Most homeowners are diligent about paying the premiums on their property insurance so that they are covered in the event of a loss from a natural disaster.  So, you’re hopeful that your insurance company will honor your policy and pay for the damages you’ve claimed.  Unfortunately, this isn’t always the case as many homeowner’s insurance companies don’t always deliver on their promises to help. And that is when you need the services of a lawyer to help take legal action. Once the insurance adjuster has finished their initial evaluation, you play the waiting game, all the time anticipating a phone call from them within a few days.  But the phone call never comes.  Finally, after several weeks, you get a letter in your mailbox from the insurance company containing a check or the damages you claimed.  Unfortunately, it’s far less than you anticipated and won’t come close to paying for the repairs you need. Claims denied because of pre-existing Damage. The common practice of many insurance companies at this point in the claims process is to deny all or a large percentage of the damages you’re claiming.
