Termite Damage Claims: Frequently Asked Questions

There are a lot of reasons why your claim might be denied: improper coverage, missing coverage, denial of the amount of damage you claim, and others. Insurance companies look for reasons to deny claims, and our termite damage attorneys are here to help you fight those denials and get the settlement you need.

The insurance company assumes that when it denies your claim, you won’t fight back. The insurance company will also have its own lawyers in its corner looking for legal loopholes to deny you the money you need. Having your own attorney to defend your termite repair claim can challenge their denial and give you the best shot at a settlement to rebuild.

This is often the first question that comes up in claims. Understanding your policy can be tricky, and the insurance company goes to great lengths to leave itself ways to get out of claims. Calling the Disaster Insurance Claims team at Long & Long Attorneys At Law for a free review of your policy is a great way to understand what you’re dealing with and to help you avoid pitfalls.

There’s absolutely no charge for your claim and policy review. That’s the first step. Then, if we don’t collect a settlement for you, there won’t be any charge at all. Simply put, you won’t even owe us a dime unless we collect for you.

Often these claims are settled out of court because a court trial can be time-consuming and expensive. It’s also an all-or-nothing affair, meaning it is usually in the best interests of both parties to settle. If we do have to go to court, though, be assured we’ll fight for you every step of the way.

We Are 5 Star Rated

I am a Hurricane Laura and Delta victim from Lake Charles, LA. After receiving NOTHING from my homeowners insurance company I was forced to get a lawyer. My health wouldn’t allow me to fight them myself. My attorney Cate Biggs was such a blessing. To have such good representation and having never met her was a relief. Her team was just as good as she was. I have never had a lawyer for anything like this and although I hope I never need another for this reason but if I do Long and Long will be representing me again. God bless them all.

We want to thank the team at Long & Long for helping us through our Hurricane claim. From the initial phone call we had with Long & Long, to our updates from our attorney, and everyone on the team in between; we were treated like royalty. We wish we had called sooner. We would recommend them to any of our friends and family. Thank you Long & Long!

Mike Dupre

My home was damaged in Hurricane Laura and like pretty much everyone in our area, the repairs were underestimated by my insurance company. Realizing I was out of my depth I contacted Long and Long for assistance in keeping the insurance company honest in holding up their end of our agreement, returning my home to its pre-damage condition. My attorney, Cate Biggs, and her whole team worked tirelessly on my behalf through this process and made sure I was "done right" by my insurance company. I hope I never need to work with Long and Long again, but should I ever find myself on the wrong [end] of an insurance companies' malfeasance, I will not hesitate to give them a call.

Chris T.

Our home was extremely damaged and flooded after Hurricane Sally. I was at a complete loss of how to navigate through the process of making spreadsheets or how to handle our flood and wind claims. Cate and her team did a wonderful job helping me. They handled everything and I was very pleased with the settlements they got for us. I would definitely recommend them!

Beverly Ford

Long & Long completely exceeded my expectations. I didn’t know that anyone needed a lawyer when you have an insurance claim, but you do. Long & Long explained everything that was owed to me under my fire insurance contract and made sure the insurance company paid it. Long & Long knocked it out of the park on my settlement.

Russel Vaughn

Bennett Long represented my company and me in a complex property damage and lost income claim. His knowledge and capabilities far exceeded all my expectations. The entire staff at Long and Long are professional and friendly. After handing over to them one of the most difficult business challenges I've faced, not once did I question their abilities or dedication to work towards what was best for me, the client. I am extremely happy with the outcome and shudder to think where I might be without their expertise and ability. Working with Long and Long is one of the best decisions I've ever made.

Don't Base Your Claim on Contractor Bids

Contractors can raise their prices after they start working, so if you base a claim on a bid, you may find yourself short on the money you need.

Watch Out for Underinsurance Penalties

If you're underinsured, the insurance company can hit you with penalties that can greatly reduce your settlement.

Call an Experienced Termite Damage Attorney

These are just a few reasons why it's so important to immediately call a termite insurance lawyer to help with your claim.

Reasons Why Your Termite Damage Claim was Denied

The insurance company might claim that you should’ve known about the infestation and taken action to correct it. The insurance company is implying that you were negligent and that it’s your fault.

Whether they call it an act of God or claim that you don’t have the specific insurance you need, insurance companies will often find reasons to claim that you’re lacking essential coverage. Let us show them that you do have the coverage that requires them to pay your settlement.

Very often, insurance companies deny your claim based on the idea that your damage assessment isn’t all that bad. A qualified termite insurance claims attorney can help demonstrate in detail that it is that bad, and provide evidence to support the claim.

Passing the buck is an often-used tactic of insurance companies. They might claim that if you had a pest control company in and the problem continued, you’ll need to sue the pest control company. While this may be the case, your termite insurance claims lawyer can help you sort through the red tape and hold the right party accountable.

All too often, you’ll get a claim denial without any reason for it at all. When this happens, it’s essential to contact a termite repair claim attorney to force them to back up the denial and to fight to get you the settlement you need.

Don’t Trust the Insurance Adjuster’s Motives

Insurance adjusters often try to come off as compassionate at first, but make no mistake: Their goal is to avoid maximum payouts. Let our team assemble a detailed assessment of the damage you’ve suffered and help hold the insurance company accountable for unfair claims denials.
