Church Insurance Claims

No matter the nature of a property, every building is at risk in the event of a disaster. For members of a church congregation, it is important to know that their place of worship will be able to recover if a fire, tornado, severe storm, or other catastrophic event damages the facility. An adequate insurance policy should help to provide for the financial needs which are likely to arise after such an incident. Unfortunately, insurance companies too frequently attempt to avoid issuing payments in accordance with the terms of their contract. An insurance company acting in bad faith can put a church in an unnecessarily difficult situation when it needs help the most.

If your church has suffered damage and your insurance company is failing to provide the appropriate assistance, a skilled and experienced attorney can help you to enforce your policy. The Dallas insurance bad faith attorneys of Smith Kendall, PLLC, are committed to helping clients challenge their insurance companies when they do not abide by their contract.

Church Property Damage

Churches take out insurance policies to protect the building that many see as their home away from home. If your church is hit by some kind of disaster, your insurance policy may be intended to cover any of the following:

  • Broken stained glass windows
  • Items lost to theft
  • Smoke damage to carpet and other fabrics
  • Fire damage
  • Roof damage caused by hail
  • Damage caused to the building exterior by heavy wind or falling trees

As most churches do not have ready access to significant funds, addressing these concerns out-of-pocket is typically unrealistic. When insurers fulfill their contractual obligation, however, that should also be unnecessary.
