The same as any claim. You just call the insurance company and notify them of your loss. If coverage is available then they will assign you a claim number and begin to process your claim.
It depends on why they didn't pay the claim. If you have the coverage and followed the requirements, like making a police report, cooperating with the insurance company as well as the police then you should have no problem with a claim, if it was in fact a theft. Otherwise you can always sue the company or file a complaint with your state department of insurance if you feel you were denied coverage you paid for.

You bet. See, it works like this ... you pay for a service (insurance coverage) ... as long as you keep paying on time, you have coverage.

Some insurance companies automatically cancel anybody for filing an accident claim.

If you don't the new insurance company can cancel your coverage and possibly not cover any of YOUR losses. They might also consider it to be fraud.
