Fire Losses

Fire is a common cause of property damage to Alabama homes. Dry conditions and high temperatures often result in the destruction of many years of hard work and savings. When your property is damaged by fire, it is important that you pursue the full amount of compensation allowed by your homeowners policy.

The Hackney Law Firm represents the interests of Alabama homeowners, business owners and others who have had property damaged by fire. From our offices in Birmingham and Montgomery, Alabama, we help our clients recover the money they need to repair, rebuild or move on after an encounter with serious fire damage.

What We Can Do For You | Montgomery Insurance Dispute Lawyer
Many people who file damage claims find that their insurers are unwilling to pay the requested amounts. Sometimes, this happens because the insurer is looking for an easy way to save money. Other times, the insurer suspects that the insured person is exaggerating the damage or lying about how the fire was caused.

Our founding attorney, J. Danny Hackney, is an insurance industry veteran who is familiar with the tactics insurance companies use to avoid paying fire damage claims. Through our law firm, he can help you by reviewing your claim and performing an investigation of the fire that is parallel to the insurance company’s investigation.

Retain our law firm, and he will work to prove the cause of your fire, use photos and records to establish the replacement values of what was lost, and pursue those amounts zealously – whether in court, in settlement negotiations, or in court-ordered arbitration or mediation. We can also pursue compensation for living expenses while you are displaced from your home.

If the insurance company suspects, or is pursuing charges against you for insurance fraud, we will work to clear you by establishing another cause for the fire.
