When Your Insurance Company Investigates You For Arson, It’s Time To Get Legal Representation

If you own a property that has been damaged by fire, your insurance company probably sent out an arson investigation team immediately. Professional arson investigators work for the corporation — not the policyholder. Denying, reducing or delaying fire damage claims because of possible arson is a common tactic. It is a bad faith insurance practice, and it is illegal under Texas insurance laws.
