Ahmad v. Allstate Fire and Casualty Insurance Co.
The court found that, under Hinojos, the insurer's pre-appraisal partial payment of claim did not relieve the insurer of liability under the Prompt Payment of Claims Act. Additionally, the insurer's post-appraisal payment of the remaining portion of the claim along with interest did not foreclose the insurer's liability under the Act because there was no mutual intent to dispose of the insured's claims and the insured still was entitled to attorneys' fees
