Home ownership is one of the most joyous and most stressful obligations one can have. With the growth of urban populations, home ownership can come in various shapes and sizes, including houses, condominiums, and townhomes. Whatever type of property you own, you likely also purchased a homeowners insurance policy to protect your investment. For many Americans, their home is their largest and most important investment, and its safekeeping is almost always entrusted to an insurance company.
Homeowners insurance is meant to provide peace of mind when an unexpected event causes a homeowner to suffer loss to a home or its contents. Unfortunately, that peace is not always provided when disaster does strike. When a homeowner makes a claim against their policy, insurance companies can often put up so many obstacles, it may make you wonder why you signed up for it in the first place.
Challenge insurance bad faith
By law, insurance companies must not delay or deny claims covered under a homeowners’ policy without showing good cause. Despite the many regulations governing the insurance industry and the trust their customers have placed in them, many carriers use excuses and tactics to delay, deny, or “low-ball” claims. At Raizner Slania, we are familiar with the tactics these insurance carriers use and have been repeatedly successful in making them pay the full value of a claim. These companies have a strong legal staff on their side; you need one on yours.
