Insurance disputes are on the rise and can occur in a wide variety of circumstances, but most commonly relate to an insurance company’s refusal to pay out when a claim is made against a policy. For example, an insurer may refuse to pay out when a building is damaged or destroyed or fire if there is a question mark over how the fire was caused.
We act for policyholders who want to challenge an insurer’s decision not to provide cover. This can either be challenged through the Courts however the most cost-effective and efficient way of challenging an insurer’s decision is often by making a complaint to the Financial Ombudsman.
