A: A Louisiana attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for three weeks. The dispute you describe sounds like it met an impasse between your assertion for a new foundation and the insurance carrier's position. One option may be to reach out to Louisiana attorneys to determine whether the claim is viable to litigate. It's possible they could need to arrange for an engineering or architectural professional to review the insurance company's inspection reports, or possibly perform independent surveys on your behalf. Good luck
