Best Time To Call You Back:

When you take out an insurance policy, under the law you are owed the duty of utmost good faith. This means that both you and the insurer must act in the utmost good faith when you take out an insurance policy. This involves meeting your duty of disclosure by telling the insurer anything that is relevant before taking out an insurance policy.

For example, if you take out a motor vehicle policy you must tell your insurer if you have wheel and suspension modifications on your vehicle. By being open, honest and transparent you’re acting in the utmost good faith which will make it more difficult for an insurer not to pay your claim.

You don’t need to tell an insurer everything though. For example, you don’t need to tell them anything that they already know about you based on your previous dealings or anything that is common knowledge.

Our insurance law experts have experience and depth of knowledge in a wide range of insurance issues, claims, underwriting and policy disputes. We’ve helped clients who need legal advice on everything from complex commercial disputes to car accident claims and specialise in large, complicated and serious insurance matters. We don’t want to waste your time, so it’s worth knowing that we only take on insurance claims or disputes of more than $50,000. We have handled over 200 medium to large insurance claims with a 98% success rate. This means we have helped our clients to recover over $10 million in claims.

We understand how important it is to deal with insurance claims quickly while still being technically correct and responsive to your needs. Whatever type of insurance your claim relates to, our personal lawyers can:

  • Prepare and submit your claim.

  • Follow the progress of your claim to help you get the best possible outcome as quickly as possible.
  • Defend you in the case of a fraudulent claim.
  • Represent you in a claim of fraudulent or non-fraudulent misrepresentation or non-disclosure.
  • Interpret the insurance policy for you.
  • Give you advice on how to manage your claim.
  • Give you advice on any regulatory issues that arise out of your claim.
  • Represent you in a dispute with your insurance adviser.
  • Represent you in a case before the Superannuation Complaints Tribunal, the Supreme Court, the Federal Court or any other legal authority.

Fire and Theft Insurance Claims

Fire and theft insurance protects your car or other assets if they’re stolen or catch on fire. It can also cover you if other property is damaged as a result of the fire or theft. Depending on your insurance policy you may be able to claim either the market value of your asset or an agreed value if the accident wasn’t your fault. If you have a motor vehicle accident, this may also cover you if you can identify who the other driver is and they aren’t insured. Our car accident lawyers can guide you through this process.

Property Damage Insurance Claims

If your property, whether it’s your house, car or something else, is damaged by someone else’s action or negligence you may be able to make a property damage insurance claim. Depending on your policy, your insurer may need to determine who was at fault before a claim can be processed.

Life and Disability Insurance Claims

There are several different types of insurance policy that can protect you if you’re injured, unable to work or die. These include life insurance, trauma insurance, income protection insurance and total and permanent disability insurance. These type of claims often involve disputes about the assessment of the disability or the income that you should receive.

Motor Vehicle Insurance

Whether you drive a car, van, truck or motorcycle, if you or your vehicle is injured in an accident you may be able to make an insurance claim. Even if the accident is your fault, it’s important to get the contact details for anyone else involved as this will help with your claim. If you’re in doubt about what to do, our auto accident lawyers can help you.
