At every step of the process, it is important to have an experienced attorney looking out for you as you seek maximum compensation for your property damages.

Neutral Evaluation In Florida
Under neutral evaluation laws, when the insurance company disputes the existence of sinkhole activity on a property or what repairs may be needed, either party can file for “neutral evaluation” with the Department of Financial Services. The department has a list of neutral evaluators whom you can choose from. They will render their opinion, as well as recommend any repairs they feel are necessary.
The neutral evaluator’s report will not be binding on the parties. In fact, despite being called neutral, most of these evaluators are paid for by insurance companies. We can help you navigate this process and make sure that your repairs get covered properly, and as timely as possible.
