FLORIDA – September 21, 2020

 

Wites Law Firm has years of experience dealing with a variety of first party insurance claim disputes in Palm Beach County between the policyholder (first party) and the insurance company (second party) based on disagreements over the contractual obligations outlined in the specific language of the insurance policy (contract).  Experienced insurance claim lawyers on their professional team can be helpful with policy reviews, as well as productive communications with insurance companies who do not uphold the terms of an insurance contract between the homeowner and the insurance carrier that is meant to protect the subject property, often a family home with cherished possessions. When water damage claims become problematic in Palm Beach County Florida, the assistance of legal counsel may facilitate any corrections, or disagreements regarding covered perils in the insurance policy related to water damage from a roof leak, a broken pipe, hurricane, fire, or alternate form of water disturbance.  Timely processing of a water damage claim may reduce the possibility of residual effects, including mold and mildew that can adversely affect occupants of the insured property and decrease the value of the home.

A Florida insurance attorney can provide the same services as an insurance adjuster at similar costs before formal litigation begins.  The benefit of hiring an insurance attorney is two-fold: 1) the influence of legal counsel often pressures insurance companies to review and reconsider denied claims in a timely manner, and 2) if the case moves to litigation, attorneys’ fees are covered as part of the insurance settlement in Florida when the insured wins the case.

Insurance companies will usually compensate homeowners in accordance with the insurance policy language, so it behooves homeowners to gain an understanding of all outlined coverages  relevant to damage replacement and exclusions to their homeowner’s policy.  Wites Law Firm can offer valuable guidance through policy review and discussion with clients.  When individual’s claims are denied due to dishonest dealings as a matter of company policy, policyholders should secure legal counsel to assist in the settlement of the matter.  Denial of legitimate claims on a paid-up policy could be an incident of consumer fraud, which is actionable in court.
