insure themselves to protect against significant medical bills, disability, and for a variety of other reasons. The law provides that an insurance company, under those circumstances, has a contractual liability to pay valid claims. Insurance policies are supposed to be written to protect insureds and not the insurance companies. Therefore, the law provides that every insurance policy, because it is written by the insurance company and not by the insured, is interpreted to protect the insured whenever possible. When an insurance company tries to wiggle out of its responsibility to its insured, the law is designed to protect the insured when a dispute arises. It is important that the lawyer who is hired to represent an insured against an insurance company be familiar with insurance law and litigation in general.

According to the new article, insurers and law enforcement officials are monitoring social media posts to check for insurance fraud. As the article notes, people sometimes file a police report, contact their insurance company to let them know about the accident and then make posts about it on Facebook, Twitter and other sites. Unfortunately, the article says, if people reveal incorrect details about the accident, the insurance claim could end up being denied. Interestingly, 4AutoInsuranceQuote is not the only website that has posted an article about the connection between social media posts and possible denials of insurance; the CBS News website also ran a story on the same topic, claiming that because so many people are on social media, the sites are routinely monitored for evidence of fraud. An article on the Claims Journal website agrees with this premise, stating that investigation and social networking research are a required tool. As the new article on 4AutoInsuranceQuote noted, insurance companies could also possibly check a drivers social media account for photos of what the vehicle looked like prior to the accident. And if the driver was injured during the accident, adjusters could possibly look at current photos to see if and how the incident has impacted the persons life. There are currently no laws or restrictions on an insurance adjusters ability to scour social media sites for information to aid their investigation, the new article noted, adding that in the laws eyes, any information listed on public websites, such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Tumblr and others is fair game. Often times, the first step in a claims investigation is to run a simple Google search on the claimant to reveal all of their social media profiles.
