Florida is no stranger to natural disasters. Hurricanes, floods, tornados, heat waves, hail, wind and rainstorms—the elements can be brutal here. Not to mention so can plumbing leaks, water losses, roof leaks, theft, vandalism, and other unfortunate events. And as any local property owner knows, Florida’s weather can wreak havoc on one’s home and land. Not to mention so can theft, vandalism, and other unfortunate events. This is why we have dedicated our entire practice to property insurance claims. Your home is important to you, and when your insurance company doesn’t come through when it should, you deserve other options.
If you have taken the appropriate steps to insure yourself in the event of a disaster, but your insurance company isn’t willing to accept the claim you filed, we can help. When insurance claims are not upheld to the standard they should be, we can help you fight back then as well. We know a lot of the players in the insurance industry and many of our attorneys have experience on both sides, so we understand how these companies work. We have the knowledge, experience, and support staff to handle every aspect of your case regardless of how big or small.
Our firm is fully equipped to handle all aspects of your insurance claim, and we can step it at any stage of the claims process. If your insurance company is engaging in bad faith practices, or otherwise violating any of the provisions of your insurance policy, you are entitled to file a lawsuit and take them to court if they don’t uphold the conditions of your contract.
Some of the most common types of bad faith insurance practices include:
- Delaying a claim unreasonably
- Failing to respond to claims in a reasonable timeframe
- Intentionally misrepresenting policy provisions
- Purposefully performing inadequate claim investigations
- Underpaying or denying valid claims
- Harassing policyholders and other bad behavior
Just because your claim has been denied, delayed, or otherwise mishandled doesn’t mean you have to give up. If your policy states that you should receive coverage for the property damage your home or business has suffered, then the insurance company has broken the law by denying you that coverage and can be sued for breach of contract. We can help you hold your insurer accountable if they’ve been negligent, even if that means taking them to court.
While you may be reluctant to take legal action, we can assure you that the choice is entirely up to you. Our attorneys are happy to discuss your claim with you, whether it’s been denied or you haven’t even started on it yet, and to help you determine whether working with a lawyer is right for you. We offer free consultations to all prospective clients; if you choose to work with us, we will let you dictate the direction of your case while assisting in whatever manner you feel most comfortable with.
