Damage to your home? We can help — request a free review.

Insurance companies employ professional claims adjusters who are trained to protect the company's bottom line. If you have been the victim of a theft, flood, fire, or other loss to your property, the insurance company may do everything possible to minimize its exposure to risk and to significantly limit your recovery. Washington state has enacted specific laws governing these types of cases. It may benefit you to talk with one of our attorneys before attempting to resolve your claim without professional assistance.

Washington and Oregon Lawyers for Insurance Claims and Coverage Disputes

With our attorneys experience and access to expert witnesses in insurance matters, our knowledge of how insurance claims are handled, and frequently mishandled, could benefit you. We are prepared to help, whether your problem involves a disputed auto, disability, homeowners claim or other insurance issue — in Washington or Oregon.

After an accident around the home, most people do not expect to have their claims denied altogether, or to be “low balled” even though they have paid insurance premiums over the years regularly and on time. The same is true for people who incur fire loss, flood, or storm damage to their homes or other property. Unfair denial or an unreasonable delay of your claim may be insurance “bad faith,” and our firm knows how to take action for you.
