Insurance Claim

A house fire can be a devastating loss for any home owner, but even more so for those without fire insurance. When the unthinkable happens, however, it is important to understand exactly how to file a claim so you can get the repairs you need and get back on your feet again. If you haven’t experienced it before, the difficulty in filing a successful insurance claim can come as quite a shock. At that juncture, it’s important to get expert help from an experienced insurance claim attorney, such as Steven B. Pollack. As a practicing attorney in Illinois, he has the specific knowledge of the legal system that is required in order to get you everything you’re entitled to under the law.


Unlike an insurance claims adjuster, an attorney like Steven has specific knowledge of the legal system that helps clients obtain more money from insurance companies through a combination of contract interpretation, case law research, and legal experience. An adjuster can only provide so much value, whereas an attorney like Steven can provide you with expert guidance and assistance all the way to the courtroom.


What sets Steven apart from other insurance claim lawyers is that he has experienced the same kind of tragedy. Years ago, his own house caught on fire, and he had to go through the same trouble as you to get compensated for his loss. The insurance company did not respond honorably or in good faith according to the terms of the insurance policy, and it was very difficult for Steven to be made whole under the terms of his insurance agreement. Naturally, this is one of the main reasons that he became an insurance claims lawyer and it is why he continues to fight to this day to see that fire insurance claims are paid in full.


Because he understand exactly how difficult it can be when a fire devastates your home, Steven does not take any kind of fee unless you are successful with your claim; if you don’t get paid, neither does he. To ensure that you do get paid, he will walk you through every single facet of the case, ranging from an the examination under oath to the presentation of the sworn statement in proof of loss. Because the devil is in the details, he will cover even the most minute of factors, including how to address the judge. In the case of a fire claim, the goal of most clients is to get what they are entitled to under the insurance policy, and Steven helps to keep a narrow focus on that goal.


There are several different types of insurance law that Steven practices which may apply to your case. He has experience dealing with sewer backup, hail damage, loss of property during transportation, and wind damage cases, and can help ensure that you get your fair shake in any such insurance case. Whether you have a fire or a flood, Steven B. Pollack can help you make sure that you file a successful insurance claim.
