What We Do for
On paper, an Assignment of Benefits (AOB) sounds like a great solution for contractors. This arrangement allows you to file your claim directly with your customer’s insurance carrier, rather than providing your customer with a repair estimate and waiting for them to then submit their insurance claim. It sounds generally simpler for you, the customer, and the carrier.
Unfortunately, it does not always work out to be quite so simple. This puts you into the position of having disputes with both the property owner and the carrier. You may run into situations where the carrier altogether refuses to pay you under the assignment of benefits, or they may underpay the claim and offer you little to no recourse for disputing the underpayment.
Whatever the case may be for your unique situation, rest assured that we have seen all manner of property insurance disputes. We have the knowledge and expertise necessary to ensure a fair and timely payment, and we are prepared to go to bat for you in court, if necessary.
“During a snow storm, my wife came to me and said she saw water coming into the house. When I went outside to investigate, I noticed an ice/snow buildup on the gutters. I filed a claim with my insurance company, but they denied the claim. I contacted Property Claims Attorneys. I was thoroughly impressed with how they were able to work this through quickly and get a fair settlement. I generally don't like to give 5-star ratings (I always thought there would be room for improvement), but to do anything less here would be unfair. When I made the decision to pursue this litigation, I couldn't have expected a better outcome. Thanks again, Charles, for your help."

“My insurance company of 30 years would not resolve my claim equitably. Charles Pearson of Property Claims Attorneys facilitated a professional and expedient settlement. I wholeheartedly recommend them."

“We had a fantastic experience with Property Claims Attorneys representing us. They had attorneys that specialized in each part of the process needed to get our case resolved as quickly as possible. Everyone on their staff that we dealt with was professional and helpful. Don’t hesitate to retain them for your legal needs.”

"Upon consultation, we retained Property Claims Attorneys to represent us. This was the best decision we could have made. Our insurer continued to deny our claim and Property Claims Attorneys kept us abreast of the situation. The efficient manner handling our case was noted, and subsequently, resulted in our insurance company covering our claim."

"Our roof started leaking during a major storm in February 2020. We immediately called our insurance company and after waiting some time they finally came out to look at our roof. To our surprise, they partially denied our claim with reasons that did not make sense to us. We were extremely frustrated, as we were left with little aid and an active roof leak right before storm season. As a result, we hired Property Claims Attorneys for assistance. They kept us informed of the process and timeline of events as things changed and were delayed due to COVID. After some back and forth between them and the insurance company on our behalf, we settled and are very happy with our new roof. We highly recommend Property Claims Attorneys and, as a realtor, I encourage my own customers to call them if their property insurance claims were denied. I encourage you to do the same."
