Scottsdale Attorney for Fire Insurance Bad Faith Cases

On the Side of the Insured and Against Large Insurance Companies Throughout Arizona

Insurance agents are often friendly, charismatic, and pleasant. Many of them are extremely knowledgeable and helpful. However, the massive companies that they work for have one goal, and one goal only: profit. As much as an individual agent or insurance broker may be on your side, the insurance company will almost always look for ways to avoid paying on claims. This is especially common when fires are concerned because the damages can be extremely expensive. It is often in the best economic interest of the insurance company to try to wiggle out of paying a legitimate claim. They may:

  • Accuse the insured of arson or of hiring an arsonist to purposefully destroy a property
  • Say that certain conditions make the insurance policy invalid
  • Claim that the policy is void due to a premium not being paid
  • Endlessly delay making decisions on the claim
  • Conduct unreasonable and unfair investigations, which prolong the claim’s process
  • In cases of wildfire, make arguments that the policy does not cover such incidents

The list of ways that insurance companies try to avoid paying is seemingly endless. The above represent only a few of their strategies. Scottsdale Attorney Shane L. Harward has been combating these companies and their tactics since 1995. He is familiar with their strategies and, more importantly, he knows how to effectively counter them. If you have lost property in an Arizona fire and your insurance company is treating you unfairly or unreasonably, call 480-874-2918. You paid for insurance, so you deserve benefits.

You Should be able to trust your Arizona Fire Insurance Company

Your insurance company may treat you like a number. It may put you through endless scrutiny and behave as if you have done something wrong because your home, rental property, or business burned down, but you know the truth. If you are struggling with getting an insurance company to pay on your fire claim, please give Arizona attorney Shane L. Harward a call (480) 874-2918. Don’t settle for low-ball estimates, either. One of the most common tactics that your insurance company may use is to be extremely friendly with you and behave as if they are completely on your side, while at the same time they offer you an inadequate, unfair settlement amount based upon an unreasonable loss evaluation.  While many individuals who work for insurance companies are good and honest people, their industry often thrives on tactics that are, at best, questionable.

Shane L. Harward is an Arizona attorney with the resources and experience to challenge the insurance company withholding or denying your claim for fire damages. With Mr. Harward as your ally, you will know what to expect when suing a large insurance company.  You will have an attorney who has a comprehensive understanding of insurance law, and the legal processes involved, and you will have a lawyer who will relentlessly pursue your best interests no matter the challenges.  Mr. Harward has helped countless people in Arizona recover millions of dollars in compensation when insurance companies have not shown good faith in their business practices.
