What if Your Insurance Company Denies Your Home Fire Loss Claim?
For most people, their home is the most valued possession they have, both materially and personally. You look forward to walking through your door at the end of a hard day’s work. You have family and friends over for holidays and parties. You play in your yard with your children. You keep the possessions you have accumulated over a lifetime under your roof, and you hold the memories you have made at home dear to your heart. Any way you look at it, a person’s home is the most important thing to them and the possession they have worked hardest for in their lifetime.
Unfortunately, a home can be destroyed by fire in the blink of an eye. Faulty electrical wiring or appliances, chimney fires, or heater and boiler accidents can take your most important possession, and the valuable possessions it protects, away from you in the time it took you to sign the paperwork before you moved in. If you suffer a loss or damage to your home as a result of fire, you are going to turn to your insurance company for help in your time of need. But what if they deny your claim, or battle you on what is covered and what isn’t? What if they don’t pay for your losses, even though you paid your premiums? That’s where Basch & Keegan steps in and steps up to the plate.
