Municipalities and government agencies don’t generally expect to run into delays, complications, and denials when submitting insurance claims for storm or catastrophe damage, but although it seems unthinkable, it does happen. While some municipalities may react by accepting payments that are below expectations or giving up at the first denial, there is a proactive solution when the going gets rough. If you are having trouble getting the outcome your agency or municipality needs after severe losses, it may be time to reach out for the expertise and resources that come with an experienced policyholder attorney.
Focused Understanding of Issues with Government Claims After Loss and Damage
Governmental insurance claims are often very large, and the policyholders involved are generally responsible for the wellbeing of a number of people—so there’s a lot at risk. Our legal office has direct experience working with a number of government entities, including school boards, cities, counties and states, and we are intimately familiar with the unique insurance problems these entities face. We provide full-service support for governmental clients after catastrophes and severe weather events, and we will work with you to create a recovery plan that is tailored to meet your unique needs.
Taking Governmental Insurance Claims to Litigation
If you are unable to negotiate a satisfactory outcome with the insurance companies that provide your coverage, it may be necessary to consider litigation. Our experienced legal team prepares every policyholder claim as though it may go to litigation so that you’re ready to take all necessary steps to recover what your agency or municipality needs—and we are not afraid to push a case to litigation when it makes the most sense for our clients.
