Pre-Existing Damages And Florida Sinkhole Claims
While property insurance in Florida is required to cover damage from sinkhole activity, many insurance companies work hard to find reasons to deny valid claims. If your property has suffered damage from sinkhole activity — such as cracks in the walls and foundation, sunk or cracked flooring — you have a right to pursue money from your insurance company to properly repair the damages.
At Williams Law Association, P.A., we can assist you if your claim has been denied. Attorney K.C. Williams has been handling these cases since 1995, and we will fight for the settlement you deserve. Call (800) 451-6786 for a free consultation or case evaluation with a lawyer.
Denial Due To Pre-Existing Damages
While the insurance companies and their adjusters should have your best interests at the forefront, their real interest is in finding any reason to deny your claim and avoid paying you what you deserve. One of the most common reasons for denied sinkhole claims is citing pre-existing damage on a property.
They will often use shoddy practices as they claim the damage on your property was sustained prior to your policy period. When that fails, they will often try to settle for cosmetic damages, rather than pay for a repair that will take care of the structural damage present on your property.
