That should have been noted in the release forms that all insurance companies require an injured person to sign. If it was not noted then it will be at their discretion. The i…njured person has the option to dispute any decision through proscribed legal venues.
The laws vary from state to state concerning time requirements on reporting/responding to losses. Additionally, many states do not have a specific insurance regulation saying …that a claim must be settled in xx amount of days. There are, however, other relavent statutes that apply to claims. For example, the insurance company may be required to acknowledge your claim and assign a claim number to it within 10 days (working days, calendar days). Your best bet is to call your department of insurance to find out what time limits the insurance company is legally bound by. The DOI in your state probably has a web site that you can search around in.

\n. \n Answer \n. \nyes if your ins.co. pays for your car.\n. \n They Can \nEven if they don't pay for your car.

Can a life insurance company take as long as they want before they pay a claim or do they have a time limit?
Answer . \nA time limit is imposed by state law. Consult your local state insurance board.
Answer . Insurance companies are in the business of doing what's best for THEM. They don't care that you are having trouble because of the loss that their client caused.. …A lawyer can help you, or contact your own insurance company to see if they can expedite the process. If those options don't work for you, contact your state insurance commission for advice and possibly assistance.. Actually, one thing that CAN hold up a claim, is the fact that the claims representatives may have to investigate whom is to be held at fault. When the insured and the claimant have conflicting stories do you not deem it fair to look into both parties allegations? Or should the insurance always just pay out whatever to whomever and then have to raise premiums for many policyholders?
\nOnce you send in the beneficiary claim form and an official death certificate, the benefits are usually paid within one to two weeks.
After filing a claim it should not take more than 30 days. They just need time to find out if it were an accicdent.
Not all insurance companies take so long. One thing that it could be is the majority of the carriers send out a letter to the insureds asking if they have any other coverage. …Most people just ignore these ... I use to. So the claim is just put in a "holding" spot until they find out if you have other coverage or if they are your only coverage. Usually from that point things should move quickly unless the doctor has not coded it properly - it's done with CPT codes. Even the carriers overlook things. If your insurance company has any online services - sign up for that so you be can go online and update the majority of your information before anything or claim ever has to be paid.
Once you properly file your claim it only take a few short weeks to get your settlement. Contact the agent that sold the policy and enlist his help. If not available just call… the claims department at the life company and file the claim.
It all depends on the state the claim is filed. If a state does not have a set amount of time of the company to investigate and make a decision on a claim, they are required t…o do it in a "reasonable" amount of time, depending on what time of auto claim it is.

In Auto Parts and Repairs
Depends on what insurance company it is.
In Auto Insurance Claims
The general answer, absent a contractual or statutory requirement is, "a reasonable time". When a car is determined to be a total loss, it essentially means that the insurer… has decided that the cost of repair exceeds (usually, some statutory) percentage of the actual cash value of the car. In that instance, the law requires that the be declared to be a total loss. The time consuming part of that process can be in determining the actual cash value of a car of like kind, quality, and other features. While there are commercial guides to help in that determination, often there is a period of negotiation with the owner as to the final value. Many States provide that once a claim has been resolved by agreement as to the value, and all necessary documents have been signed (in this case, proof of claim, title certificate, and other documents that the State or the insurance company may reasonable require), payment must be made within 30 days. However, the period may be shorter or longer and State law will govern.
In Auto Insurance
It depends on the severity and complexity of the loss. They might pay you in 3 days or 30 days or 60 days. There is no wayof knowing without the details of your loss.
In general, insurance policies will have a grace period within which premiums can be paid after the regular due date. If the premium is paid within the grace period, coverage …continues as normal. If not paid by the end of the grace period, the policy lapses. If a claim occurs after the policy has lapsed, there will be no coverage. The policy may contain language limiting your ability to make a claim if the premium has not been made on time, although the grace period has not yet expired. Therefore, the precise answer to your question will be dictated by tje language of the policy. In all events, you should certainly make the premium payment before the grace period expires and the coverage lapses for non-payment of premium.
You will continue to pay insurance premium to renew the policy,irrespective of the claim to be submitted after truck accident.
