How Long Can the Insurance Company Delay Full Payment of a Claim?

Florida Statutes and your insurance policy have conditions, duties and requirements that you have to comply with before and after filing a property damage insurance claim.  Included in this are deadlines that policyholders and insurance companies must comply with. Florida recently changed the laws regulating property insurance claims and there are new deadlines for policyholders and insurance companies to comply with  to fulfill  statutory duties and conditions and terms under your insurance policy. 

Most insureds do not know what these conditions are, let alone how to comply with them.  If not responded to correctly, it may affect the payment of your claim. Hiring a lawyer is the best way to ensure you are in compliance with your obligations.

A good property damage attorney will also have extensive knowledge and experience to navigate your policy and the complex Florida legal system. They will understand the laws that govern your circumstances and know how they impact your insurance claim.

An attorney will know the proper processes for filing the claim and communicating with insurance companies. If you settle out of court, they will be able to advise you on the pros and cons of the offer.  If your case goes to trial, the attorney will be able to represent you in a court of law.

What to Do if Your Florida Hurricane Claim Was Denied

Insurance companies often deny or try to underpay Florida hurricane claims. You do not have to accept your insurance company’s decision on your claim.  You can challenge their decision if  your insurance company fails to offer adequate compensation due to you under your policy.

If your carrier has denied your claim it may  be the result of a misunderstanding or misinterpretation. Insureds can file a complaint with the Florida Department of Financial Services if your insurance company isn't correctly following the terms of your policy.

You can reach out to your claims adjuster. If you have additional supporting evidence for your claim, the adjuster may reevaluate it.

Or you can hire a property damage attorney to help you get the recovery you deserve.
