Property Insurance and Insurance Lawyers in Toronto
The Insurance Lawyers at Devry Smith Frank LLP (“DSF”) in Toronto have the advantage of having acted for both policy-holders and for insurance companies in disputes about property insurance, including those arising from accusations or evidence of fraud, arson or misrepresentation. In this respect, we have provided advice and representation in respect of the following:
- The value of a property-insurance claim – From time to time, an insurance company and its policyholder simply do not agree on the value of a claim. We can provide advice and assistance in presenting and responding to issues related to the value of a claim, including those related to what evidence is necessary, how it should be presented, and what other options are available, including the availability of statutory appraisal.
- Whether a claim is covered – We can provide assistance in determining whether a particular claim is or is not covered by an insurance policy and, if a claim is denied, represent the policyholder or the insurance company in situations in which the denial of the claim becomes the subject of litigation.
- Misrepresentation and changes in risk – Evaluating whether there has been a misrepresentation in the application for insurance or a change “material to the risk” leading to an insurance policy becoming void is an area that requires considered advice, something which DSF can provide.
- Fraud and arson – Unlike most law firms, we can provide advice and guidance on the specialized areas of fraud and arson as they relate to insurance claims.
