If you are someone who has suffered property damage or loss because of the negligence or carelessness of another party or because you were the victim of a fire or another disaster, such as a hurricane or a flood, you may be able to obtain recovery under your insurance policy or from the insurance company of the liable party. Our Louisiana and Mississippi property damage lawyers at Thornhill Law Firm, A PLC, have gone up against some of the nation's biggest insurance companies so that our clients could receive the financial recovery they were owed for damages to their real property and/or personal property.
Real Property and Personal Property Damages
Real property damages are physical or economic damages resulting from damages to a building, a house, a piece of land, or another form of real estate. Homeowners insurance, hurricane insurance, business interruption insurance, business property insurance, farm property insurance, and flood insurance are some of the types of insurance that cover damages to real property.
Personal property damages are physical or economic damages resulting from damages to personal property that is not real estate. Auto insurance, motorcycle insurance, boat insurance, and truck insurance policies usually provide coverage for physical injuries and damages to the motor vehicle of the policy owner or other parties. Homeowners insurance and renters' insurance provide coverage for personal property items, such as jewelry, furniture, electronic items, fine art, and collectibles.
Property Damage Insurance Claims
In Louisiana, insurance companies have just 30 days from the time you file your notice of "satisfactory proof of loss" to settle your insurance claim. Unfortunately, insurance companies do not always have a claimant's best interests at heart and may attempt to delay your claim, deny your claim, or pay you the least amount of money possible.
Whether you are filing a property damage claim directed at your own insurance company or the insurer of the party that has damaged your property, it is important that you have an insurance claims attorney on your side that will protect your legal rights. Our New Orleans insurance attorneys at Thornhill Law Firm, A PLC, have successfully dealt with all of these issues on many occasions.
Seeking Justice for Our Clients
In the event that an insurance company provides you with a bad faith offer (you could be entitled to punitive damages) they could be in breach of contract by preventing you from receiving the monies that you are owed. Our insurance litigation lawyers are among the most aggressive and well respected in Southern Louisiana and Southern Mississippi. If necessary, we will litigate your case in court. We have successfully recovered claims and lawsuits from State Farm, Allstate, Zurich, Nationwide, USAA, Louisiana Citizens, Hanover, Horace Mann, Teachers' Insurance, St. Paul Travelers, Standard Fire, American Security, and other insurers.
