Arizona Construction Insurance Bad Faith Attorney

Insurance Bad Faith Lawyer in Scottsdale focused on the Construction Industry

Throughout Arizona there are countless construction projects ongoing. Whether publicly funded, privately supported or a combination of both, all of these projects carry with them an element of risk. Whether a contractor is repairing drywall in a Scottsdale apartment or hundreds of workers are developing a new overpass on the 101 freeway, they all involve risk: Injuries to workers and passersby; car accidents related to road construction; lawsuits arising from alleged poor construction; huge claims for property damage. These cases are extremely complex and may involve catastrophic injury or even wrongful death. The cases become even more complex when an insurance company delays, denies or ignores insurance claims. They may be engaging in insurance bad faith.

Whether you are an individual, the representative of a corporation, or a government employee and you are struggling with an insurance company, contact experienced Scottsdale Insurance Bad Faith Lawyer Shane L. Harward. Since 1995 he has been standing up to large insurance companies who refuse to treat insurance consumers fairly.

Arizona Construction Insurance Claims are often Delayed and Denied

The large amounts of money that are often involved in construction claims sometimes encourage insurance companies to avoid paying such claims especially when fire, massive property damage, or catastrophic injury are involved. Insurance companies are in the business of profit. This may mean that if you are seeking a payment on a construction claim, you will be stonewalled and have your concerns ignored. Professional liability insurance and contractor insurance may not cover the claim you submit. Your policy may have been misrepresented to you at the time of purchase. The insurance company may be looking for the most insignificant excuse to deny coverage. You may need to file an insurance bad faith lawsuit. To discuss your legal options with one of Scottsdale’s experienced insurance bad faith attorneys, call 480-874-2918.

Your claim may be denied for a wide-variety of reasons. Some of the commonly denied Arizona construction insurance claims include

  • Property damage resulting from alleged building defects
  • Injury claims from subcontractors
  • Claims related to construction vehicle damages
  • Premises liability claims such as slip and fall accidents by employees and sub-contractors
  • Failure to defend against lawsuits

The wide-ranging effects of an insurance claim denial or delay can lead to prolonged suffering, unmet deadlines, and loss of income. Don’t face these possibilities without a skilled ally. Call 480-874-2918.
