We Know How Much Damage Fire Can Cause
Whether fire struck your home or your business, its knack for destruction is one of a kind. Fire can leave properties completely unrecognizable and turn proudly standing structures into a pile of cinders. Even if your entire building didn’t burn down, the untouched parts can still be compromised by surrounding structural damage. Our team understands this struggle firsthand, so you can count on our commitment to helping you get the settlement you’re owed.

Throughout our history, we’ve secured more than $950 million in collective settlements for our clients. With that kind of experience and knowledge on your side, you’ll be in the best position to file a successful fire damage claim.
The Insurance Company Is Not Your Friend
Insurance adjusters may seem like they’re there to help you after fire damage, but they’re not. They work for the insurance company, a for-profit company that makes money by denying people as much compensation as they can get away with. Work with our team instead, and we’ll conduct a proper damage assessment to determine just how much you’re owed.
Frequently Asked Questions
Handling the aftermath of fire damage is tough without an attorney. There’s almost no chance that you’ll be able to get the compensation you deserve. Not only will insurance adjusters underestimate the actual cost of the damage sustained during the fire, but they may deny your claim altogether for all sorts of reasons. With an experienced fire damage attorney by your side, you can fight back against the insurers all the way through court if necessary.
Every insurance policy is a little different, so the answer will vary from person to person. Some policies only cover direct fire damage, for example, while others will also include smoke and water damage that the fire may have caused.
Insurance companies may deny your claim for a number of reasons, including:
- Suspicion of arson
- Waiting too long to file
- Underestimating the damage’s extent
- Violating the policy’s terms
When your claim is properly filed along with all the necessary paperwork, it typically takes about three to four months for a case to settle. Some can drag out longer, of course, but having an experienced attorney working with you will make sure your settlement comes as fast as possible.
When you work with the Disaster Insurance Claims team at Long & Long Attorneys At Law, a lawyer won’t cost you anything unless we’ve won your case. Even the case review is completely free, so you can give us a call risk-free.
