A Simple Guide To Writing Insurance Appeals Letters
Surviving a car accident, experiencing health issues, having a fire, flood, hailstorm, or hurricane destroy your home—or any other reason that caused you to file an insurance claim—can be devastating. Even more infuriating is receiving a response that your claim was denied. Stress no more—DoNotPay will help you write insurance appeal letters any time you need them!
How To Make the Unmistakable Insurance Claim and Avoid Its Denial
Insurance companies are known for finding absurd reasons to avoid paying the money they owe. Insurers are detail-oriented perfectionists who will look for the tiniest error in your claim so they can reject it.
Here are some tips on what to do before filing a claim that can increase your chances of getting the money:
- Report the incident right away—You won’t leave any details that way, and the insurer will know the incident was serious and unintentional
- Check your policy details—It’s important to check your insurance coverage details before fixing the damaged object because it may be the insurer’s responsibility
- Gather the right documentation—Having all the necessary documents in one place can make filing insurance claim go faster
- Give truthful information—Include only the facts and don’t exaggerate
- Talk to your insurance company agent or representative—Once you collect everything you need and get your facts straight, call your agent to discuss the claim filing process
To make an indisputable insurance claim, you can’t miss a single document or information about the accident. Take a look at the table below to see what you need to file a perfect claim:

- Policy number and name of the policyholder
- Accurate contact information
- Details about the denied insurance claim
- Date of the denial letter and stated reasons for denial
- Name and contact information of the person confirming your claim was wrongfully denied
