Why Choose Williams Law, P.A.

When to Hire a Florida Insurance Claims Lawyer

Policyholders purchase insurance and keep up with their payments under the belief that should anything happen, their insurance companies will uphold their end of the deal and offer fair benefits according to the terms of the policy. Unfortunately, insurance carriers are for-profit companies that may use many different tactics to minimize client payouts. An insurance dispute lawyer protects claimants from being taken advantage of by large and powerful insurance companies.

You may need to hire a Florida insurance claims lawyer if an insurance carrier is mishandling your claim. For example, if the carrier is not offering coverage up to your policy’s maximum or has rejected your claim without a valid reason, you may need legal assistance to go up against the company and argue for a fair settlement. A lawyer can represent your rights and best interests – as well as improve your peace of mind after a disaster – by negotiating with an insurance provider on your behalf.

How Much Does an Insurance Claims Lawyer Cost in Florida?

The goal of hiring an insurance claims lawyer in Florida is to increase your payout for property damage, physical injuries or other losses. In this vein, Williams Law, P.A. operates on a contingency fee basis to protect our clients’ recoveries. We will never recover more than you do for a claim and will front all of the costs of your insurance claim or lawsuit for you. 

At the end of your case, if we succeed in securing financial compensation for you, we will take our fee as a reasonable percentage of the settlement or judgment award. If we do not win your case, we will not charge you anything for our legal services, guaranteed. In addition, under Florida law, if an insurance company is guilty of bad faith, it may be forced to pay for your attorney’s fees in addition to paying the underlying claim.

What Is the Time Limit on an Insurance Claim in Florida?

In Florida, laws known as statutes of limitations place time limits on the right to file an insurance claim or lawsuit. A statute of limitations on a personal injury case, such as a car accident or slip and fall claim, is four years from the date of the accident or discovery of the related injury in Florida. The time limit on a property damage insurance claim, however, is only one year, in most cases. 

If an insurance company is guilty of a breach of contract, such as by wrongfully denying your claim, a special rule extends the statute of limitations to five years from the date of the loss. In addition, you may have more time to file if you suffer additional damage from a windstorm or hurricane that comes after the initial damage (e.g., mold or mildew from water damage). Even if you think you might have missed your deadline to file an insurance claim, consult with our attorneys to find out if there is still time.

What to Look for in Your Florida Insurance Claims Lawyer

Not all attorneys are created equal. Take the time to research your options for a Florida insurance claims lawyer. Look for the following traits when choosing your attorney:
