Homeowner holiday safety

The holiday season calls for gift giving, family get-togethers and festive decorations. With all the fun going on, it's easy to let the Christmas spirit distract you from all the potential safety hazards that are sure to put a damper on your celebrations. Here are a few tips to keep you and your family safe this season:

Insurance Bad Faith

Anytime an insurance company wrongfully denies a claim, they are acting in bad faith. The insurance policy between the insurance company and the insured is considered a contract that requires the company to act in good faith. Insurance companies often try to deny a claim for any reason they can or underpay for a claim. Bad faith needs to be proven by the insured by showing how the insurer failed to honor their policy.

House fires and insurance companies

After a house fire, homeowners often times make claims to their insurance company. When talking with the insurance company, be sure to record your claim number, your adjuster's name, and the name of the person you spoke with. The insurance company will send an adjuster to your home to assess the damage of your home. The adjuster may record a statement from you and give you an advance in money to pay for the necessities for the time being.
