Fire damage can be a nightmare for any homeowner. A fire can quickly tear through a homeowner’s property, damaging everything in its path. Insurance companies will cover homes in certain fire damage situations. It is important that a qualified individual can assess the damages caused by the fire, how the fire started and how to go about the fire damage insurance claim. The attorneys at JT Legal Group, APC can represent homeowners in their insurance claim to make sure they receive the repairs that are needed to get their lives back in order.
As a California Property Damage Law Firm, we are able to assist you in any loss you may have suffered due to fire damage. After the fire, you will have to start the mitigation process of cleaning, restoring, and repairing your damaged home. If the property is a total loss, then the insurance company may fight harder for the smallest amounts of coverage; if the damage is small, an insurance company may take advantage of your situation by giving you lower than needed repair costs, that could eat away at your deductible.
We've helped plenty of our clients gain a proper settlement from their insurance company. The following are a few examples of real settlements we were able to obtain for our clients:
Residential fires can start from food on the oven that has been burned, electrical wiring, flammable liquids, product defects of items in the house, and many more.
