Insurance Companies Have A Duty Of Cooperation
Your insurance policy is a contract between you and the insurance company. When you sign on the bottom line, you agree to the provisions, and the courts will uphold the four corners of the contract. One of the standard provisions of all policies is that you agree to cooperate with the insurance company regarding information they require when reviewing a claim.
If you have been notified that your claim has been delayed pending further information, it is a good practice to seek legal counsel of an experienced insurance litigation attorney.

Don’t Provide Any Documentation Until A Lawyer Can Review Your Claim
There may be some types of information the insurance company is requesting that appears to be outside of their scope of “need-to-know” regarding your claim. If you have any doubts about why personal or financial information is required on a property damage, personal injury, commercial or life insurance claim, don’t submit any documents until you know your rights.
