6 Ways To Get the Most From Home Insurance Claims | Law Firm News

"We expect insurance companies to stand behind us when disaster strikes, but far too often we see insurance carriers deny, delay and underpay legitimate claims," says Phillip Sanov, a Houston-based attorney and head of the Lanier Law Firm Bad Faith Insurance Practice Group.

Insurance companies, increasingly focused on their bottom line and appeasing shareholders, will try to cut corners when it comes to claims, Sanov says.
"It's not necessarily the individual [claims adjuster] who comes out and has his feet on the ground," he says.
...
"Insurance companies know that nine out of 10 policyholders are just going to give up and say, 'It's not worth it, I don't want to fight anymore,'" Sanov says.
...
"A week before a storm hits, go take pictures of your walls and your roof," Sanov says.
...
"It does become more of a fight," Sanov says. "You hate to talk in those term, but policyholders are fighting with their insurance company. As claims mount and each adjuster is given a bottom line to preserve, the problems multiply and become greater and greater all the time. It is hard, in the position I'm in, to say anything in defense of them, given the way I've seen policyholders treated."
For those concerned that countering a claim will be costly, Sanov says most attorneys and public adjusters work on a contingency basis.


Unpaid Insurance Claims Linger After Hurricane Ike, Atlanta Hail Storms | Law Firm News

The national legal publication relied on the expertise of Phillip Sanov, who leads the Bad Faith Insurance Practice at The Lanier Law Firm.

In addition to his work with hundreds of Hurricane Ike victims whose insurance companies have delayed or refused to pay policy claims, Mr. Sanov also represents many families from the Atlanta area whose homes were severely damaged by hail during storms this past April. Mr. Sanov told the newspaper that he's seeing insurance companies providing repair estimates so low that customers are unable to find contractors willing to do the work.
The widespread practices used by insurance companies to try to keep from paying claims has resulted in numerous calls from customers interested in filing lawsuits in order to get their insurance claims paid. Mr. Sanov told The National Law Journal that his first visit to Atlanta resulted in a ton of interest from aggrieved homeowners.
"This was my first trip, and we've got 84 [homeowners] that want us to represent them," Mr. Sanov is quoted in the article. "We have got hundreds of files and we're getting contacted by dozens each week."
Mr. Sanov says many insurance companies are failing to tell their customers exactly what they are due under their policies as a way for the companies to save money. However, he told the newspaper, many insurers are willing to make things right if they know a lawyer is watching them on the other side.
". . . in most places, once a lawyer gets involved, the carrier will start doing closer to the right thing by their policy holder," Mr. Sanov is quoted as saying.
