Let Us Fight for Everything You May Be Owed for Hurricane Damages
If you have damage to your property, including your home and other structures, business, or farm, you want to try and ensure your insurance company compensates you for everything covered in your policy.
Unfortunately, insurance companies do not always pay what you think they should. More than 20 years of experience negotiating has underscored the fact that some insurance companies have sometimes refused to give a client a fair offer until we get involved.1
Many of our clients came to us because they found themselves on the losing end of a battle with highly trained, skillful insurance company negotiators, lawyers, adjusters, and other well-coached professionals.
Insurance companies are for-profit businesses. The less they pay you, the more they may be able to keep for their own profits.
That is not wrong, it’s just business. What is wrong are some tactics we have sometimes seen some insurance companies use to try to pay their claimants as little as possible. Not only do we negotiate with insurance companies day after day, but some of our employees used to work for insurance companies. They know firsthand some of these tactics.
How Can We Help You Fight For Your Full Property Damage Claim?
Some insurance companies can sometimes undervalue. misclassify, or deny claims – whether medical or involving property damage to your home, business, or other structures.
Impartial Professionals Value Property Damage
We have access to professionals from Asheville to New Bern who can impartially assess your property damages. Let’s say, for example, your home or business sustained wind and/or water damage as a direct result of a hurricane. We are able to call on independent appraisers, mold and water damage experts, engineers, contractors, and others for an independent, impartial estimate of what your damages are. Have an attorney in your corner who can hire any necessary professionals on your behalf.
How We Can Help
Let us fight for everything you may be owed for hurricane damages.
Some insurance adjusters may be overworked trying to evaluate thousands of claims and mistakes can sometimes be made. If you think the offer you’re getting from the insurance company is not fair or is taking too long, contact us. Or, if you simply don’t have the time to deal with the hassle, paperwork, and bureaucracy involved in the recovery process, we may be able to help.
We will review your situation for free, and evaluate if we think we can make a difference. Or, if we think you’d be better off continuing to negotiate on your own, we’ll let you know that too.
If we accept your property damage claim, we will review your insurance policy and try to help you understand it.
A Focus on Property Damage
The Law Offices of James Scott Farrin is one of the largest plaintiffs’ firms in North Carolina, and we have extensive resources to draw on for you. The NC Eminent Domain Law Firm is one of those resources, and it is a division of our firm.
The NC Eminent Domain Law Firm evaluates properties and businesses that the state needs to take in order to build roads, bridges, or other public projects. There are only a small number of attorneys in North Carolina who have previously worked as attorneys general for the state of NC, and left to represent property owners. Several of those attorneys work for the NC Eminent Domain Law Firm. They left the state government because they saw too many property owners leaving good money on the table when trying to go at it alone.
We Work Where You Live
Our over 20-year-old firm is one of the largest plaintiffs’ firms in North Carolina. We have recovered in excess of $1.1 billion1 total for more than 46,000 clients since 1997. And, in one of our proudest moments, we helped lead a team of law firms in obtaining a historic $1.25 billion1 settlement for 18,400 claimants who were discriminated against by the United States government.3
While we have achieved national and state-wide recognition, we are local first and foremost. With 17 offices across the Carolinas, we, too, have felt the local devastation of hurricanes. During Hurricane Florence, for example, our offices, particularly in New Bern, Fayetteville, Greenville, and even Charlotte, were affected. After Hurricane Florence many of them worked hard to try to help where needed most. In Wilmington, there was so much debris, one of our attorneys traveled to that area to help chainsaw trees and other vegetation to help homeowners to return home. Our staff raised more than $5,000 worth of goods and funding for Hurricane Florence victims. Giving back is a top firm priority.
Our legal team is experienced. We have lawyers who have years of experience handling property damage claims – large and small. Gary Jackson played a leading role in the nationally-publicized synthetic stucco lawsuit victory.3 He represented over 300 homeowners, several commercial businesses, and many homeowner associations in those cases, recovering over $25 million.1
Many of our roughly 200 staff members (including our lawyers) have years of experience in their fields. Our litigation team is led by Senior Attorney Hoyt Tessener, who has handled cases throughout the U.S.3 and has been responsible for verdicts and settlements of over $90 million.1
We’ve been fighting insurance companies on behalf of our clients since 1997 by negotiating and litigating. We use technology and data analytics to try and uncover information – fast.

While we do not have a crystal ball, we will not take your property damage case unless we believe we may be able to get you a larger settlement from the insurance company. We work on a contingency fee basis.2 Over 20 years of experience negotiating with insurance companies has shown us that many insurance companies means we have the experience and knowledge to fight for you.1
We strive for a win-win all around.
