Summer Grill Fire Safety

Homes and apartments throughout New York City’s boroughs are notoriously close together but that doesn’t stop anyone from breaking out a grill during the summer months. Unfortunately, if a grill gets left unattended or is not used safely, a fire may break out and that can result in serious property damage. Due to the fact that New York City’s housing is so close together, a fire can easily damage more than one home.

If a fire has damaged your home, hopefully, the insurance company has appraised the amount of damage accurately and will give . you the amount you deserve. Unfortunately, insurance companies don’t want to give away their money and may undermine you. If your home has been damaged by a fire that occurred on someone else’s property, you may have to file a third party claim. This situation can be difficult because you may also have to deal with a lawsuit against your neighbor or their insurance company. It is important that you retain the services of an experienced insurance law attorney who can tell you when an insurance company is not giving you what you are entitled to. In addition, they can assist you in navigating through the complexities of a third party claim.

Make sure to be safe this summer when grilling to keep your home and your neighbors’ homes safe.
