Common Insurance Company Delay Tactics in Florida
When submitting a claim for insurance coverage, companies often caution about the process taking time due to different factors. However, when you need the funds or assistance urgently due to an accident or medical emergency, delays can be especially frustrating and disheartening. What can be even more infuriating is that insurance companies are doing this deliberately as a tactic to avoid paying out claims.
Some of the tactics they employ to slow your insurance payout include:
- Delaying responses: Insurance companies often delay responding to submitted claims in order to prolong the process, leaving you feeling frustrated and helpless.
- Unreasonable delay of investigation/processing: Adjusters and representatives may stall their investigation or processing of your claim, causing further delays in receiving a payout from your insurance company.
- Changing representatives/adjusters: Insurance companies often switch up their representatives or adjusters when dealing with certain claims. This can cause confusion and add additional time to the whole process.
- Requesting unnecessary documentation/records: They may request documents that aren’t pertinent to your case or records that don’t help establish proof for what happened. These are requests typically made in an effort to slow down the claim resolution process even more.
- Requesting information incrementally: When filing a claim, they will sometimes ask for all information one piece at a time instead of providing everything upfront. This tactic creates yet another hurdle as you try to find each piece of requested documentation individually.
Why do they do this? One can speculate that they want you to get fed up, drop the claim altogether, and pay for the damage out of pocket, so they hold onto their money. For reasons like this, it pays to have a skilled lawyer on your side to fight for you and move things along.
Avoid the Consequences of Delayed Insurance Benefits — Call Crawford Law Today!
Delayed insurance benefits can have a serious impact on your life. When you expect an insurance payout to pay for medical bills or car repairs, not receiving the funds can put you in a bind.

In any of these situations, here are some ways that you can be inconvenienced:
- Having to delay necessary medical treatments due to lack of financial resources
- Having to borrow money from family or friends in order to cover unexpected costs associated with the accident or medical emergency
- Paying out of pocket for car repairs and auto parts so your vehicle will remain safe and functional
- Having to make difficult decisions regarding which bills should get paid first
- Being unable to participate in activities or avoiding large purchases due to financial limitations
