A Trusted Florida Insurance Lawyer
Insurers will often let you down when you need them most. Instead of supporting you in your time of need, they frequently ignore, delay, underpay, or outright deny your claim. An experienced insurance lawyer can help protect your rights and keep insurers from taking advantage of you.

When Should You Call an Insurance Lawyer?
You should consider getting an attorney if you have been paying premiums on an insurance policy, yet your insurance provider is uncooperative after you make a claim. This may include situations when they:
- Ignore your claim
- Delay the process unreasonably
- Offer an inadequate settlement
- Refuse to make a payment
- Deny a valid claim
- Misrepresent information
- Fail to disclose information
What Compensation Can You Claim?
The law requires insurance companies to act in good faith. This means they must fulfill the agreements under their policies.
If you believe your insurer is acting in bad faith, you may have a right to take the company to court. Depending on the situation, you could sue for breach of contract, for tort (a wrongful act), or both.
Why Insurance Disputes Are So Complicated
Insurance law and insurance policies can be very complex. The compensation to which you may have a right, and how much you could get, depend on many factors, such as:
- The terms of your policy
- The type and extent of the damages you suffered
- The behavior of the insurance company
- Certain actions you may have taken or failed to take
Sometimes, our clients do not even realize that their insurance coverage includes a particular type of damage or loss. That is why it is critical to talk to an experienced insurance lawyer as early in the process as possible.
