If you feel that an insurance company has breached its contract with you and is acting in bad faith when it comes to honoring a claim, consider contacting an experienced, aggressive Florida law firm specializing in insurance bad faith law as soon as possible. At the Law Offices of Margery E. Golant, P.A., we will move rapidly to make sure that your insurance company processes your just claims quickly and completely instead of finding excuses to delay or reject them.
Our law firm is committed to helping clients resolve property damage insurance claims disputes. We are available to assist you if you believe your insurance claim may have been wrongfully denied, underpaid, or you have been offered an insufficient settlement. Potentially, this can amount to a claim for insurance bad faith. Some insurance companies routinely deny, delay and/or underpay
policyholders’ property damage claims.
WHAT IS INSURANCE BAD FAITH IN FLORIDA?
Under Florida law, “insurance bad faith” is defined as an insurance company’s failure to fairly settle a claim. The most common ways that insurance companies improperly adjust claims are by:
· Unreasonably delaying a claim;
· Misrepresenting policy coverage;
· Denying legitimate claims
· Demands that a claimant unreasonably provide documents or perform certain actions
· Refusing to timely and fairly settle a covered claim
The reality is that some insurance companies are relentless in consistently finding ways to challenge legitimate claims for the sake of profits. Other bad faith claims arise out of claims examiners’ negligence or misconduct in reviewing them. In either case, it is important that you retain an experienced insurance bad faith claims attorney as soon as you suspect you may be the victim of bad faith.
HOLDING INSURANCE COMPANIES ACCOUNTABLE
The deceptive practices of some insurance companies are a major source of revenue for them. The more expensive it is to pay out on a legitimate claim, the more likely it is that an insurance company will refuse to do so. In fact, some insurance companies routinely attempt to challenge expensive claims on invalid grounds, sometimes even leveling baseless allegations of “fraud” at their policyholders. It makes us angry to see insurance companies using their policyholders’ unfamiliarity with the complexities of Florida insurance law to their own financial advantage. That is exactly why we make it our mission to prevent them from doing so, and to hold them accountable when their tactics cross the line.
Under Florida law, an insurance policyholder has a bad faith claim against his or her insurance company when the company fails to act in good faith to properly adjust or settle a claim in a timely manner. If these facts apply, policyholders may take this action even if they have received some payment from their insurance company on their claim. To make such a claim, the policyholder must demonstrate that the insurance company acted unfairly. Because of the frequent claims in Florida due to numerous storms and other hazards, and because disputes can often arise between insurance policy holders and insurance companies regarding these claims, bad faith insurance issues frequently arise in Florida.
Let us begin working now to hold your insurance company accountable. The sooner you act, the sooner we can hold claims examiners and the insurance companies that employ them accountable for denying, delaying, and/or reducing your claim in bad faith. We make it a cornerstone of our legal practice to understand the specific circumstances of a case so we can adopt our legal approach accordingly instead of relying on cut-and-paste, generic methods of litigation. If you have properly established a bad faith claim, the insurance company can be required to pay some or all of your attorneys’ fees for the necessity of having had to take that step.
We know Florida law forwards and backwards when it comes to the loopholes and ambiguities exploited by claims examiners and we promise to do everything in our legal power to bring your case to a swift and smooth conclusion. If we need to take your case to trial, we have the expertise and zeal needed in the courtroom. We are proud of our track record, having achieved financial justice for our clients, and we want to do the same for you.
Do not waste more time in unproductive exchanges with dishonest claims examiners. Speak to a determined Florida insurance bad faith claims lawyer today to get moving toward getting your claim resolved fairly and quickly. Having a strong insurance bad faith law firm on your side will often make a difference in the early outcome. If your insurance company understands that it faces costly litigation, it is likely to be more agreeable to resolving your claim quickly. Unless you have a knowledgeable attorney in your corner, your insurance company will have a major advantage. Insurance companies are familiar with their rights and have their own experienced attorneys. The average homeowner making an insurance claim normally has none of these advantages or this experience.
