Chicago Fire Insurance Claim Attorney

Having fire damage your home or property is terrifying, and the associated loss tends to be overwhelming. Your home doesn’t have to be destroyed – or even to look particularly damaged – for all of the furnishings to be ruined (through smoke damage) and for devastating structural damage to occur. If you’ve suffered a loss due to fire, call an experienced Chicago fire insurance claim attorney today. 

Filing Your Claim

Your claim to your fire insurance company is your good faith attempt to recover for your losses due to fire. You pay costly insurance premiums for this very reason, and the hope is that you’ll never need to implement that coverage, but in the event you do, it’s good to have the peace of mind that comes with coverage. 

Unfortunately, the insurance company is unlikely to make it easy to obtain a fair payout for your claim, but a dedicated fire insurance claim attorney has the legal insight and experience to help you cut through the insurance company’s red tape and obfuscation and obtain the compensation to which you are entitled.

The Fire Insurance Company

The fire insurance company sold you a fire insurance policy that you trusted to cover you in the event of a fire loss, and it’s disturbing to realize that the company is not making every effort to ensure that you are fully compensated for your covered damages in a timely manner. It’s important to keep in mind that the insurance company is in the business of making money, and stalling the claims process might simply be part of its business plan. Watch for all of the following techniques that fire insurance companies have employed to attempt to get away with paying less:

  • Withholding your payout as leverage to help convince you to accept less than is fair, knowing that you are relying upon timely payment
  • Failing to affirm or deny your coverage in a reasonably timely manner
  • Offering you far less than your claim is reasonably worth
  • Using the arcane language of your insurance contract to confuse you about the coverage you carry – and the provisions included
  • Denying your claim outright without sufficiently investigating or by implementing insufficient investigative techniques
  • Claiming potential arson and seriously delaying the claims process as a result
  • Acknowledging the amount you are owed but failing to pay this amount to you
  • Failing to respond to or even to acknowledge your attempts at correspondence

You’ve suffered a serious loss, and having to deal with the insurance company’s obstacles can make the matter that much more difficult. Don’t let the insurance company wear you down to the point that you accept less than is just – and don’t accept their outright denial as the final word – you have rights, and a skilled fire insurance claim attorney can help you protect them.
