An insurance company receives thousands of claims every day, most of which are promptly denied regardless of the claim’s validity. This is an extremely profitable practice for these million-dollar companies because most insured parties never refute the denial. For example, for every 100 claims an insurance company denies, about five insured parties choose to refute the denial. Of these contested denials, the insurance company may decide to pay on four of the claims. Even if the fifth party files and wins a lawsuit, including substantial punitive damages, this practice still works in the best economic interest of the insurance company because it still avoided paying out on 95 valid claims. Furthermore, insurance companies are multi-million dollar businesses with the resources to prolong a case until the victim is forced to take an insufficient settlement or gives up completely.
