Making Insurance Carriers Pay for Property Damage

Recent hail storm events have caused significant property damage to homeowners in Colorado, and many are having difficulty getting property insurance carriers to pay for roof and siding damage or losses to their homes or common interest communities.

Colorado law provides homeowners with significant rights and remedies when insurance carriers unreasonably deny or delaying paying homeowners for losses.  In Colorado, an insurance carrier that unreasonably delays or denies a claim can be held liable for twice the amount of the covered benefit and payment of a homeowner’s attorney fees.  Additionally, Colorado recognizes claims against insurance carriers for damages due to an insurance carrier’s breach of contract, bad faith conduct and violations of the Colorado Consumer Protection Act.
