What You May Recover in a Fire Damage Claim

A fire can cause significant damage to your property. As a home or business owner—even as a renter—you need to recognize how filing a fire damage claim can help you obtain the compensation that allows you to recover from your property damage and losses.

When you file a fire damage claim, you may recover specific compensation. However, some damages and losses you experience may require legal counsel to get through the complexities and into a positive situation.

Partial Property Damage

If you experience partial property damage because of a fire, you should recover the amount necessary for repairs. However, the limits of your policy can complicate the amount you receive. If you work with a lawyer, you can better understand how to move forward with getting compensation for your partial losses.

Total Property Loss

Total property loss can complicate matters a bit more. Your insurance company may be unwilling to pay for a full replacement of certain property—especially those that cost much more—if your policy limits prevent it. In these matters, it helps to know all of your options, and having a fire damage claim lawyer can give you a clearer understanding of your policy and how you move forward.

Physical Injuries or Wrongful Death

These two situations can make a claim even more challenging to endure. You may not be sure how to go through a claim and which insurance coverage pays out for these damages. Because many questions surround physical injuries and wrongful death in a fire damage claim, you should speak with legal counsel who can answer your questions and address your concerns.

No two claims are alike. It would help your case to receive personalized care with the facts of your situation in mind.
