Why Hire a Contents Claim Lawyer?
After a disaster, you need time to heal. Allow us to remove the burden of dealing with the insurance company from your shoulders.
Negotiating an insurance claim involves understanding the following:
- Depreciation: The amount by which your insurance company reduces the value of your lost items due to age and normal wear and tear.
- Actual cash value of items: The value of your lost items after depreciation.
- Replacement costs: The cost to replace your items.
- Tax consequences after a disaster: Federal tax considerations concerning natural disasters.
If you are unfamiliar with these concepts, you may unknowingly accept an unfair settlement. For example, there is no one universal depreciation schedule. As a result, your insurance company may use a depreciation schedule that reduces your payout. At EC Law Counsel, we will obtain experts to conduct proper evaluation of your loss and obtain a settlement you deserve.
When filing a claim, you are responsible for providing all extensive list of inventory and litany of documents request to your insurance provider. Your insurance company may ask you to give a recorded or sworn statement. Only agree to this request once you have spoken to an insurance lawyer who has reviewed your case.
