If someone else damages your property, you shouldn’t have to pay for their negligent or reckless actions. You might expect your insurance to pay for the damages, but insurance companies can give you the runaround even if you’ve always paid your premiums on time.
Property damage is often an issue in traffic accident cases. If you suffer injuries and your car gets totaled in a crash caused by another driver, you could have a personal injury claim and a property damage claim. Depending on the value of your damaged property, you could be entitled to thousands of dollars in compensation for your losses.
But compensation for property damage doesn’t just stop with your car. You could also recover for damage to anything inside the car during the crash, like laptops or other valuable items.
Unfortunately, if you’re the victim of property damage, you may soon find out that your insurance company is not actually on your side, no matter what their commercials may say. Ultimately, your insurance company’s loyalties lie with shareholders and company profits. From their point of view, the less they pay out for your claim, the better it is for their balance sheet.
When you work with Pyramid Legal, our experienced property damage lawyers are in your corner looking out for your best interests at all times. You don’t have to worry about dealing with your insurance company because we deal with them for you – and their intimidation tactics don’t work on us. We make sure you get the full amount you deserve for your claim.
Personal Property Damage from Fire or Water
Southern California homeowners have always had to deal with destructive natural elements like wildfires, flash floods, high winds, and storms. That’s on top of the usual homeowner concerns like water leaks or housefires. You may think you’re covered for these types of damages under your homeowner’s insurance policy until your insurance company starts giving you pushback.
At Pyramid Legal, we make sure that your insurance company covers you for the full amount you’re owed under your policy. We always advocate for your best interests and goes, whether that involves repairing your home or buying another property.
Business Property Damage From Vandalism
Businesses also face the risks of fire and water leaks. But storefronts are often targets for incidents of vandalism, burglary, and theft that cause thousands of dollars in damage. The team at Pyramid Legal can help you get the maximum amount under your insurance policy.
You could benefit from filing a property damage lawsuit if:
- Your property damage was caused by someone else’s negligent actions,
- Your insurance company denies your claims or delays your payments,
- Your insurance company threatens to cancel your coverage,
- Your claim is undervalued by your insurance company,
- Your insurance representative misrepresents your policy, or
- Your insurance company delays the investigation into your property damage claim.
Some of these cases involve insurance companies acting in bad faith – purposefully denying you your rights under the terms of your policy – which is also illegal.
When you work with Pyramid Legal, you don’t pay us until we recover compensation for your property damage. We’re just as invested in your case as you are.
