When You Have a Fire
You are under a lot of stress if your house, business, or other property has been damaged or destroyed by fire. Some of the decisions you have to make are where you are going to live? How you are going to buy new clothes for your family? How are you going to get your home repaired or replaced? You have a lot on your plate. An added stress is that your insurance company is going to be asking you for a lot of information, not only about the events and circumstances surrounding the fire and about your insurance application, but also for a detailed and itemized list of all of the property you claim is damaged -- down to a list of the shirts and blouses hanging in your closet.
We Can Help
Most of the time your insurance company is going to help you navigate this terrible episode in your life. You may have coverage for Additional Living Expenses that will help you get temporary housing, clothing, and all the other necessaries of life. And, your insurance company will pay to repair or replace your home. But sometimes it can get really messy. That is when we can help.
Your insurance company may ask you to give a statement under oath. If they do, then the company usually thinks there is reason there might not be insurance coverage. For example, the company may be investigating whether the fire was intentionally set. Or, the company may think your insurance application includes misrepresentations and the policy should not have been issued to you. Or even that the list of items lost in the fire is not accurate. Understandably, this adds a whole other layer of stress on a situation that is already one of the most stressful experiences in life.
