A Maui Wildfire Insurance Claim Lawyer is here to help you.
Many families have lost everything. Small and large companies have seen their businesses damaged or destroyed. Losses include homes and apartments, grocery stores, inns and restaurants, houses of worship, medical clinics, schools, professional offices and more. Individual and commercial policyholders spend thousands of dollars annually to insure their property and livelihoods. That coverage is what you depend on when tragedy strikes.
Insurance Company Bad Acts After The Lahaina Fires
Unfortunately, insurance companies do not always deal fairly with clients in their time of greatest need. There is a significant history of insurance carriers engaging in illegal, profit-driven methods of denying payment of valid claims and reneging on contractual obligations to policyholders.
Insurance misconduct comes in many forms—misrepresenting the terms of a contract, failure to disclose exclusions or limitations during the purchase of a policy, interpretations of contractual language and “fine print,” imposing unreasonable or arbitrary requirements for proving a covered loss, asking the insured to cover a portion of the loss they should not have to cover, failing to conduct a thorough investigation, using delays to avoid resolution, and other unacceptable practices that shortchange victims.
