Helping Clients Litigate Insurance Claims
My insurance litigation experience is extensive. When I began my career as a lawyer, I defended insurance companies that were trying to avoid paying claims. It is no secret that insurance companies work hard to capture profits by minimizing the value of claims or outright refusing to pay on claims that their insureds have to collect.
Today, at my law firm, Jeffrey O. Meunier, Attorney at Law, I use what I learned from the other side of the courtroom to represent plaintiffs seeking fair claims compensation for a wide range of insurance policies such as:
- Homeowners coverage
- Other property
- Business general liability and property
- Life insurance
I confidently take big insurers to court, and I hold them accountable in cases of bad faith failure to pay claims, failure to follow policy provisions and refusals of coverage.
Steps To Take When Fire, Water Or Another Property Damage Occur
After you discover the need to file for a potential claim, notify your insurance company as soon as possible. This can usually be done by a phone call or an online visit to their website. Find out what their specific requirements are for providing them with the information they need and what their timeline is.
Get your policy out. Be sure you have the most current document and that you are current on your payments. Try to be certain that you understand what the insurance policy covers and the amount of your deductible obligation. Ask your insurance company representative for clarification. Remember, they work for you, not the other way around. Keep all receipts for work done and any other of your out-of-pocket expenses.
It is critical that you make – and keep – copies of your correspondence with the insurance company representatives. Keep a log of phone calls, including dates, with whom you spoke and what was said. These records will be vital to your case if the insurance company delays in providing or refuses the payment you have a right to receive.
