Our experienced New York attorneys can assist you with all components of your insurance claim in both State and Federal Courts from from Albany to Nassau and Suffolk County in Long Island.
If an insurance company has demanded an Examination Under Oath (EUO), or you have questions about the Appraisal Process, or if your claim has been denied or underpaid, we can assist. Insurance claims are often very complicated and there are many pitfalls. Our attorneys have litigated insurance issues including Cooperation Clause, Proof of Loss requirements, Notice, Residency, and the provisions of the policy as a whole. The insurance company has a team of adjusters and lawyers working for them, and so should you.
We have successfully handled virtually every type of loss, including flood damage claims, water damage, wind, frozen pipe/pipe burst, collapse, puffback, fire, mold, vandalism, theft and more, with ever major insurance carrier in New York. We are very proud that we received many referrals from Public Adjusters, other attorneys, industry professionals and even former adversaries.
While an insurance policy is a contract, the time to file a lawsuit, or statute of limitations, for a denied claim is actually much shorter than a typical breach of contract claim. Insurance policies in New York State and elsewhere limit your time to file. Most New York policies allows only two years to file from the date of the loss itself, with some being as short as one year. Do not delay and call for your free consultation.
