If you suffer property damage in a fire at your home or place of business, you should be able to rely on your insurer for prompt service and full coverage for the losses you can prove, up to the point of the policy limits. Some fire insurance claims proceed exactly in this manner.
However, many claimants experience resistance by the insurer at any of several points in the claim resolution process. Some claims are met with suspicions of arson and fraud from the very beginning. Others move through the system smoothly until the insurer sees the size of the loss claim. If you encounter difficulties with your insurer or if you receive a notice of denial of your claim, contact Murphy Battista LLP for advice about your options.
