What should I do right after I have been involved in an Insurance dispute claim in Florida?

There are many situations in which an insurance company does not do the right thing by taking advantage of someone who does not have a lawyer and is not well versed in the law. This problem may arise during a dispute over a denial / delay in payment of a claim or a dispute regarding coverage. I have personally handled insurance disputes involving the following types of policies:
- Auto Insurance
- Property Damage Insurance
- Personal Umbrella Insurance
- Health Insurance
- Disability Insurance
- Life Insurance
- Renter’s Insurance
- Homeowner’s Insurance
- General Liability Insurance
- Excess Insurance
- Dental Insurance
- Vision Insurance
- Supplemental Insurance
In these, and other types of insurance policies, if a carrier denies a claim or fails to act as a reasonably prudent insurance carrier would act under the same or similar circumstances, you have a claim under Florida law. Not only can the right lawyer force the insurance company to pay the claim that they may be wrongfully denying, but as the prevailing party, in most cases, you can get the insurance company to pay all of your lawyer fees and costs as well.
Sometimes the insurance company doesn’t deny a claim, rather they may just under pay on a claim or stall paying or require you to jump through a never ending maze of unreasonable hoops before they will pay. For these and many other type of insurance denial/ dispute situations, you need an experienced lawyer who understands the insurance contract and fights for your rights. The insurance industry denies claims, many times, as a business strategy in which they assume a certain percentage of their insured won’t fight the denial or underpayment and they will save money.
If an insurance company does something that you feel is in violation of your agreement with them you should contact me right away. Many times the insurance company, not the insured, has to pay the lawyers’ fees in these situations if we prevail. There are time limits and deadlines built into these policies for the appeal or challenge to an insurance company decision. Don’t let these deadlines pass without having the matter reviewed by a lawyer before it is too late.
