The cost of fighting the Black Forest fire near Colorado Springs has risen to about $8.5 million dollars, according to the Denver Post. The fire has burned over 14,000 acres and destroyed more than 500 homes, also claiming the lives of two people. As the fire reaches status as being fully contained, firefighters are combing a small area that is believed to contain the origin point of the fire. Investigators are also examining the home where two residents were killed, apparently while packing up to leave the area. Nearly 1,000 homes in an area covering an additional 10,000 acres are still under mandatory evacuation, although at one point almost 40,000 people had been made to leave their homes.
As summer fire season sets in, it is a good time to think about the insurance that you carry on your home. Hopefully, all of those people who lost their homes are fully covered by insurance, and will be covered for their financial loss. Unfortunately, experience teaches that insurance companies don’t always keep the promises that they make. When you purchase an insurance policy, you believe that if your home is destroyed by fire, the insurance company will pay to restore or replace your home. But Denver insurance dispute attorneys know that sometimes, when faced with a large claim, insurance companies will do just about anything to avoid paying out on your claim. Sometimes, insurance companies are more concerned with protecting their profits than with keeping the promises that they made when they sold the policy in the first place.
Speak with experienced Denver insurance dispute attorney John R. Fuller today to discuss your options if your insurance company is trying to avoid paying your valid claim. Insurance companies have a number of tricks. In some cases, they may deny a claim altogether, hoping that the policy holder either won’t know or won’t protect his or her rights. In other cases, they may offer a settlement that comes nowhere near paying for all of the damage. When you pay your insurance premiums, you deserve the full, fair value of your insurance claims. John Fuller is an experienced Denver insurance dispute attorney who will work hard to see that you get exactly what you deserve.

9 News reports that football helmet manufacturer Ridell has been ordered to pay over $3 million to the family of a high school student in Las Animas County who suffered brain injuries while wearing a Ridell helmet. The suit claims that Ridell failed to adequately warn of the dangers of concussion. Ridell faces a similar suit in California, as well as complaint by numerous former NFL players. The jury here in Colorado determined that damages in the case totaled $11.5 million, and that Ridell was 27% responsible for the young man’s injuries. That makes the award in the range of $3.1 million (27% of $11.5 million). The family’s attorney plans to ask the judge to find Ridell responsible for the entire $11.5 million judgment.
