Fort Lauderdale Insurance Disputes Attorney
Standing for your rights to insurance companies
Insurance companies are supposed to be there when the unexpected occurs to provide financial support in the wake of a disaster. You pay your premiums every month, therefore, you expect that you will receive full compensation for damage caused in a fire, an auto accident, serious storms, and more. Unfortunately, insurance companies—like any other business—are focused on their bottom lines and making a profit each year. For this reason, insurance companies often partially or completely deny rightful claims, which can come as a huge and devastating surprise to policyholders.
At the Law Office of Joseph J. LoRusso, P.A. in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, we fight for the rights of insurance policyholders to receive the compensation for property damage or injuries that they rightfully deserve from their insurance providers. If you believe a claim has been wrongfully denied, we can represent you in an insurance dispute today.
When your insurance company will not pay
Receiving a letter denying your valid insurance claim can be confusing and can leave you not knowing where to turn next. Simply calling the company often will not work, as companies sometimes do not even provide a reason for their denials. The best way to proceed is to have an experienced insurance dispute lawyer call and negotiate on your behalf.
An qualified attorney will understand how an insurance company works and can present arguments in support of your claim. Additionally, if your claim has been denied due to bad faith or fraud, an attorney can pursue a legal claim against the insurance company under Florida’s Unfair Trade Practices Act.1
Inadequate offers from another party’s insurance company
If you have been injured in an accident caused by another person, you likely expect their insurance company to pay for your medical bills, property damage, lost income, and other losses. Most of the time, however, settlement offers by insurance companies for personal injuries are much too low to cover all of your losses. You should never accept an offer from the other party’s insurance company without first discussing the worth of your case with an experienced personal injury attorney.
An attorney can help determine how much compensation you truly deserve and can negotiate with the insurance company based on evidence of the other person’s fault. If the company still does not offer an adequate settlement, a lawyer can file a personal injury claim in court so that you receive the full amount you deserve.
