Protecting the rights of clients. Work with a trusted lawyer to protect your interests.
The biggest mistake policyholders make after experiencing a catastrophic loss, such as fire to a business or home, is to solely rely on the insurance company to conduct the investigation into the claim. From clever and funny television commercials Americans are conditioned to believe that insurance companies are good and benevolent institutions that protect their policyholders when disaster hits. Insurance company ads alternate between beer and Viagra commercials during sports games. These very funny and clever ads, which often employ trustworthy celebrities such as Alex Trebek and Julia Roberts, are effective in convincing people that insurance adjuster are unbiased, and thorough investigator who will take care of you through the claims process like a big fluffy blanket. This is typically NOT the case, however. During the claims process insurance companies, armed with a team of experts, investigate claims with an eye towards delaying and avoiding payment. Unless you have previously been burned on a claim, most policyholders do not understand how the claim process works. Without knowledge of the policy coverage, exclusions, and interpretations, the insured may feel helpless when confronted with the insurance company’s settlement or outright declination of coverage.
