FIRE INSURANCE CLAIMS
Fire Insurance Coverage
Insurance coverage for a fire claim may be provided by a specific fire policy, or it may be covered as part of a larger package of insurance. For the insurance company, fire losses are generally considered to be the most critical risk in the commercial property underwriting process. As a result of poor underwriting practices, insurance companies can be very aggressive in challenging rather than helping the insured when a big loss occurs.
Protecting Your Interests
Fire loss insurance claims can be very complex. Simply assessing the extent of the loss and figuring out what you need to get your business back in operation can be difficult. Smoke dispersion can vary greatly depending on the type of fire and the structure. Smoke can flow into and through plumbing systems, through cracks, and HVAC and electrical systems. Smoke in general and wet smoke in particular can be difficult to clean. Protein smoke is virtually invisible but discolors paints and varnishes and can have an offensive smell. Because of these type of issues, it is important for you to have the right professionals looking out for your specific needs and interests.
