At Shebell & Shebell, We Get Maximum Compensation For Victims of Fire Loss
If you have recently suffered losses due to a fire, you should seek legal representation immediately. You will be in a vulnerable position, and blindly trusting your insurance company can have serious financial consequences. Insurers will often look for reasons to deny your claim or pay out less than you deserve under your policy.
We Represent Victims in All Types of Fire Loss Claims
If your insurance company has wrongfully denied your fire insurance claim—we are here to help.
If your claim is not covered by an insurance policy, we can assist in recovering damages from the parties responsible for the fire. We utilize renowned specialists to identify who or what was responsible for causing the fire. Some of the leading causes of fires include: defective appliances, faulty electrical wiring, damaged gas lines, clogged fireplaces, poor vent maintenance, and malfunctioning furnaces. If you were burned in the fire, you may also be entitled to recover damages from the responsible party for your injuries.
If you are underinsured, and sustained damages beyond the policy limit, you may have a case for insurance malpractice. We can assist you with proving that your insurance agent or broker negligently failed to procure adequate coverage to cover your losses.
If your home, apartment, garage, or place of business was damaged in a fire, we can help you to recover the maximum amount. A fire may result only result in physical damage to your property, but also other types of economic damage, including lost income due to interruption of your business, and costs of re-establishing operations.
Our Attorneys Stand Up To Insurance Company Lawyers
Many policyholders experience unexpected resistance by the insurer when seeking to recover on a claim. Your insurer may suspect that you have committed arson or insurance fraud. If your insurer is questioning your honesty, asking you to sign documents or testify at a deposition, you have the right to be represented by a lawyer. These are some signs that your insurance company is questioning your honesty:
- They are asking questions about the value of your property or its contents
- They are scrutinizing your financial situation, possibly requesting bank records to establish motive for insurance fraud
- They are asking if you have an alibi for the date of the fire
- They are questioning your friends and family about the contents of your home or business
An insurance company may even give evidence obtained through this type of questioning to the police, who can then open an investigation against you.
If you or a loved one has suffered damages due to smoke or fire, you have the right to representation. The experienced lawyers at Shebell & Shebell are on your side. Call us at 866-957-5237 or contact us online today.
