Understanding Denied Insurance Claims

When a legitimate insurance claim is denied, it raises questions about the insurer’s commitment to acting in good faith. Our team at Robinette Legal Group is well-versed in reviewing insurance policies and deciphering the intricacies of each case. We recognize that each denied claim is unique, and our attorneys take the time to understand the specifics of your situation to provide you with the personalized representation you deserve.

Insurance Company’s Legal Responsibility According to the Insurance Commission:

“All insurers providing fire insurance on real property in West Virginia shall be liable, in case of total loss by fire or otherwise, as stated in the policy, for the whole amount of insurance stated in the policy, upon such real property; and in case of partial loss by fire or otherwise, as aforesaid, of the real property insured, the liability shall be for the total amount of the partial loss, not to exceed the whole amount of insurance upon the real property as stated in the policy.”

Here also is the Insurance Commission’s interpretation of WV Code 33-17 regarding timeliness and communication with the claimants.  The insurance company is expected to communicate quickly, and fully, and provide all needed forms promptly to all claimants.

Fire Damage Claims in West Virginia

In a matter of minutes, a fire can devastate a home or business, erasing the hard work put into building it. While most insurance policies include some form of fire damage coverage, not all claims are accepted. Even if your policy covers fire damage, your insurance company may unjustly deny your claim. For instance, if a fire marshal’s determination lacks certainty, the insurance company might exploit any doubt to reject the claim.

Our commitment at Robinette Legal Group is to fight for your rights and ensure that you receive the fire coverage outlined in your policy. Our experienced attorneys have a deep understanding of insurance law and can navigate the complexities of fire damage claims, holding insurance companies accountable for their obligations.

West Virginia Water Damage Claims

Flooding or water damage can be catastrophic for homes and businesses. Insurance policies, however, may be written in a way that excludes coverage for certain types of water damage. As former insurance defense lawyers, our team has a comprehensive understanding of how insurance companies may attempt to deny claims in bad faith. We can analyze your policy, help you interpret your coverage, and challenge any unjust denial of your water damage claim.

Snow and Ice Damage Claims in WV

West Virginia’s picturesque mountains and high altitudes bring the beauty of snow and ice, but they also present challenges. Snow and ice conditions can lead to issues like ice dams, roof collapses, and damage to mechanical systems. When filing a claim for such damages, insurance companies may undervalue the claim or attempt to offer only a fraction of the actual damage costs.

Our attorneys at Robinette Legal Group specialize in handling snow and ice damage claims, ensuring that you receive the full value of your claim. We are dedicated to negotiating with insurance companies on your behalf and, if necessary, taking legal action to secure the compensation you deserve.

Our Case Results

Brain Injury

While timbering in WV, a heavy equipment operator sustained a permanent brain injury while performing the duties of his job. What price can you put on the loss of a fully functioning, fully reasoning brain? Jeff Robinette was able to negotiate a settlement that was annuitized to provide for this man for the rest of his life.

Crushed Foot Injury

While working in Morgantown, WV for a large national retailer, our client, a young woman in her early twenties, was ordered to use equipment that she was not properly trained to use. In the course of attempting to complete her task, she sustained a severe crush injury to her foot. Due to this incident, our client lost full use of this foot for the rest of her life and was living with chronic, persistent pain.

Our firm was able to obtain a sizable settlement which took care of all her medical bills and future treatment for her foot injury. The settlement was ample enough to allow this young woman to go back to college and retrain for employment which will accommodate her permanent disability.

Financial Losses

A client we represented in Preston County incurred significant structural damage to a commercial building from excessive snow accumulation on the roof of that building. The insurance company offered a less than adequate amount of reimbursement which would have only partially covered the cost of repairs. Jeff Robinette was able to obtain a settlement amount that would fully compensate the building owner for the damages, lost income, and rental expenses resulting from the damage to his building.
