McHenry, IL asked in Insurance Bad Faith and Insurance Defense for Illinois

Q: I filed an appeal with my past insurance, and won. They won't send me a letter or email showing the records. allowed?

I filed an appeal with my past insurance, and won. They agree to remove the misrepresented/Fraud they marked on the claim as well as remove the claim so it would not effect me getting insurance with other company's. When I asked for a letter to show proof, or a email they said they can't or find a way to. I want the records so if I have to dispute with the LexisNexis Burro that is affecting other company's I can. Am I allowed to demand that letter or email or can insurances refuse those kind of request?

A: An Illinois attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for three weeks. There aren't details here on what the matter involved, and who handled the appeal. However, if you won an appeal, whether in court or through an arbitration tribunal, that would usually involve receiving a written decision. If there is a formal decision, or other form of written proof, retain those in your records. If not, you could consult with a local attorney about your options in receiving some form of written confirmation. Good luck
