Fire Insurance Lawyers

If you have an unpaid claim or a dispute with your insurance company over your policy, call our legal team for help.

A house fire is a very stressful experience.

One of the first things to do after a fire is to start your insurance claim for the property.

Insurance companies, however, are not the easiest businesses to work with.

Many insurance companies are not as interested in the needs of the policy holder as they should be and will attempt to offer the smallest amount of compensation possible.

In some cases, valid insurance claims have been denied by insurance companies without any explanation.

Such a move can feel like a slap in the face to the homeowner who has invested thousands of dollars in insurance over the course of the years.

If your insurance company has denied your claim, do not lose hope. You may be legally entitled to that claim.

Because insurance companies are for-profit organizations, it is understandable that they would seek to avoid making unnecessary payments to their customers.

While there are valid reasons for the denial of a claim, there have been cases where insurance companies have not done all that was required of them on behalf of the policy holder. Cases of unfair claim handling include:

• Denial of a total loss claim in spite of evidence to the contrary
• Arson allegation
• Threatening the policy holder in an attempt to pay a reduced amount
• Violations of the insurance policy
• Investigations performed in an untimely fashion
• Undervaluation of the damaged property

Those who have suffered the devastation of a house fire will find the help they need to recover their lives at the Law Office of John D. Ameen.

We will take all the necessary steps to ensure you receive the full compensation you deserve.

Insurance companies are not above blaming homeowners for the cause of the fire. To obtain the maximum amount of money for your claim, we will:

  • perform separate investigations of your property
  • estimate the value of your losses
  • determine the actual extent of the damage to your home
