When to Call a Property Damage Lawyer
Property damage can occur without warning and affect all areas of your property including the function of your roof, the livability of your home or the profitability of your business. There are several factors that can result in damage to your residential or commercial property. These include:
- Pipe Burst
If you file a claim with your insurance company, an adjuster will visit your property and inspect the damage to determine whether the insurance company will provide a payout. While the insurance company is focused on protecting its own interests, we are committed to protecting you. If you believe you have been wrongly denied a property damage claim, we encourage you to contact us right away.
Mr. Dugas is passionate about holding insurance companies accountable for the services promised in your insurance policy.
What Is Insurance Bad Faith?
Insurance companies may present a number of reasons why the damage to your home is not covered. They may deny the claim by insisting that the roof was improperly installed, the damage is merely "wear and tear" or argue that the manufacturer of your shingles is at fault. If your insurance company denies your claim, you can hire a lawyer to file a lawsuit against the insurance company for breach of contract.

Unlike the insurance company, we have your best interests in mind. Mr. Dugas wants to help you focus on your home, family, and business while he fights for you. He provides all case reviews free of charge. He also works on a contingency basis. We will not collect unless you receive the payout you deserve.
