Your insurance policy is a contract, and just as with any other legally binding contract in California, both parties must adhere to the terms. However, when it comes to insurance settlements, there may seem to be a lot of gray areas in regard to how much the company must pay in order to treat you fairly. According to the California Department of Insurance, there are state standards to ensure that you receive a fair settlement.
When it comes to insurance claims, there are many examples of damages that can prompt people to turn to their insurance company. For example, a construction company may be hit hard by a natural disaster or unexpected challenges that have arisen which involve workers. Construction company owners count on their insurance company to back them up when certain things go wrong. Unfortunately, some construction company owners (and those who own other types of businesses) are let down when their insurance company denies the claim. This happens frequently in Los Angeles and all over California and we know how devastating a denied claim can be.

In this post, we will examine some of the consequences that may come with a dispute, especially with regard to cases where the outcome is unfavorable.

If you are a general contractor or run a large construction company, you might come across a myriad of challenges, some of which this blog has addressed.
