To any home or business, a fire can be a devastating experience. Often times fire insurance companies try to take advantage of their customers during their distress by intimidating and confusing them, and by paying out as little as possible for their insuredís losses.

Mattes & Mattes, P.C. has handled some of the largest and most complex business and personal fire losses in Northeastern Pennsylvania . Our cases have ranged from the total destruction of an entire city block of commercial establishments to the destruction of an outhouse. No case is too big or too small.

Usually, insurance policies provide additional coverage for common expenses beyond the physical losses. These may include damage to landscaping by the fire department, fees local fire departments may charge, loss of business and business interruption, temporary housing and living expenses, debris removal and dumpster fees, utility disconnect and reconnection fees, and smoke and water cleanup charges to name a few. Many insurance policies may also provide for total replacement value of your losses rather than a depreciated value. We know that it is vitally important to take a thorough inventory of all losses from the ground on up no matter how small.

If you have had a fire or other peril, damage or property, call the law offices of Mattes & Mattes, P.C. for a free consultation.
