Houston's Top Personal Injury & property insurance claim attorneys
SMART: WE HAVE THE KNOWLEDGE
Collectively, our lawyers have a combined 35 years of experience in insurance litigation and have practiced in all 54 counties across Texas and in all Texas Federal Districts. In fact, The Cedrick D. Forrest Law Firm's attorneys worked in the insurance industry before joining the firm, so they bring a strong understanding of insurance company practices. When your claim is filed, you need someone who is willing to take the fight to the insurance companies. We have successfully battled the giants in the insurance industry because of our experience and our compassion for our clients.
We have the knowledge, resources, and ability to achieve successful outcomes. As a champion for the underserved in Texas, The Cedrick D. Forrest Law Firm aims to shine a light on the inherent bias insurance companies lean on when determining to pay claims of economically challenged policyholders. Bad faith claims are our strong suit. We know that insurance companies are bound by the policy terms to treat each policyholder fairly. When they don’t play fair, Courts allow policyholders to file suits to expose bad-faith actors and the outcome-oriented investigations done by the independent adjusters they hire.
The Cedrick D. Forrest Law Firm is dedicated to advocating for the underserved and undervalued communities in Texas.
AGGRESSIVE: WE FIGHT TO THE FINISH
We understand that the most important question in a property damage claim is: What caused the damage? Insurance companies consistently deny claims without hesitation. We take each claim denial as a new challenge to pursue. We utilize our experts and resources to enable an accurate assessment of coverage and liability. Our claim review process provides us with a very detailed and all-inclusive estimate for determining and justifying a proper settlement.
Our attorneys have provided expert legal advice for the underserved communities of color and economically depressed areas in Texas since our founding. When we handle property insurance claim disputes, we hire the most experienced and qualified experts to evaluate your insurance claim and offer testimony at trial. It is our standard of practice to hire experts such as structural engineers, contractors, independent roofing consultants, forensic accountants, and other professionals to perform a thorough assessment of all possible causes of damages and the costs to repair or replace property damage. Our use of these professional expert witnesses sets us apart from other insurance law firms.
We are experts in the courtroom that rely on experts in construction to prove our case. Our clients are confident in our abilities and we have a proven track record of success to earn your trust and your confidence.
PERSONAL: WE MEET OUR CLIENTS’ NEEDS
At The Cedrick D. Forrest Law Firm, we give our clients the respect and attention they deserve. We know that our work has a direct impact on our Clients. We work hard to protect your most valuable asset- your home. Whether you have a residential claim or a commercial claim - we will give the time and attention you deserve to guide you through the policy maze and get your claim settled for the maximum amount. We don’t leave money on the table. We make sure it ends up in your pocket.
Filing a claim under your policy should not add more stress to your life. The insurance claims process is between you and your carrier as parties to a contract. That means when you file a claim the insurance company should not treat you as an adversary. They should promptly pay your claims as per the Texas Prompt Payment statute mandates. They should not unnecessarily delay payment once coverage is confirmed. You should be treated as a fiduciary.
When greedy insurance companies fail to treat you fairly, The Cedrick D. Forrest Law Firm is here to step in and call out instances of bad faith. Your home is your castle and we are here to protect your investment. We are here to give your case the attention it needs and bring about the settlement you are justly entitled to.
"When you've been injured or your property has been damaged, you deserve a smart, aggressive, and personal trial attorney to represent you."
