California Insurance Claims Attorney
Helping clients with California property damage & casualty insurance policy issues
Life presents many surprises. Catastrophic events, fires, natural disasters, and other events can cause substantial property damage. Thankfully, insurance is available to cover most of these unexpected events. Generally, there are two categories of insurance available, property damage and general liability.
Many insurance policies are a hybrid and provide the insured a combination of both categories of coverage; they will protect the business owner from claims resulting from accidents on their premises and will also cover the property owner for damage and losses to their property. Homeowners’ insurance policies can also include both categories of coverage; they can reimburse the homeowner for damage or loss to their home and furnishings and they can cover guests that are injured from accidents on their property.
Property Damage Insurance
This covers the property owner from losses to their property. This type of insurance can include coverage for fire damage, flood damage, water damage, hurricane damage, earthquake damage, theft, vandalism, and even rioting. It is important for the insured to understand what is and is not covered by their policy and to make sure that they have purchased the coverage that they want. Not all property damage insurance policies are written alike, and many do not provide adequate coverage for all of life’s surprises.
General Liability / Casualty Insurance
This protects businesses and property owners from claims resulting from events and actions that have occurred on or from their business or property. This type of insurance may also include protection for claims of negligence, premises liability, professional liability, commercial vehicle accidents, slip and falls, fire, advertising liability, aircraft accidents, or watercraft accidents. Like property damage insurance policies, not all general liability and casualty insurance policies are written alike, so it is important for the insured to understand what is and is not covered to make sure they are buying the coverage that they want.
Put Our Experienced Attorneys on Your Side
Regardless of the type of claim you have, it is important to understand that the insurance adjuster works for the insurance company and does not necessarily have your best interests in mind. Many claimants are surprised to find out that after years of paying their premiums, their insurance company uses aggressive tactics to minimize or wrongfully deny their claim. Insurance adjusters have only one job and one responsibility: to pay as little as possible on the claims.
Insurance adjusters will often undervalue your claim and, in many cases, search for excuses to deny your claim. One tactic that insurance companies use to wrongfully deny claims is to bully the claimants into providing multiple recorded statements and unnecessary authorization forms. It is important to consult with a lawyer as early in the claims process as possible to ensure that no mistakes are made in pursuing your insurance claim.
