Insurance Claim Lawyers
Helping Florida Residents Get Fair Compensation
Our attorneys have the knowledge and experience necessary to fight insurance companies, and we’re committed to getting you the compensation you deserve.
Filing an Insurance Claim
You pay insurance premiums for years, or even decades, expecting that the insurance company will be there for you if disaster strikes. But, paying out fair compensation cuts into an insurance company’s bottom line. That means the insurance company you thought of as your safety net may be working to avoid making payment, or to minimize your recovery.
Some of the ways an insurance company may seek to save money at your expense include:
- Leading you into making statements, missing deadlines, or making other mistakes that may allow them to deny your claim
- Pushing for a quick settlement before you have complete information about your losses
- Undervaluing your property or underestimating the cost of repairs
- Delaying payment as a means of pressuring you into accepting inadequate compensation
Many people find it difficult to navigate insurance negotiations because insurance policy language is complicated and technical. It can be hard to know exactly what your rights are—especially when the insurance company representatives are telling you that you aren’t entitled to compensation, or that your policy limits compensation in complex ways. Insurance companies know this gives them the upper hand, and that many people will become discouraged or desperate to make repairs and give in.
Our attorneys understand the complex language in your policy, and know how to enforce your rights under that policy. We are dedicated to holding the insurance company to its obligations and ensuring that you receive fair compensation for your losses in a timely manner. Working with an experienced attorney from the beginning can minimize insurance company delaying tactics, protect against missteps, and provide a buffer that keeps the insurance company from pressuring or misleading you.
Preserving Your Property and Your Insurance Claim
After a hurricane, flood, or accident that damages your property, your first instinct will be to clean up. Securing your property and preventing further damage is an important step, both toward rebuilding and toward preserving your rights under your insurance policy. But, documentation counts if you end up in a disagreement with the insurance company. If circumstances allow, take the time to document the damage with photographs and notes before you start making changes. Then, take steps to secure the property and prevent further damage, such as boarding up broken windows and protecting against additional water damage.
Insurance Company Disputes
If you’ve filed an insurance claim on your own, but are having difficulty reaching a fair settlement or the insurer is delaying payment, we can help.
Our attorneys understand that when you’ve suffered serious property damage and other losses, you may not be able to wait months to receive compensation. Unfortunately, insurance companies know that, too, and may use your sense of urgency against you.
Get an Experienced Insurance Claim Attorney on Your Side
If you filed an insurance claim on your own or with the help of a public claims adjuster, the best time to talk to a lawyer is at the first sign of trouble, dispute, or delay. It’s natural to hope for the best, especially after you’ve been through a traumatic event such as a natural disaster or an accident that impacted your home, business, or other critical property. However, the longer you wait, the greater the opportunity for mistakes that could reduce–or even eliminate–your ability to collect.
If you’ve suffered serious property damage, you’ve been through enough. Save yourself from the added stress and possible loss you’ll face doing battle with the insurance company on your own.
Suing the Insurance Company
One reason Florida residents may hesitate to seek help with insurance claims is that they are concerned about the cost of hiring an attorney. However, Florida law protects policyholders whose insurers act in bad faith. If you must file a lawsuit to collect benefits under your insurance policy, the insurance carrier will often be responsible for your attorney fees.
