A residential property insurance claim when denied, delayed or underpaid can be a life altering event for a policyholder, but for an insurer, it is routine business. A property insurance claim is a business negotiation, and policyholders must approach the adjustment and settlement of their property insurance claim as they would any other business transaction involving a large investment. Few homeowners understand that taking legal action regarding their insurance claim is an option.
When a commercial property loss occurs, a business owner’s first impulse is to do whatever necessary to mitigate the loss and resume operations as quickly as possible. But settling a denied, delayed or underpaid commercial property insurance claim is a complex business transaction, and business owners should treat it as such, using the diligence and professional assistance typically used when negotiating a critical business contract.

Eighty percent. Depending on what you are talking about 80% can be a very large number. When you are talking about the percentage of storm victims that were underpaid on their flood insurance claims, the number becomes unthinkable. Still, that’s the number cited by FEMA and quoted in a recent article published by NPR. In addition to that shocking number, the article cited another…. $400 million. $400 million is the profits made by the Write Your Own insurance carriers in the wake of Superstorm Sandy.

Rather they take a portion of the premium for an administration fee and pass the rest along to FEMA which retains the premiums and holds them to pay claims. If a flood occurs,...

As I have noted in the past, the appraisal process has become a hot topic in the property insurance world in the past few years. Colorado has become ground zero for many of these disputes. While many states have statutory or appellate precedent to define the scope and workings of the appraisal process, Colorado is one of the few that does not. In a previous post I discussed a recent case in which a federal court in Colorado had written an extensive opinion discussing the appraisal process and the definition of the phase “amount of loss.” An important follow-up point, however, is this decision does not stand alone. As early as 2011, Colorado courts were wrestling with whether determining the “amount of loss” includes a determination of the causation of damages. State trial courts in multiple districts found it did.1 While I have never seen a state trial court opinion going the other way on this issue, it appears that many insurers decided to take their...
