What Is a Claim Letter?
A Claim Letter is a typed or handwritten document sent by the party to an agreement to their counterpart to demand compliance with the terms and conditions of their contract if they believe their interests regarding the subject matter of the deal were violated. This letter is used in multiple industries by individuals and companies alike - you can request monetary compensation from your insurer, a refund from the store if you received merchandise of low quality, or ask a government agency to award you benefits if you believe you were treated unfairly.

Types of Claim Letters
The documents below can be prepared to ensure your contractual rights are protected whether your insurance provider owes you money or the contractor did not perform the services promised in writing. Additionally, you can refuse to agree with the claim sent to you if you complete and mail a "denial of claim" to the other party.
- Letter of Claim. You can use this generic template to request your counterpart, business partner, or supplier to fulfill their contractual duties. Whatever is owed to you - money, completion of services, or replacement of the substandard item you paid for - this document will serve as a formal demand that asserts your rights.
- Claim Denial Letter. If you received a claim from a customer or business associate with a request to pay compensation or somehow pay for the damage you have inflicted, yet you believe you are not liable for it and the statements in the claim are false, you can reject the demands using this letter.
- Diminished Value Claim Letter. This document will help you request money from your insurance provider after the accident you are not responsible for - for instance, if your vehicle costs less now than it did before, you may obtain compensation for the value it lost in the car crash.
- Insurance Claim Letter for Reimbursement. In case you had to pay for medical treatment and medication using your own money, you may seek compensation from your insurance company if the injury or illness you had included in your insurance policy coverage.
