A house fire is clearly among the most devastating events that can strike an individual or family. A business destroyed by fire is also a personal and economic setback of great magnitude. In the immediate aftermath, one of few comforts may have been the confidence that your homeowners or other property insurance should cover the damage.  If a property insurer refuses to pay, Doyle Dennis LLP’s team includes fire damage lawyer.

Unfortunately, fires can lead to intense, stressful disputes about the validity and value of the insurance claim — even though almost all homeowners policies provide fire coverage. If you are trying to overcome a denial, significant delay, undervaluation or other problem with your fire claim, please contact us now at Doyle Dennis LLP Trial Lawyers in Houston, Texas.

Fighting Against Unfair Treatment and Insurance Bad Faith

Under Texas law, there are a number of specific types of illegal insurance conduct. Nonetheless, insurers attempt to use prohibited strategies and tactics such as:

  • Hiring biased reviewers and investigators motivated by their own financial gain to file reports that protect insurers from paying what they owe
  • Denying claims and coverage without a reasonable investigation and basis, or withholding or unreasonably delaying payments to the insured
  • Throwing unreasonable obstacles in the way of the insured’s attempt to recover and protect the value of the home or businesses
