Do I have to give my insurance company all the information they are asking for?
In most cases the answer is going to be "yes." At times, an insurance
company will request unnecessary information as a method of delaying your

them by supplying information that will help your claim along. On the
other hand, you should also have an attorney from the firm review all

How much time does the law allow for my repairs to be done?
Whether your claim is for damage caused by a
sinkholes or a
hurricane, there is no statutory requirement for when the repairs have to be completed.
They only have to be accomplished in a "reasonable time." Your
insurer does have a 90 period in which to deny or pay your claim, except
for when there are factors beyond the insurance company's control.
If you feel that your repairs are being unnecessarily delayed, contact
your claim attorney for fast assistance.
Should I accept my insurance company's first settlement offer?
Commonly, insurers rush to give you a settlement offer for several reasons.
First, you will not have legal representation and they know that with
an attorney your opportunity to be fully compensated will be greatly enhanced.
Second, they understand that you see the damage that has occurred and
can be persuaded to take an offer that appears to help. Based on the thousands
of legal disputes we have favorably settled, our advice is to
contact the firm immediately and take no actions until we have reviewed your case.
