When a catastrophic storm strikes, insurance companies will have thousands to tens of thousands of claims to process, often within a few days following the storm. Typically, insurance companies will hire independent adjusting companies to inspect damaged property and prepare an estimate for repairs for each claim. It sounds simple enough. However, multiple adjusters, delays in processing and payment, unfair denials, misrepresentations, and offers to settle claims for far below the actual cost of repairing the damage are all strategies that insurance companies typically employ to avoid paying fair value, as insurance companies can, and do, save millions of dollars by settling claims at less than their fair value. If you are being treated unfairly by your insurance company, the sooner you take action, the better. Often, the best way to help you get all the money you are entitled to under your policy and the law is to turn the settlement process over to a law firm that understands the law and the tactics your insurance company might try to use to deny you the payment you deserve. Do not hesitate to secure the help you need. Contact the insurance claims lawyers of Williams Kherkher at (713) 230-2200 today.
WK approaches every case as if it will be presented to a jury. While we always hope that a fair resolution can be reached quickly, it is our experience that insurance companies prefer to delay as long as possible. Only the threat of a jury holding them accountable is what forces them to be reasonable.
