Need an experienced wildfire insurance claim lawyer?

We work for you ― not the insurance company.

In recent weeks, multiple wildfires have burned over 2 million acres in the Texas Panhandle, Oklahoma and Kansas, taking the lives of seven people, thousands of livestock and causing millions of dollars in damage. High temperatures and low humidity created fire-prone conditions and strong gusts of wind further fueled the flames.

Was your home, ranch, land or business damaged or destroyed by wildfire?

No doubt about it, wildfires are devastating. Adding insult to injury policyholders often find insurance companies delay, deny or make unacceptably low offers to legitimate policy claims. McDonald Law Firm has the experience of helping victims of natural disasters recover the maximum compensation allowed under their homeowner or business owner’s insurance policy.

We get it. You just want to get back to normal.

For years you’ve faithfully made your insurance policy payments. In the aftermath of the fire, you’re now counting on the insurance company to hold up their end of the bargain. It’s not too much to ask.

Let’s face it: Insurance companies are in business to make a profit.

Insurance companies work very hard to protect their bottom line after large-scale disasters like wildfires. However, they also have a duty to conduct business honestly, fairly and in good faith. Simply put, they can’t look for ways to cut corners or cheat you out of full and just compensation for the losses covered under your insurance policy.

You need someone on your side, protecting your best interests. McDonald Law Firm is committed to protecting the rights of people who have suffered property damage or other insured losses as a result of recent wildfires. We understand how to evaluate your wildfire damage claim and we’ll fight for the maximum compensation allowed under your policy.

Real people. Proven results.

Is it time to contact a lawyer?

When an insurance company unfairly offers you less than what is fully owed under the provisions of your policy, it may be time to contact one of the experienced wildfire insurance lawyers at McDonald Law Firm. We’re familiar with insurance company tactics and we know how to recognize when an insurance company is acting unfairly or in bad faith.

We hold insurance companies responsible.

Our insurance litigation team will carefully review the language of your insurance policy, assess the damage to your home, ranch, land or business and evaluate the reason for your insurance company’s decision. We will then make a determination on the amount your insurance carrier rightfully owes you under your policy.

Generally speaking, if we cannot reach a fair resolution with your insurance company, we will move forward with trial. Your lawsuit may also include additional damages for your carrier’s conduct in its handling of your legitimate claim.

To evaluate your claim, we will need the following documentation or information:

Insurance Policy

The document detailing the terms and conditions of your insurance contract.

Declarations Page

The page that outlines the “who, what, where, when and how much” of your insurance policy.

Correspondence

Letters, emails or handwritten notes between you and your insurance company.

Damage Estimates

Any approximations of cost you’ve received to repair or replace damaged property.

Fort Worth tornado damage, Bank One Tower, March 28, 2000.

Why Choose Us?

We get it. Our firm suffered severe damage from a catastrophic storm.

We know first-hand the kind of devastation caused by Mother Nature. In 2000, Dan McDonald’s law firm was badly damaged by a powerful tornado that ripped through downtown Fort Worth. Not only did it uproot our business, but it disrupted lives. Since that time, we’ve worked hard for countless other storm victims. We understand the need to get back on your feet and into your home and business.

Do you have ALE coverage?

Most standard homeowner’s policies include coverage for Additional Living Expenses (“ALE” or sometimes known as Loss of Use). This coverage reimburses any required expenses needed for you to maintain a normal standard of living while you are waiting for your home to be repaired.
