Fire Damage Lawyers in Encino
Dedicated to Protecting Your Family & Home
You may be able to control a lot of things – but not Mother Nature!
We live in Southern California, where fire season is part of life. When
a natural disaster, such as fire, strikes and your home is damaged, you
expect your home insurance carrier to step up and have your back. But
this is not the case. Insurance companies only care about their pockets.
They routinely deny claims in the hope that you simply accept their answer
and move on.
The sole purpose of paying for fire insurance is so you are covered in
the event of a fire. If the insurance company isn’t honoring its
end of that deal, get in touch with an Encino fire damage attorney. The
legal team at Vahdat & Aboudi, APLC is committed to helping victims
get the financial help they deserve after their home is damaged in a fire.

How an Attorney Can Help
The aftermath of a fire can be difficult and very costly. But if you are
like most property owners in California, you likely have a fire insurance
policy that protects you in the event of such a disaster. However, insurance
companies are notorious for being unwilling to cooperate – especially
when victims need it the most. After all, you are not their priority –
it’s protecting their profits.
To that end, instead of giving you the compensation that you deserve based
on the premiums you have been paying for years, they may try to put you
at fault for having started the fire. Or they may accept the claim but
only offer you far a small fraction of what you are owed and need to cover
Working with a fire damage attorney in the Los Angeles County area is a
good way to get the full compensation that you deserve. The legal team
at Vahdat & Aboudi, APLC will handle and file everything correctly
to process started as quickly as possible. We will do everything we can

within the limits of your policy.
Compensation in a Fire Damage Claim

available in a fire damage claim include the replacement costs or repair

matter is especially important if you suffered physical injuries due to
your fire damage. If you or a loved one was burned or injured, your lawyer

Handling a Denied Fire Damage Claim

you to streamline this daunting process so you can get one step closer
to getting your building or home repaired or get the compensation you
deserve if you lost your home.
