When You Need an Insurance Claims Attorney
If your insurance company has denied your claim or has failed to respond in a timely manner, you may need to call in a hurricane property damage attorney to assert your legal rights and protect your financial future.
Unfortunately, insurance companies have been known to undervalue or deny claims when first submitted. This is because they are a business, and their focus is on maximizing profits, not in paying out claims. And because of the widespread devastation across Florida from Irma, your claim will just be one in several hundred thousand that requires review and consideration before any payments are made.
This can prove to be a financial hardship for you and your family if your insurance company denies your claim or does not settle it in a timely manner. When it comes to that, you need an insurance claims attorney to fight for you and get you the support you need as soon as possible.
Under Florida law, only a licensed attorney can represent you in civil court in your property insurance dispute claim. If successful, your attorney’s fees are paid by your insurance company and will not come out of your settlement.
