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
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.
Never lose sight of the fact that an insurance company is in business for
one primary reason -- and that reason is not to ensure you get full and
fair compensation for your Hurricane Harvey property damage losses. Your
insurance company exists for one primary reason, and that is to make money
for its shareholders. The less money your insurance company spends on
claim payments, the more money it has available for its shareholders.
Further Damage to Your Business Because of Improper Claim Settlement Practices
Your business is suffering additional damages and losses the longer your
insurance company improperly drags out the settlement of your claim or
engages in unfair claims settlement practices. For example, the longer
you have to wait to obtain a settlement of your property damage claim,
the more time your business is not running at peak performance -- or at all.
