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.

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 Delay Tactics Used by Insurance Companies
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 such tactics 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.
