Demanding Accountability from Insurers

If your insurer wrongfully denied your claim or coverage, we can demand accountability.

Insurance policies represent a promise. When you pay premiums, you expect coverage if catastrophe strikes.

At Windsor PLC, we believe in honoring promises. If your insurer wrongfully denied your claim or coverage, we can demand accountability. We’ll analyze your policy, work to prove your entitlements and fight with tenacity — either at the negotiation table or in the courtroom.

We understand how insurers operate and know where to apply pressure. Let us battle on your behalf to get the coverage you deserve.

Have Questions?

What does it mean when an insurance company acts in “bad faith”?

Insurers have a legal duty to deal fairly and make good faith efforts to settle valid claims. Bad faith refers to unreasonable denials, delays or misconduct in the handling of a claim.

Can I clean up or repair damage before the insurance adjuster arrives?

You should take steps to prevent further damage/loss, and discuss with an attorney before making permanent repairs.

What if my insurance company disputes my contractor's estimates?

Insurers sometimes dispute repair estimates. If that occurs, we can advocate on your behalf, assess actual costs and fight to establish evidence supporting your claim amounts.

What are “additional living expenses” and how should I document them?

ALE coverage provides for temporary housing and other costs due to property loss. Track all ALE, such as hotel stays, restaurant meals and mileage. Keep all receipts.

Do insurance claims have a statute of limitations in California?

Yes. Typically, you have one or two years from the date of loss to file a lawsuit over a denied or disputed insurance claim. This should be reviewed with an attorney; act promptly to avoid jeopardizing your rights.

Do I need an insurance lawyer?

Engaging an experienced insurance attorney is usually wise if your claim has been denied or you are struggling to reach a fair settlement. An attorney has the expertise to navigate complex policies, prove your entitlements, negotiate with insurers and take legal action if needed. Having a lawyer in your corner levels the playing field and provides critical support when you need it most. We routinely help clients maximize insurance claim outcomes.
