Count on Us to Resolve Your
Property Damage Claim
As you might have discovered, insurance adjusters often try to settle a claim with a low offer. You don’t have to accept a bad deal. Our team of experienced attorneys at Muller Brazil will help you receive the maximum benefits from insurance companies so you can fix your damaged property and get your life back on track. We can help if your property insurance claim was denied or if your property insurance claim was undervalued.
Types of Property Damage Claims
For denied and undervalued claims, you likely filed a claim and the insurance company came back with a lower settlement offer than you thought, or maybe they even denied the claim altogether. Our team can represent you for free and take legal action against the insurance company to ensure you’re properly compensated for damages whether it be from a natural disaster such as a tropical storm causing water damage or structural damage from trees or sinkholes. We help business owners as well as home owners.

Frequently Asked Questions
What if the damage was partially my fault?
If you’re partially at fault for the damage, it’s okay. You should still be eligible for compensation for the damage the other person caused. For example, let’s say you believe that you were 25% at fault for the accident while the other person is 75%. This percentage is negotiable with the insurance adjuster and our team provides professional counsel throughout the negotiation process.
Does my insurance pay for the damage? Or the other person’s insurance?
When the damage to your property is a result of another party’s negligence (read: carelessness), most often it’s the other party’s insurance company that pays for your damages.
What if the other person doesn’t have a good insurance plan?
In Pennsylvania, for auto accidents in particular, insurance companies offer what’s called Uninsured and Underinsured Motorist Coverage. This insurance will help to cover your expenses (medical bills, property damage, etc.) if the person who is at fault doesn’t have enough insurance to cover it.
Do I have to go to small claims court?
Typically property damage claims are settled between you and the insurance company outside of court through informal negotiations between you and the insurance adjustor. Small claims court, like the kind you see on TV, is most often for parties who don’t have adequate home and auto insurance.
