Navigating Proofs of Loss and other Technical Insurance Requirements
The claims process can be technical and complicated, and the insurance company is not necessarily there to pay you the most money. We know how to cut through the delays and red tape associated with the insurance company. For example, it is not a defense for the insurance company to say that they are busy with all the claims. It is not a defense to say that you need to do all your own investigation. It is not a defense to delay in getting expert personnel out to fully investigate and pay your claims. It is not a defense to say your claim doesn’t need investigating. We will not allow the insurance company to get away with these types of responses. Rather, we ensure that the insurance company keeps the promise made to you.
Insurance claims vary in the types of damages you may recover. Depending upon your specific policy, you may be entitled to coverage for damages to your dwelling, including your roof, structure, walls, interior, plumbing, paint, furniture and personal property, as well as outside fencing or other structures, trees and shrubs, expenses for having to live in hotels or other places that require you to expend moneys. You may have coverage for many other items, such as loss of use of the premises, payment for moneys expended in having to live apart from the premises while it is being repaired, among other items, depending upon your specific insurance policy.
