Delayed Claims

Florida Property Damage Claim Lawyers

If your property was damaged in a hurricane or as a result of a fire, wind, water, mold, or any other accident or disaster, you would like to think that your insurance company will handle your claim in a timely manner. This is not always the case. Some insurance providers use delay tactics to try to get policyholders to accept low settlements, trying to hold on to as much of their profits as possible.

The Knoerr Law Group stands against delays, denials, underpaid claims, and other underhanded practices by insurance companies. Serving the Florida area, our insurance claim attorneys know how to deal with unreasonably delayed property damage claims. We can put the necessary amount of pressure on the insurance company to get your claim moving, and we can even take your case to court if needed. Our goal will always be to recover the full and fair amount of your claim.

Common Insurance Company Delay Tactics

Delaying a property damage claim may work to the insurance company’s advantage in different ways. It may be a way of bullying a property owner into accepting an unfairly low settlement. It also lets the insurance company continue investing premiums, which generate interest and additional profits.

Our attorneys have seen insurance companies use delay tactics such as:

  • Delaying responses to submitted claims
  • Unreasonably delaying the investigation and/or processing of a claim
  • Changing representatives or adjusters
  • Requesting unnecessary documentation or records
  • Requesting information in increments, rather than all at once

Such delay tactics can make days, weeks, or even months pass by with little to no progress in the resolution of a property damage claim. A property owner may begin to feel desperate, wondering how to recover the money they need to repair and rebuild.

Hear It From Our Clients
  • I don’t usually write reviews but in this particular case, I felt compelled to do so on behalf of Linda Knoerr and her staff. Without doubt Linda has become one of our family’s heroes!

    She exemplified confidence and compassion for us when our options seemed quite limited. Also, the likelihood of a successful decision seemed that it wasn’t going in our favorable direction. Well, Linda and her staff prevailed and came away with a financial victory for our family. Linda always took the time to explain all of the upcoming legal steps and always maintained her calm composure yet showed her tenacity to the insurance company when necessary!

    I would absolutely recommend Linda Knoerr’s Law Group without hesitation!

  • Linda Knoerr is an outstanding lawyer. She has a unique balance of personal and professional skills. Linda has intellect, perserverance, and relationship attributes not collectively found in my experience with business and broad personal and family related practices. My case was not a layup to present and win. Linda's legal knowledge, personal skills, relationships and persistence let to a settlement that was remarkable...and consequently fully acceptable.

  • We cannot thank our lawyer Linda Knoerr and her team for coming to our rescue in fighting our terrible home owners insurance company, Tower Hill, who left us high and dry after damage to our roof and total loss to our mater bedroom and our living room. Linda would not rest during the fight with Tower Hill. We have never been in such a situation where our protector (Tower Hill) walked away when we needed them the most. Linda Knoerr is a pitbull for justice. And who would have known that insurance companies can do the things they do when we pay them to protect us!!
