Do I have a case against Allstate Insurance for wanting to repair the replace my roof?

I have wind and hail damage which cause interior leaking in my bedrooms and in my
attic. Allstate is refusing to fix any damage to the attic as well as replacing
the roof which has missing shingles all over the entire roof. I have been
fighting with Allstate and isn’t getting anywhere with them.

If you believe that this damage is covered under the terms of your insurance policy, which is a contract, you could sue your insurer for "breach of contract," or violating their contractual obligations by not paying. To win, you'd have to prove in court that under the clear terms of your policy, your insurer should be paying.
