We Help Insurance Policyholders Recover from Disaster.

We understand that recovering from a disaster is stressful. If your property sustained damage after a disaster, dealing with your insurance company can be overwhelming. First-party insurance claims are often delayed, underpaid, or denied, leaving frustrated policyholders without the proper recourse. 

Williams Hart & Boundas is dedicated to helping policyholders navigate their first-party insurance claims. Our experienced trial lawyers have the resources and connections to fight dishonest insurer tactics and ensure a fair and speedy recovery. Our first-party insurance team represents all types of policyholders, including school districts, municipalities, residential and commercial businesses on their insurance claims.

First-Party Insurance vs. Third-Party Insurance

First-Party Insurance Claims

A first-party insurance claim is between the policyholder and their insurance company. An example of a first-party insurance claim would be a homeowner whose home sustains damage during a hurricane. In this case, the homeowner files a claim with the insurance company to cover the damage and compensate according to what is included in the policy.

Third-Party Insurance Claims

A third-party insurance claim is between three parties: the policyholder, the insurance company, and another individual. The claim is made by the individual, not the policyholder or insurance company. Liability claims are the most common type of third-party insurance claim. For example, if you cause a motor vehicle accident that injures another driver or passenger, the injured person can file a liability claim against your insurance company.

I will forever be grateful that I chose the right firm for my Roundup case. From the first phone call until the verdict, I have always felt so comfortable and respected by everyone I worked with from the firm. I was represented by people who truly care about their clients and their needs and feelings. I wish there was an option to give them 1000 stars on here! They are now much more than my attorneys... I am blessed to call them my friends!
