Why Was My Fire Insurance Claim Denied?

  • In some cases, valid insurance claims have been denied by insurance companies without any explanation. Such a move can feel like a slap in the face to the homeowner who has invested thousands of dollars in insurance over the years. If your insurance company has denied your claim, do not lose hope! You may still be legally entitled to compensation. Because insurance companies are for-profit organizations, it is understandable that they would seek to avoid making unnecessary payments to their customers. However, wrongful denials of insurance claims is an example of an insurance company acting in bad faith. An insurance company may be acting in bad faith if it does any of the following:
  • Denies a total loss claim in spite of evidence to the contrary
  • Unjustly or without evidence accuses a claimant of arson
  • Threatens the policyholder in an attempt to pay a reduced amount
  • Violates the insurance policy in any way
  • Takes an unreasonably long time to investigate, respond to, or pay the claim
  • Knowingly undervalues the damaged property

Note that these are just some examples of bad faith insurance practices. Insurance companies are not above blaming homeowners for the cause of the fire and taking other deceitful or wrongful actions in an attempt to avoid paying out claims. Any time an insurance company acts wrongfully, the claimant can take legal action against their insurance provider.
