Fighting for Homeowners Who Are Victims of Bad Faith Insurance Practices
For most of us, our homes are our biggest financial investment and a place of great emotional attachment. Homeowners’ insurance is an important means of protecting this investment. You pay your insurance premiums with the understanding that you will be protected if your home is ever damaged. When your home sustains damage, you depend on your insurance company to live up to its end of the bargain.
In too many cases, insurance companies refuse to make good on their policies. They act unreasonably, needlessly delaying claims or claiming that the damages to your home are excluded under the policy. Many insurance companies make a practice of delaying or minimizing claims with the understanding that many claimants will simply quit. When insurance companies engage in bad faith practices, it can cause lasting damage to you and your family. If your insurance company is failing to make good on the terms of the policy, you need an attorney who will hold them accountable.
