Property Insurance Claims Lawyers
When you purchase property insurance, whether as an individual or business, you’re entering into a contract. You fulfill your part of the contract by paying premiums, and the insurance company is supposed to hold up their end of the contract by paying claims. Unfortunately, many insurers fail to do what they are obligated to do, leaving the insured party to figure out how to deal with the loss.
The Law Offices of Todd M. Friedman, P.C. handles bad faith property insurance issues on behalf of consumers in California, Illinois, Ohio and Pennsylvania. Our attorneys know every insurance company tactic for denying and delaying claims, and we know how to counter them. It may be time to contact us if your insurance company has:
- Denied your claim;

Understanding Property Insurance Companies’ Responsibilities to You
When you pay your insurance premiums, you are essentially buying protection from the possible harms spelled out in your policy. If a covered event damages your property, the insurance company is supposed to promptly investigate the claim and pay – in full and on time.
Rather than perform these duties, however, insurance companies frequently delay their investigations in hopes that you will drop the issue. Or, they interpret your policy very narrowly to try to exclude some or all of the damage that occurred so they don’t have to pay you the full amount to which you are entitled.
Our attorneys fully understand what motivates insurance companies and we can help you overcome the obstacles your insurer is putting in front of you. If you retain our services, we will quickly evaluate the situation and take appropriate action. We prepare every case as if it will end up in court, and we often do take things all the way to trial, if that is the best way to protect our clients.
