Toronto Insurance Dispute Lawyers
Having to make an insurance claim is stressful, but if your insurance company is disputing your claim or refusing to pay, the results can be devastating. Whether you have been injured in an accident or have experienced a fire loss, you rely on your insurance policy to protect you and your loved ones from the financial consequences of the unforeseen.
Unfortunately, some insurance companies refuse to pay on claims. They may provide reasons for their denial that are confusing or that you believe to be incorrect, or may not give any reasons at all. You do not need to accept a denial of your claim. The insurance lawyers at Fireman Steinmetz Daya LLP in Toronto can help with your insurance dispute settlement and get you the compensation you deserve.
Don’t Take No for an Answer from Your Insurance Company
Insurance policies are notoriously complicated and can be quite confusing. If your insurer is refusing to cover your loss, you may mistakenly believe it is justified somewhere in the policy.

Know Your Rights in an Insurance Dispute
Your insurance company has a duty to act in “good faith” when they are handling your claim. This means they have to act honestly and professionally at all times. In a small number of cases, you may be entitled to additional damages where your insurer has acted in bad faith. Our insurance dispute lawyers can assess your situation and determine whether a claim for aggravated or punitive damages is warranted.
