Insurance Claims

Managing Attorney Mark Dean worked as an insurance defense attorney for over four years and knows that insurance companies aggressively seek to deny their own insured’s benefits, be it for fire loss, property damage, or uninsured or underinsured motorist coverage.  Managing Attorney Mark Dean:

"Those dealing with their own insurance companies should not assume their own insurance companies are on their side just because they have paid premiums (often for untold numbers of years). Unfortunately, it is just the opposite. Insurance companies defend all claims with one goal in mind ‒ to save every last penny they can."

Do not trust your claim against your own insurance company to an inexperienced attorney.  We aggressively represent those fighting their own insurance companies.  Examples of the types of cases in which this can arise are the following:

  • Uninsured or under‒insured motorist claims
  • Property damage or property destruction or loss claims
  • Fire claims

What to do if you are involved in a claim against your own insurance company:

  • Do not talk to an insurance company adjuster without first consulting with an attorney experienced in handling disputes such as this.
  • Do not give an insurance adjuster a recorded statement.
  • Document, to the best of your ability, your losses and damages.
  • Save and organize all papers regarding the incident.

Although we take these cases on a contingency (you pay us nothing until a successful outcome is secured), we often are able to increase the award against an insurance company for its "vexatious refusal" to initially pay your valid claim or its "bad faith" in unfairly dealing with you.
