Unfair Business Property Damage Insurance Claim Settlement Practices

Texas state law and the provisions of your business' insurance policy govern the manner in which your Hurricane Harvey business property damage claim is to be handled by an insurer. Sadly, in the aftermath of one major storm after another, many business property damage claims are not dealt with in a proper manner by insurance companies. Indeed, time and time again, insurance companies engage in what are known as unfair claim settlement practices.

In Houston, and across Texas, businesses of all types are beginning to experience what likely amounts to unfair claims settlement practices by their insurance companies. Unfair claims settlement practices some in a number of different, more common forms. These include:

  • unreasonable delay of claim investigation process
  • unreasonable delay of claim review process after investigation concludes
  • unreasonable requests for unnecessary information from insured business
  • improper denial of a valid claim
  • unreasonable delay of claims appeal process
  • improper attempt to force a quick, low-dollar settlement
  • interference with a business' right to seek legal representation
  • provision of false information to an insured

The reality is that oftentimes an insurance company engages in more than one type of activity or conduct that meets the definition of an unfair claim settlement practices. For example, an insurance company may unreasonably delay an initial investigation of a claim, unreasonably delay the claim review process, and improperly provide false information to an insured.

Contact an Experienced Personal Injury Lawyer

After an accident, the responsible party's insurance company may try to reduce the claim amount. Commonly, insurance adjusters are trained to get information from the injured to assist in reducing the claim. Though some insurers are less guilty of this practice than others, it is important to realize that insurance companies are profit-oriented corporations and reducing claims results in increased profits for shareholders. This can create a situation for the injured in which they are offered a settlement that does not truly reflect the damages suffered. If you accept this settlement, you lose the ability to get more money should your injuries require further medical treatments. It is critical that victims get legal assistance in any personal injury case, and The Doan Law Firm is prepared to fight relentlessly for your rights.
