If you don’t see your type of homeowners insurance claim on this list, contact us for an in-depth case review; this is not a comprehensive list of every type of case that we accept.

If an insurance company denies your claim or requests further evidence, for example, your lawyer will be able to meet these demands with tailored legal strategies.
Your Property Damage Claim May Turn Into an Insurance Dispute
You can do everything right as a claimant and still have your homeowners insurance company reject or mishandle your claim. Insurance companies are notorious for putting their bottom lines over their clients. You may need an attorney to review your homeowners insurance policy, determine your legal rights and negotiate with your carrier to successfully settle your claim.
In many situations, simply hiring an attorney is enough to make a homeowners insurance company take you seriously. An insurer knows that an attorney has the ability to go to trial – something that can be costly for the insurance provider. In an effort to avoid this, the insurance company may be more willing to accept the claim and offer a fair settlement.
If a homeowners insurance company in Florida is guilty of treating your claim in bad faith, meaning without a good-faith attempt to resolve it according to state insurance laws and the terms of your policy, your lawyer can file a lawsuit against the insurer. A bad-faith lawsuit can penalize an insurer for misconduct, resulting in a payout not only for your original homeowners insurance claim but also for the inconvenience of bad faith, as well.
