Insurance Lawyers Abbotsford - You are eligible to go to court if an insurance firm violates the terms of a written contract. However, the courts would normally only force the insurance firm to pay the amounts owed in accordance to the contract.
If an insurance firm has withheld payments intentionally, you can be eligible for extra-contractual damages.
