WRONGFUL DENIAL OF A COMMERCIAL PROPERTY INSURANCE CLAIM.
Doyle LLP Trial Lawyers has filed a lawsuit seeking damages for the wrongful denial of a commercial property insurance claim.
The suit alleges that America First Lloyd’s Insurance Company, Liberty Mutual Insurance Company, and its adjuster, Marshall Lafon, denied a claim covered by a commercial property insurance policy. The claim arose from an October 5, 2014 hail storm that impacted the Dallas-Fort Worth area.
Doyle LLP’s client submitted to multiple inspections of the damaged properties and submitted a variety of documents to support the claim. Nonetheless, America First Lloyd’s Insurance Company, Liberty Mutual Insurance Company, and their adjusters denied the claim.
The legal filing states that America First Lloyd’s Insurance Company, Liberty Mutual Insurance Company, and their adjusters are liable for breach of contract (the insurance policy) and extra contractual claims under the common law duty of good faith and fair dealing, the Texas Insurance Code – Unfair Claim Settlement Practices Act, the Prompt Payment Act, and the Deceptive Trade Practices Act (DTPA).
Through the suit, Doyle LLP’s client is seeking compensation to allow for repair of the damaged commercial buildings. Moreover, Doyle LLP’s client is entitled to seek damages caused by the delay in payment of the claim, including interest, attorneys’ fees, and the damages that have occurred as a consequence of the delay in payment of the claim.
