Published November 17th, 2020 by Claim Help Lawyers

Property loss or damage can feel devastating. In such a fraught time, it's important to have someone on your side to advocate for you.

Unfortunately, we can't always rely on our insurance companies to fairly investigate and value our losses. Their concern is their own liability.

That's why hiring a property damage lawyer to help you through the claims process is the best way to get what you're owed. Consider the following factors as you search for a property damage attorney.

They're Local

Look into attorneys who have been practicing in your state for at least eight to ten years. They should know the area and the insurance companies that operate in it.

On the Florida Bar website, the date of each attorney's admittance to the State Bar is listed on their profile. Many attorneys will also list this information on their website. Pay attention to it during your search.

They're Experienced

Take the time to do your research. Read testimonials and comments. Look up the firm on every review site you can find. How many reviews mention a good settlement?

Finally, talk to anyone and everyone in the insurance industry that you can find in your network. Ask them which lawyers they've gone up against the most and which ones they never want to see again. Chances are those are the good ones.
