Property damage may occur due to a willful act of vandalism, an act of nature, or an act of negligence. The damaged property may be a vehicle, a building, land or landscaping, and even things like fencing.
When your property is damaged, figuring out its worth is not always easy. There are straight-forward costs such as the actual costs of replacement or repairs, but often there are emotional costs as well, particularly when the damaged property held sentimental value. When filing a claim for property damage, it is important that you take the true cost of your loss into account. This will help you gauge the accuracy of any insurance settlements you are offered.
If you believe your insurance company is not treating you fairly or if your loss is worth significantly more than you are being offered, it may be time to speak to an attorney.

Different Types of Property Damage Claims
Some of the leading causes of property damage in Colorado are:
- Severe weather
- Fire damage
- Mold or bacterial growth
- Foundational cracks
- Broken pipes
- Construction defects
- Motor vehicle accidents
In some cases, insurance will cover the entire cost of repairs or replacement for these items after the policy deduction has been met. In others, these same companies may try to find loopholes or workarounds to cheat victims of property damage out of fair compensation. When this happens, it is best to call our office and request a free consultation where you can discuss your claim and learn about your best options.
Insurance Bad Faith
Insurance bad faith may take the form of a flat claim denial, even when coverage is guaranteed in your policy. However, insurance denial is far from the only unfair and unethical behaviors insurance companies have been willing to adopt.
Some of the most egregious of these include:
- Performing biased or inaccurate investigations into your claim
- Unnecessarily delaying the processing or payment of a claim
- Trying to blame the cause of damage on something not covered
- Wrongly claiming the damage is not covered by your policy
- Making threats to drop your coverage if you pursue a claim
Insurance companies will tell you not to hire an attorney. This is because they know, when they are treating you unfairly, that legal action may result in their being forced to pay what you are owed. Your insurer cannot penalize you for talking to a property damage lawyer. Any threat to the contrary is just that. But if your insurance company is threatening you, talking to an attorney sooner, rather than later, is in your best interests.
