Conyers, GA asked in Insurance Bad Faith and Contracts for Georgia

Q: Can my home owners policy be cancelled if it’s an open claim?

I provided a new form of payment method to cover the payment via their portal. Their portal did not update to reflect the cc on file and yet my payment was not paid due to their portal error. They refuse to correct this issue. Now I am being penalized for their negligent!

A: A Georgia attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for a week. An attorney may want to examine the matter in more detail, in terms of the set-up of the portal, your actions, their actions, and other possible factors. You could try to arrange a free initial consult with a local attorney. Depending on what's at stake in terms of the size of the claim, you could discuss with the attorney if litigation is a viable option. Keep in mind that if your matter requires litigation, it's possible that law firms might not handle something like this on a contingency basis - which could mean funding a legal action on an hourly fee basis. An experienced attorney should be able to outline this and other key issues, and help you identify your best options. Good luck
