At Shebell & Shebell, We Get Maximum Compensation For Victims of Fire Loss

If you have recently suffered losses due to a fire, you should seek legal representation immediately.  You will be in a vulnerable position, and blindly trusting your insurance company can have serious financial consequences.  Insurers will often look for reasons to deny your claim or pay out less than you deserve under your policy.

We Represent Victims in All Types of Fire Loss Claims

If your insurance company has wrongfully denied your fire insurance claim—we are here to help.

If your claim is not covered by an insurance policy, we can assist in recovering damages from the parties responsible for the fire.  We utilize renowned specialists to identify who or what was responsible for causing the fire.  Some of the leading causes of fires include: defective appliances, faulty electrical wiring, damaged gas lines, clogged fireplaces, poor vent maintenance, and malfunctioning furnaces.  If you were burned in the fire, you may also be entitled to recover damages from the responsible party for your injuries.

If you are underinsured, and sustained damages beyond the policy limit, you may have a case for insurance malpractice.  We can assist you with proving that your insurance agent or broker negligently failed to procure adequate coverage to cover your losses.

If your home, apartment, garage, or place of business was damaged in a fire, we can help you to recover the maximum amount.  A fire may result only result in physical damage to your property, but also other types of economic damage, including lost income due to interruption of your business, and costs of re-establishing operations.

Our Attorneys Stand Up To Insurance Company Lawyers

Many policyholders experience unexpected resistance by the insurer when seeking to recover on a claim.  Your insurer may suspect that you have committed arson or insurance fraud.  If your insurer is questioning your honesty, asking you to sign documents or testify at a deposition, you have the right to be represented by a lawyer.  These are some signs that your insurance company is questioning your honesty:

  • They are asking questions about the value of your property or its contents
  • They are scrutinizing your financial situation, possibly requesting bank records to establish motive for insurance fraud
  • They are asking if you have an alibi for the date of the fire
  • They are questioning your friends and family about the contents of your home or business

An insurance company may even give evidence obtained through this type of questioning to the police, who can then open an investigation against you.

If you or a loved one has suffered damages due to smoke or fire, you have the right to representation.  The experienced lawyers at Shebell & Shebell are on your side.  Call us at 866-957-5237 or contact us online today.

My hero, my attorney who is always there for me!

Tom Shebell has represented me and my family members in several cases. Tom is the most prepared lawyer I have ever seen, and demands respect in and outside of the court room. His staff is amazing and never makes you feel as if you are bothering them. I always feel that I am his most important client, and he always takes my call. If he is busy, I am reassured that he will get right back to me and he does. His knowledge of the law and research on your case is impecable, and will never give up until he gets the results that he feels are the best for you. Although he is the most professional attorney I have ever worked with, he refers you call him Tom (not Mr. Shebell), and I am most comfortable calling him Tommy. His cell phone is on his answering service, to comfort you and assuring you that you can reach him if necessary, no matter what. I will never retain another lawyer, unless it is a case that he cannot handle. That has never happened to me. Unfortunately, Tommy is handling a very emotional case for my family, and whenever we discuss it our meet together he is very comforting to us. For a family man, and extremely busy attorney to handle matters like this, it truly takes a special type of person, and extraordiinary human being. If anyone take my advise, Tom Shebell, III is the only attorney that should be called first, and believe me you will not make another call. As I said in my title, he is my true "hero"!

I am Grateful I was able to have Thomas Shebell for my Lawyer

Thomas Shebell and his staff were very good to work with. They were always professional, but also very down to earth and real. I always felt that my best interest was their main concern. I was always able to call with questions and concerns and was never made to wait or to feel like I was inconveniencing anyone. I always felt that they knew instantly who I was and what was going on with my case. In the end, Thomas was able to get the best possible settlement for me. I am very grateful to have been treated like my case truly mattered to them.

Ferocious Fighter

Tom Shebell and his firm came highly recommended by several reputable people in the community. I come from a family deeply rooted in law enforcement, so I greatly appreciate that Tom grew up with the law as well, hailing from a family of highly respected attorneys. He easily grasped the complexity of my case and eased my concerns, while ferociously fighting for me. One of the moments that stands out to me the most was when I voiced a concern over possible retaliation and he said, "they're going to have come through me first." I wholeheartedly believed him then and now. There is no one else I'd want in my corner than Tom Shebell.

A League Of His Own

Mere words cannot express my gratitude to Thomas F Shebell III. He took on a case, that other attorneys would shy away from and fought vehemently for my husband, myself and our daughter. His tenacity is only surpassed by his kindness and compassion for his clients well-being. I would recommend Mr. Shebell III to anyone who may need an attorney to guide them through a difficult time and see them through to a successful end. Many thanks again to him and his staff!!
