Six Reasons Olympus Will Deny Your Property Claim
The only thing that can make extensive property damage worse is receiving a denial from your insurance company. These are the six most likely reasons that you received a denial:
- Not filing on time. If you fail to meet the strict deadlines imposed by the state, your claim will be denied.
- Non-payment of premiums. Failure to keep up with insurance payments can lead Olympus to deny your claim.
- Inaccurate claims. If the damage you reported to Olympus does not match their observations when they come to do their own inspection, this could lead to a denial.
- Insufficient evidence of damages. You will need to be able to show evidence of the damages you claimed if asked.
- Exclusion clauses. Every property insurance policy has a few exclusions buried in the fine print. Olympus Insurance may try to argue that the cause of your property damage is excluded by your policy.
- Failure to protect property from further loss. Olympus Insurance may argue that your actions left the property exposed to additional damages, such as by failing to place a tarp over a hole in your roof.
If your property claim was denied for any of the above reasons—or for any other reason—our team may be able to help. Let us review your property insurance claim for free to learn more about what our team can do to protect your rights.
How to Dispute an Olympus Property Claim Denial
Disputing a denied claim properly requires you or your lawyer to go through a number of steps, including:
Our team can help you understand your rights as they relate to your specific Olympus Insurance policy. We can determine why Olympus denied your property claim and discuss the additional steps that may be available to you in order to refute it.
Our team can help you document your losses thoroughly and completely. This will involve many pictures, taken from many different angles, and plenty of documentation. An independent appraisal can help provide additional numbers we can use to compare against Olympus’s offer if it is too low to adequately compensate you for your losses.
Disputing Homeowners’ Negligence
If Olympus Insurance alleges that you failed to maintain the property according to the proper codes and standards, we can help you defend yourself against these allegations.
