One of the first questions many people ask in their insurance cases is how long will they have to fight against their insurance company until they agree to pay the requested amount to repair the covered damages. Like any business, insurance companies want to receive monthly payments from customers, but too often they resist paying their customers or insureds a fair amount under the specific insurance claim.
At Smith Kendall, PLLC, our insurance litigation attorneys have settled cases in as little as several weeks following delivery of an initial demand letter. Every claim, of course, is unique. On the other end of the spectrum, some cases may last multiple years where a trial or appeal of a jury verdict is involved. While it is impossible to predict with absolute certainty how any specific case will proceed, the experience we have gained as Texas policyholder attorneys for insureds involved in litigation with their insurance company over the last twelve years has provided us with insight into the many ways these claims often develop.
As always, the hiring of an experienced insurance litigation lawyer is essential in making sure your claim is pursued aggressively and in a timely manner. Contact the Dallas insurance litigation attorneys of Smith Kendall, PLLC today at 214-361-6124 to speak with a lawyer about your case.
