On Your Side

Theft & Fire Claims

You suffer a fire or theft loss at your home, business, or to your auto. You purchased insurance to protect you from these unforeseen events and losses. Instead of stepping up, your insurance company refuses to pay, comes up with excuses, or worse yet, blames you for the loss or any delay. When you make a claim, particularly fire and theft claims, insurance companies believe they can dig into your finances and other personal matters, searching and looking for anything to avoid paying you. The insurer becomes more concerned with a basis to deny your claim than with looking for all reasons to pay your claim and upholding its obligations to pay a valid claim promptly.

If you experience a robbery, burglary, theft or fire at your home or business or to your auto, your insurer may use a variety of tactics to try and deny or delay payment of your valid claim, including accusing you of fraud, misrepresentation or misconduct, causing the loss, and/or even claim you are in violation of your policy. These strong-arm tactics are intended to intimidate and discourage you from making the insurer pay your covered loss.

A knowledgeable insurance attorney can help you overcome these obstacles, confront and discredit the insurer, and demonstrate to your insurance company that your claim should be paid. An experienced insurance lawyer can effectively pursue all available insurance coverages under your policy and all other available remedies and damages. At the Law Office of Mark A. Ticer we fight for the insurance coverage you purchased and have a successful history of making insurers pay and defeating their bullying tactics.

Legal Help When Your Insurance Claim Is Underpaid, Denied or Delayed

In most situations, it makes sense to contact a lawyer as soon as you experience a loss, like a fire or theft. Getting an experienced and knowledgeable insurance attorney involved early in the claims process can help you avoid roadblocks, delay and equally important, make a persuasive presentment of your claim. Having a lawyer also encourages your insurance company to take your claim seriously and deter them from taking advantage of you and using their bullying tactics.

We can also help if you have already made a claim and are having problems with your insurer, if your insurer is trying to deny or delay payment of your claim unfairly, or your insurer has already denied your covered claim. We can take action to enforce your rights under your insurance policy – effectively and persuasively.
