Litigation may be the only answer for apartment building owners who cannot get insurance companies to honor Hurricane Sandy damage claims. Many insurers still have not compensated policyholders whose apartment buildings were damaged or destroyed in the 2012 hurricane, while other insurance carriers are offering payments that are too low or have denied legitimate claims. Apartment building owners endured not only brick-and-mortar damage, but also financial strain due to the interruption of normal business income.
Insurance companies that engage in unreasonable delays and unfair claims evaluations can cause apartment building owners to experience significant monetary hardship. Unwarranted delays or unsubstantiated denials can also exacerbate damage to property as conditions become worse due to delayed repairs. Insurance companies must be held responsible if they refuse to pay claims and cause further losses.
At Doyle LLP, our experienced Hurricane Sandy apartment building damage attorneys know that insurers use tactics to try to pay out as little money as they can to those that are insured, with the goal to pay nothing at all. Apartment owners who suffered damage cannot let insurance companies get away with paying less than they should. If you are insured, our lawyers will help you get the money that you are entitled to.
Hurricane Sandy Apartment Building Damage Claims
Insurance carriers may outright deny legitimate claims, may undervalue claims, or may impose significant obstacles and delays on insureds who are waiting for payouts. These actions are considered bad faith.
Every insurance contract has an implied covenant of good faith and fair dealing, which means the insurer is obligated to be reasonable in evaluating and paying claims. An insurance company that acts in bad faith in violation of the implied covenant can be sued by the apartment owner who was harmed. This bad faith action can result in an apartment building owner obtaining compensation in excess of the policy limits.
