Why do you need a lawyer to help with your insurance claim? Filing an insurance claim and quickly receiving reimbursement for damages is no longer the reality for most policyholders. For property insurance, a premium is paid to protect your property and cover damages in full. Many policyholders are disappointed when they file an insurance claim and determine that the insurers pay the lowest amount possible. This is why we recommend consulting with an insurance lawyer when you have filed an insurance claim.
HOW WILL MY CLAIM BE EVALUATED?
Insurance companies have their insurance adjusters that assess your property damage. Once the evaluation process begins, we advise hiring your insurance lawyer or public adjuster to protect your interests and make sure you are compensated appropriately. The insurance company will ask you detailed questions and other involved parties to determine the cause of the property damage. The adjuster will take photos and videos and create reports based on the property damage evidence. If the information provided is slightly incorrect, out of date, or inaccurate, the insurance company can use this to lower the claim payout.
WHAT TYPES OF PROPERTY DAMAGE CLAIMS CAN AN INSURANCE LAWYER HELP ME WITH?
A lawyer that specializes in insurance claims can help with various types of property damage claims. They understand the nuances of insurance policies and are experts at understanding what insurance adjusters are looking for. Some of the property damage cases include:
- Water Damage
- Storm Damage
CAN AN INSURANCE LAWYER STILL HELP ME, EVEN IF MY CLAIM WAS REJECTED?
Suppose your insurance company denies your claim or does not pay the full value of your damages. You do not have to accept this judgment if you feel that your claim is wrongfully denied or undervalued. An insurance lawyer will work on your behalf to obtain the payout that you are entitled to based on your insurance policy.
WHEN IS THE BEST TIME TO CONTACT AN INSURANCE LAWYER?
Hiring an insurance lawyer is the best way to ensure that your property damage is appropriately documented and receive the maximum payout. Choosing not to work with an insurance lawyer can result in an unfair claim settlement.
