Why Perez Mayoral Is the Best Choice for Homeowner’s Insurance Claims

Insurance companies, eager to maintain their profit margin, often try to circumvent their contractual obligations to you (after all those years of paying high premiums) by denying or decreasing settlements for valid claims. They may do so by asserting that:

  • The loss claimed is excluded from your policy
  • The actual damage is less than the amount claimed
  • You damage falls below the policy’s deductible
