Florida Sinkhole Insurance Claim Attorney
Sinkhole Damages and the Law
Anyone who has lived in or around Florida understands the dangers and potential
loss of property caused by sinkholes. Just this past year, new laws pertaining
to claims for sinkhole damage were enacted in our state. This legislation
makes using an aggressive
Florida insurance claim lawyer even more vital when sinkhole damage has occurred. With over 50 years
of combined years in practice, LeavenLaw has assisted many thousands of
Floridians to get their
insurance claims settled in a fair and positive manner. Without their assistance, you may
find yourself unable to obtain the money you need to repair structural damage.
Insurance adjusters work for their companies, not you. As a result, there
are times when a valid claim is denied. Frequently, insurance companies
rush to get you to settle for a specific amount which may not be the full
compensation you are owed. The new laws allow an insurance company to
restrict loss coverage to just the main building as given in your insurance
policy. They also redefine what is considered sinkhole loss and what is
thought of as structural damages. Attorneys at the firm are fully familiar
with these laws and how they affect your ability to obtain compensation
for your losses. They use this knowledge and their experience to fight
for a favorable resolution to your claim.
Resolving Disputed Claims
According to the statutes, in the case of a disputed claim both the insurance
company and a neutral evaluator can be used to verify that there is a
sinkhole and that it caused damage to your property. Depending on what
your policy states, the insurer is still responsible to see that you are
paid to stabilize the land, your building and make the necessary repairs
to its foundation. Even if your insurance company is not in disagreement
as to the presence of sinkhole activity, it is still important that your
full rights be strongly protected by an experienced attorney.
