The devastation to homes and businesses caused by defects in construction can be financially crippling.
Luckily, homeowners and business insurance usually cover property damage losses caused by commercial construction defects.
However, making an insurance claim for property damage after a defect has led to damage can be both time-consuming and confusing.
Further, insurance companies and their adjusters are highly-trained in making sure the insurer pays the absolute minimum on these claims.
Naturally, disputes between business owners and insurance companies are common with construction defect damage claims. The following are some issues encountered by business owners when dealing with their insurance companies during a construction defect claim:
- Denial of the claim for an uncovered event
- Undervaluing claimed losses
- Partially denying claims that should be fully covered
- Delaying by asking for additional unnecessary paperwork or evidence
- Not returning calls or emails
- Requiring the business owner to jump through unnecessary hoops to stall the claims process
- Offering settlements contingent on signing a “full” release when there should be supplemental payments
