Picking up the pieces of your life after a devastating house fire can be difficult enough without having to face the often overly aggressive stance of insurance companies when you make a claim. We at Wiseman Law Firm have seen this all too often – individuals and families put on the defensive, accused of trying to defraud insurance companies when all they want is to find closure, pick up the pieces and move forward.

We have unfortunately seen families displaced following a fire in the home. Adjusters may sell inadequate insurance or undervalue a home so that even if they honor a claim, the insured will not receive the proper amount of insurance benefit to cover the fire losses. Perhaps most reprehensible is the treatment our clients have received at the hands of their insurance companies. Too often, insurance companies give a pittance to the victims of a fire and then treat the victims as if they are guilty of a crime.
When a couple inherited their home and farm property, they set to work refurbishing it, making it their dream home. In financing the project, the family learned they needed insurance but were told they were not eligible for standard policies. Instead, they obtained a surplus line policy. Soon after, the wife was diagnosed with cancer. During a visit to the hospital for chemotherapy, the couple discovered their house burned down in a fire. The insurance company only covered the couple for the cost of food and a hotel for two days. After the wife’s death, the insurance company sued our client, alleging he obtained insurance fraudulently. Through our efforts in uncovering misconduct on the part of the insurer, we were able to obtain a substantial settlement for our client.
