Insurance Fair Conduct Act Claims
Property insurance is regulated by Washington state law and these statutes can be nuanced and complicated. While it is tempting to pursue a property insurance claim yourself, you might be setting yourself up for disaster.
The Insurance Fair Conduct Act (“IFCA”) which took effect on Dec. 6, 2007, covers policyholders whose insurance company:
- Unreasonably denied/delayed their claim for coverage or payment of benefits.
- Violated particular regulations governing claims-settlement practices.
An attorney experienced in property insurance law can evaluate your situation and make sure that you are abiding by all of the statutory requirements necessary to preserve your rights.
