A fire can cause extensive damage to your home or business. Unfortunately, after receiving a fire damage claim, some insurance companies add insult to injury by giving displaced property owners the runaround.

Making Insurance Companies Honor Their Contracts
Insurance companies use a variety of tactics to deny, delay or minimize fire damage claims. Here are just some examples:
- Blaming you for causing the fire intentionally
- Minimizing the extent of damage to your property
- Paying you less money than you need to replace your home or business
- Undervaluing items in your home that were damaged or lost
- Failing to provide you with adequate reimbursement for expenses while you are displaced from your home or business
- Failing to have your home insured for the proper limits or coverage
It often takes an attorney’s help to force insurance companies to honor their commitments. We will take immediate steps to ensure that you receive everything you are entitled to under your homeowners or business insurance policy. If we believe the insurance company has acted in bad faith, we will seek additional compensation as allowed under Missouri or Kansas law.
Insurance companies have investigators working to protect their interests. To protect your interests, you should contact an attorney as soon as possible. Our law firm works with experienced investigators who can support your claim for full compensation for everything you have lost in a fire. Never assume that your loss will be paid. Once the insurance investigator completes his or her work, you may lose your opportunity to refute the findings.
