Homeowners Insurance Dispute

If your home has been damaged by a natural disaster, the last thing you want to worry about is whether or not your insurance company will act appropriately to ensure your home is repaired. Homeowners’ insurance is designed to protect homeowners when faced with a disaster, but, unfortunately, insurance carriers often fail policyholders by delaying, denying, or disputing necessary repairs.

Homeowners insurance is intended to cover the cost of repairs and other expenses when a home is damaged by events such as:

  • Hail
  • Fire
  • Plumbing leaks and other water losses
  • Freezing and ice dam damage
  • Hurricanes
  • Windstorms
  • Tornadoes

Insurance companies are quite willing to accept your premiums, but when the time comes to pay a claim, they all too often act in bad faith. Bad faith is the legal term applied when an insurance company fails to act in good faith and fair dealing to their insured policyholders.   Examples of bad faith conduct can include circumstances where an insurance company unreasonably delays a claim, or refuses the pay the correct amount.
