What Will You Do If Your Insurance Company Denies Your Property Loss Claim?
Sustaining serious damage to your home or business is an ordeal that no one wants to go through. It is painful to see the damage to the structure and the loss of your belongings. And while you may get started immediately on the cleanup, you know that the repairs are going to take months to complete. This is not the time for your insurance company to refuse to pay for your losses.
Ambarchyan Law helps homeowners and business owners get through real estate insurance claim disputes involving water damage and other types of property losses, including fires and vandalism. As a former insurance defense lawyer, Valentina Ambarchyan knows how insurance adjusters and attorneys try to undervalue or deny claims. She is prepared to fight their tactics and protect your interests so you can get your life back together.
Water Damage Is Especially Tough To Repair
Water can cause extensive damage to your property and belongings. Floors often need to be replaced. Ceilings may collapse. Electronics will likely be destroyed. You may also lose furniture, books, art and other items of intrinsic or sentimental value.
Additionally, even though parts of your structure may seem okay after they have dried, mold can form inside walls within a couple of days. This can be dangerous to your health, and it is imperative to get the walls repaired or replaced.
There are many ways your home or business can sustain water damage, including:
- A burst pipe or water valve failure
- Natural disaster
- Severe thunderstorm
- As part of a fire loss claim
In any of these cases, you may be entitled to compensation for more than just the property damage. In California, if your insurance company acted in bad faith, you may be able to collect additional compensation for your emotional distress, attorney fees and related financial losses. In some cases, there may be punitive damages from the insurance company. Each case is unique, so it is best to speak with an attorney about yours.
