I submitted a claim to a government entity insurer where the complaint clearly depicts the dates of his clients involvement from the first to the last incident. I had calculated the 45 day deadline to be June 6 2017 following this outline in my complaint as well. The response letter was nothing more than the insurer informing me that my claim was filed late. The date of incident the adjuster was going by was the incident that led me to call his clients to begin with yet my encounter with his clients didnt happen for another nine days. Is this a common tactic for these people and what should my next move be?
Get counsel or be prepared to be stymied at every opportunity the defendant has.
The other side has rights too.
The insurance company has a contract to honor
But nothing more than that
Hire an experienced attorney. Government claims are full of landmines and deadlines and you don't want to mess around.
