LaHatte Law Wins Bad Faith Insurance Case Against Allstate

LaHatte Law Wins Bad Faith Insurance Case Against Allstate

We are pleased to announce that our firm recently won a homeowner’s bad faith windstorm case against Allstate Insurance Company and obtained a bad faith verdict while doing so.

LaHatte Law represented an elderly homeowner named Norman Hall against Allstate Insurance Company during a trial in Shreveport, Louisiana with the 1st Judicial District Court for the Parish of Caddo.

The case began on February 12, 2019, when Norman Hall filed a Petition for Damages with Allstate Indemnity Co. Mr. Hall claimed that on April 6, 2018, a storm featuring wind, hail, and rain caused damage to his residential property. The storm included damages to his roof and walls, which led to water damage and the need for extensive repairs.

Though Mr. Hall filed a claim with Allstate, the homeowners insurance company failed to pay for replacement roofing materials and the full amount of temporary repair costs. This led Mr. Hall to take action by filing the petition.

The matter went to court on June 11, 2020 for bench trial, and nine witnesses were called to testify. After reviewing the evidence, witness testimony, and the law, the Court decided in favor of Mr. Hall.

As a result of the bad faith verdict, Allstate now must pay a penalty as well as cover our attorney’s fees. The total award granted to Mr. Hall totaled $55,210.38.
