Experienced Mississippi Insurance Dispute Attorneys Helping Families with Residential Property Claims
Helping Mississippi property owners get insurance compensation when accidents happen or natural disasters strike
Homes suffer damage for many reasons — fire, wind, hail, flooding, tornadoes, and other natural disasters. Pipes can freeze, heaters can malfunction, and lightning strikes. When insurance covers the natural disaster or accident that occurs, homeowners have a right to expect prompt payment for the full amount of damage. If personal property is stolen or damaged, homeowners and tenants who have property insurance should not have to wait for an unreasonable period to get paid.

Partner Brandon McWherter understands insurance contracts, Mississippi insurance laws, and how the insurance industry does business. We negotiate fair settlements and litigate unfair offers. We work to get your home back to the way it looked and functioned before the damage and to get the full value of damaged or missing property.
Some of the more typical claims we handle
Most policyholder have enough stress dealing with the loss of their property; dealing with the insurance company itself beings additional challenges. You want to work with a seasoned Mississippi residential property claim lawyer for the following matters:

In insurance claims, there is no requirement to prove fault. As long as the premiums were paid, the manner of the loss was covered in the policy, and the property was damaged because of an enunciated manner, then the homeowner or tenant has a valid claim.
