Was Your San Antonio Property Damaged In A Fire?

It is common knowledge that a fire has the capacity to destroy anything in its path, and when your personal home or property is affected, you know how immense this destruction can be. In the aftermath of such a serious and life-changing event, the last thing you should have to deal with is an insurance company seeking to take advantage of you in your time of need. With the massive expenses that are associated with rebuilding after a fire, you expect your insurance company to help you make the payments needed to return to normal.

As a former attorney for insurance companies, I know how reluctant insurance can be to provide you with the care you need during this time. When their profit is concerned, you may find yourself at a disadvantage.

What Damages Can A Fire Cause To My Home?

What starts as a small spark can erupt into an inferno in a matter of seconds. Given the extent of the damage that can occur, repairing fire damage can be time-consuming and expensive. With such an immense financial burden, you will likely require the assistance of an insurance company to help you rebuild your life.

Common damages caused by a fire include:

  • Compromised roof or wall structure
  • Chemical residue
  • Foundation breakdown
  • Melted siding
  • Warped glass
  • Blistered window frames
  • Plumbing damage

Many of these damages can strongly compromise the integrity of your home or business, meaning they must be completely repaired to ensure that your property is completely safe. This can take considerable time, and for business owners, this can mean commercial interruptions and added business expenses that should be covered under specific insurance policies.

Besides the property that needs to be repaired after a fire, you may also have lost personal and heirloom items that have significant meaning for you and your family. With an aggressive attorney by your side, your insurance company may not only be held accountable for the property damage you have incurred, but also emotional pain and suffering.

As you begin taking repair steps, taking the time to document all of the expenses you are incurring while correcting these damages can help your lawyer see your full financial picture.

Fight Back Against Bad Faith Insurance Companies

Working with a lawyer is especially useful if your insurance company has attempted to use bad faith practices to deny you the compensation you are entitled to. Some of the ways this can be done is by:

  • Failing to investigate your claim
  • Not giving you the proper amount of damages
  • Accusing you of arson
  • Denying the claim
  • Not withholding all of the terms of the insurance policy

If bad faith is suspected and litigation is necessary, I can take aggressive steps to help you recover the compensation you are entitled to.
