When you are struggling with the aftermath of a house fire, the last thing you want to worry about is having your insurance claim denied. Unfortunately, there is a good chance that your claim will be denied, either partially or in full. Your insurance company will come up with a variety of reasons for the denial – your premium was late, the damage is not as extensive as you claim, repairs can be made instead of replacement and so on. Before you know it, you could be left with no compensation for your losses – leaving you with no financial means to recover from the fire.

Fortunately, an insurance claim in Chicagodoes not have to be this difficult – as long as you hire a skilled attorney. When you hire an attorney to handle your claim, you are sending a message to your insurance company. That message says that you will not be shortchanged and you will not accept their denial without a fight. Only with an experienced attorney on your side can you ensure proper compensation from your insurance company.
