I am not sure if my insurance company will cover me, so I might have to take a lawyer. I already received a letter from his attorney. I am not sure what to do as it seems most attorneys or lawyers represent the plaintiffs in this scenario. On his complaint he said there was snow and ice and that I didn't take the proper steps to clean it up. The problem with his complaint is that no snow or ice was fallen and it was 66 degrees that day. I'm not sure what to do, any help would be appreciated.
Send the letter to your insurance company asap. If you delay, they can use the delay to disclaim. They will tell you what to do next. Only if they disclaim for some reason should you need your own lawyer. If they cover, they will provide a lawyer for you. Again, if you delay in notifying your insurance company, they can disclaim on that basis alone, so notify them today, by phone and by certified mail. RRR.
Send the letter to your insurance company. There is no sense speculating about whether or not they will cover you. There should be a presumption that they will. If they deny coverage they will provide you with a basis for the denial in writing and then you can have an attorney help you determine if that is a valid basis.
You are required to notify your insurance company in a timely manner. If you fail to do this, it may lead to your coverage being disclaimed. Your insurance company will then assign an adjuster and investigator to look into the claim. They will take care of this, but it is important to cooperate with them as much as possible.
If they disclaim you for whatever reason, you must speak with an attorney, to discuss their reasons and the steps that need to be taken.
