A fire in your home or business can be devastating and change your life forever. While lives cannot be replaced, your home, business and personal property can be. Insurance claims for damage caused by fire can present very complex legal issues. Our staff of attorneys stand ready and willing to assist home and commercial property owners with claims resulting from fire damage.
Take photographs or videotape of the damage.
Make temporary repairs – save receipts for any materials that you purchase. Don’t make extensive permanent repairs until after the claims adjuster has been to your property and assessed the damage.
Call your insurance agent or company to report the damage.
In the case of your home, save receipts for additional living expenses – the minimum amount available to pay for such expenses is generally equal to 20% of the insurance coverage.
Prepare for the adjuster’s visit.
Be sure to keep copies of lists and other documents that you submit to your insurance company and any paper work that the insurance company gives to you.
LeValley Napolitano McMenamin & Shuttera, P.L. can assist you even if you have already filed a fire damage claim, whether or not the insurance company agrees you have coverage. We also represent property owners in situations where their insurer agrees that their property is damaged due to fire activity, but only offers to pay a portion of what it will cost to repair or replace the property. We can help people with these fire insurance disputes as well.
