Has an Insurance Company Denied Your Claim Without Investigating?
The common belief among consumers regarding insurance companies is that they exist to help you in times of need. However, this is not always the case; the primary goal of insurance providers is to maximize their profits, which sometimes involves tactics designed to avoid or reduce payments to policy holders. One method of doing so is by refusing or failing to send an adjuster to assess the damage and denying or reducing benefits without investigating. At Brasher Law Firm, PLLC, we want to help you hold insurance agencies accountable for bad faith practices.

The Role of an Adjuster
When you file a claim following an event that causes damage to your property, one of the first things that an insurance provider should do is send an adjuster to investigate. The adjuster has a responsibility to estimate the amount that the insurance company owes you.
An adjuster has specific duties that include:
- Timely respond to all claims
- File necessary paperwork
- Determine cause of damage
- Analyze all aspects of a claim including cost of repairs and living expenses
- Document all covered losses according to the definitions of the policy and notify insurance provider
An adjuster’s investigation is critical to receiving a settlement for your damage claim. If an insurance provider fails to send an adjuster to investigate and denies or reduces your claim, this is grounds for bad faith, and you have the right to take legal action.

I was very impressed with the Brasher Law Firm and the help of Nishi Kothari. Always in constant communication and keeping me informed with my case and explaining to me what was going on and taking place. Very easy process and very helpful with getting my case settled and resolved. I would definitely recommend this law firm to others that may have or experience the same problems I had with my insurance company.David Faith
Our claim was complicated by the fact that our Declarations page did not correctly state the coverages for our commercial buildings. Without your firm, we had gotten nowhere with the insurance company or agent. With the help of The Brasher Law Firm, we not only received the money we needed to fix our buildings, but a little more. I have no problem recommending your firm to anyone with an insurance dispute.Glenda ThompsonSecretary/Treasurer of Snappy’s Express Mart (relating to Snappy’s Convenience Store and Mini Storage Units)
