Property Damage Claim Information

Generally a property damage claim may arise in any of the ways that a personal injury claim arises. A product defective may cause property damage instead of personal injury. A defective condition on property (such as blocked culverts which cause general flooding during heavy rains) can give rise to property damage claims rather than personal injury. Even negligent driving of an automobile can give rise to damage to a building or other property- rather than an injury to a person. Please review the type of accident which caused your property damage to occur in the menu on the left for more information.

In order to obtain the services of an attorney on a contingency fee for the purpose of recovering lost value due to property damage, the damage has to be in the tens or even hundreds of thousands of dollars. This unfortunate situation puts many people with property damage claims at the mercy of unscrupulous insurance companies. These insurers feel that they can deny and delay property damage claims (such as collision damage claims in a car accident case) and eventually compel the claimant to settle for far less than the value of their claims. If you have are able to acquire proof that an insurer is doing this to you, then you may have a bad faith claim against the insurer involved.
