Experienced Jackson, TN Insurance Dispute Attorneys
Vigorously pursuing compensation for Tennessee insureds when disaster strikes
Anyone who has dealt with an insurance company knows that their intention is to pay the lowest sum possible for a claim. They do this by finding reasons flimsily hidden in policy language to decrease the value of your claim in order to justify a low settlement offer. In some instances, insurance companies issue outright denials of completely valid claims.
That is where the Jackson insurance dispute attorneys at McWherter Scott & Bobbitt come in. We help homeowner and business policy holders when their insurers look to avoid payment for covered damage rather than standing behind policies they sell when it comes time to protect their customers.

Events which can trigger an insurance claim
Insurance policies typically cover you for natural disasters, accidents, and other unintentional damage such as termite infestation or mold damage. When you have experienced a loss, your policy will determine the events for which you are covered. The majority of Tennessee insurance claims involve damage caused by:
When you have financial losses after enduring damage to your home or business, you incur certain expenses until you are able to move back into the home or building. If your insurance policy contains this coverage, you should be entitled to payment for these added expenses as the costs wouldn’t have been incurred had the triggering event not occurred. You may be entitled to payment for:
- Loss of business/rental income
- Utility or rental deposits for temporary living arrangements
- Reimbursement for dining out during displacement
- Payroll and related business expenses
- Storage fees
Insureds should not have to worry about whether they’ll unexpectedly be out thousands of dollars for a situation beyond their control. We all buy insurance to alleviate that fear and insurance companies carefully market it to us to target those fears. When they don’t honor their end of the deal, you need help from seasoned legal professionals.
We are there when you need help with a life, disability, or health insurance claim
When any devastating personal event occurs, the last thing you should have to experience is the life insurance company denying the claim, or being denied disability coverage despite your medical diagnosis. After years of paying premiums and unraveling complex language regarding deductibles and in-network care, you shouldn’t have to worry about your health coverage, either. One of McWherter Scott & Bobbitt’s lawyers can set the record straight and help you obtain the policy benefits for which you paid.
Policyholders often don’t realize that carriers will construe policy language in favor of themselves in any given claims situation. It’s how insurance companies stay in business. They gloss over the benefits and leave policyholders believing that they’re paying for protection from any number of catastrophic events. You have a right to the insurance coverage that you were led to believe you had and you need a strong, experienced law firm in your corner to protect your future.
