Bad Faith Denial Of Fire Loss Insurance Claims

If you filed a fire loss claim under your homeowners insurance or a separate fire insurance policy, the insurance company has an obligation to investigate and pay in a timely manner. Some insurers presume arson and deny or delay fire loss claims without any valid basis.

If your insurer has not paid your fire insurance claim, you may have grounds for a bad faith lawsuit. Guenard & Bozarth has a demonstrated record of holding insurance companies accountable for paying claims in a reasonable time frame and all the way to the policy limits.

Our attorneys represented a Northern California homeowner whose house was destroyed by a raging forest fire. His insurer, Allstate, denied the claim, suggesting he had burned his own house down. We went to court to force the insurance company to pay the claim plus bad faith damages.

Guenard & Bozarth maintains offices in Sacramento and Elk Grove. If your home was damaged by a forest fire, electrical fire, natural gas explosion or fire of unknown origin, including smoke damage or losses relating to firefighting efforts, seek legal help before filing the claim.
