Have you recently suffered significant property damage? Are you looking to file a claim to reclaim some of the damages lost? You might be weighing the pros and cons of hiring an attorney for your case—at Scott, Vicknair, Hair and Checki, LLC, we can assure you that having an attorney can certainly turn the scales of justice in your favor.
Property damage claims may encompass any of the following:
- Homes, and any surrounding property in the owner’s possession
- Businesses, and any surrounding property in the owner’s possession
- Interior and exterior structures
- Personal possessions, such as electronics, clothing, artwork, jewelry
- Any other personal effects or assets
One of the major reasons for this is because insurance companies are more likely to move cases along and get them resolved quickly. When an insurance company realizes that a lawyer is now involved in the case, they are more apt to take cases much more seriously.
The compensation that you recover can be used for damages to your home from natural elements, such as wind, storm, and hurricanes, etc. It can be used to cover the costs of treatment for injuries that result from cases such as slip and falls and offer financial protection for any injuries sustained due to attacks or assaults.
Property damage can occur at any given moment—whether on another person’s property that is privately owned or on public property. Owners may be held responsible for injuries if it can be proven that negligence played a role in your case. That is why it is so important to have a New Orleans property insurance attorney who can advise you not only of your legal rights, and also determine where negligence and liability lies.
