Recovering Damages For Smoke And Soot
The choking stench of smoke and soot does not end when the fire is out. Smoke damage is insidious, sometimes damaging things to the point of having to replace the entire dwelling and all the furniture and possessions inside.
Most insurers don’t want to hear that, though. Their “experienced adjusters” will try to tell you that cleaning the surfaces will remove the damage and destruction. Unfortunately, insurers frequently underestimate the cost of repairs or disregard a legitimate need to replace items, which only creates more problems for homeowners after a fire.
You have kept up your part of the bargain. You’ve paid your premiums on time, trusting that when it comes time to collect, you will be taken care of. You’re feeling vulnerable after a fire, emotionally distressed and financially troubled, which means an underpaid claim or, worse, a denied claim is the last thing you want or need to worry about.
