Review Your Insurance Policy
Every commercial, homeowners, and renter’s insurance policy is different. While you may assume that any damage to your property is covered, most standard policies don’t cover catastrophes such as earthquakes and floods.
If your home or business has recently been damaged by water, a natural disaster such as fire or wind, a break in, appliance malfunction, or other event, review your insurance policy to make sure the damage is covered. If you need assistance, we are happy to help you review your policy during a free consultation—just give us a call!
What to Do If Your Property Has Been Damaged
The first thing you should do following a loss is to ensure the property is safe from further damage. Make temporary repairs if you can and cover damage to the exterior with plastic sheeting or tarpaulin. Do whatever you can without risking your own safety in the process. Save any receipts or bills related to goods and services purchased to make the repairs—your insurance company will reimburse all reasonable repair costs.
Next, immediately contact Legal One Law Group, APC, APC. We will file the claim on your behalf, provided your insurance company with all of the necessary information, meet with the claims adjuster and negotiate a fair settlement on your behalf.
What Might Covered by Your Homeowners Policy
If your home has recently sustained significant damage, you may be wondering what expenses will be covered. Depending on the scope of the damage, you may be forced to make significant changes to your property, during which time you will not be able to safely remain at home. Fortunately, this and other expenses are likely eligible for reimbursement.
Expenses that may be covered by your insurance company include:
- Relocation costs, such as temporary housing, clothing, and food
- Replacing any personal property lost, such as appliances, electronics, and jewelry
- Structural damage to your home
- Tree, shrubbery, and debris removal
- Water damage caused by leaks
- Upgrades required to get the building under code
Dealing with Claims Adjusters
Though insurance was designed to protect property owners, the reality is that most insurance companies are more concerned with their bottom line than with the well-being of their clients. Insurance companies notoriously deny valid claims in the hope that the policyholder will not contest the denial. Clients can fight back against unethical tactics with the help of our experienced attorneys.
We assist policyholders with insurance matters such as:
- Denied claims
- Undervalued claims
- Delayed payments
- Threats of cancellation
Denying, delaying, or otherwise trying to throw out a valid insurance claim is an act of bad faith on the insurance company’s part. If your home or business has been damaged due to circumstances outside of your control and your policy claims to cover the damage, there is no reason your insurance carrier should not cooperate. If your claims adjuster refuses to pay you an adequate amount to settle your claim, we can take legal action against them on your behalf.
