Getting You Justice If Crop Insurance Fails You
Crop insurance helps ensure that agricultural producers have income to rely on when circumstances out of their control threaten their livelihood. Unfortunately, resolving crop insurance claims can be more complex than getting compensation for an injury or a motor vehicle accident. The US Department of Agriculture reinsures and subsidizes crop insurance policies, so claims and appeals often must go through the gauntlet of the Risk Management Agency.
Litigating an unfairly denied claim demands close understanding of the crop insurance system and a skilled hand in litigation. Farmers and agricultural producers have trusted John D. Tallman, PLC, to resolve their legal matters for decades. If you have concerns regarding your crop insurance claim, contact our firm today.
Protect Yourself From Unfair Insurance Practices
You may want to believe that insurance companies are on your side, but the reality is that they will avoid compensating a claim if they can avoid it. A denied claim can erase the fruits of months of toil, leaving you without a sizable part of your income.
Before reaching litigation, a crop insurance dispute may be resolved through mediation or arbitration. Almost all appeals between a farmer and a private insurer must go through arbitration under the terms of the Common Crop Insurance Policy. Farmers seeking appeals have a limited window to file a demand for arbitration with their insurance provider and initiate the arbitration process.
Our firm can assist you with preparing and filing the demand for arbitration on time. Our legal team has a sterling record of success negotiating on behalf of our clients in arbitration, and our extensive knowledge of the crop insurance system has helped many clients resolve disputes before reaching litigation.
