Fort Lauderdale Lawyers Handling Commercial Property Claims

Businesses assume significant risks. To mitigate the risks of owning commercial property, businesses frequently purchase expensive commercial property insurance policies. Unfortunately, many insurance companies do not take their obligations toward the insurance contract seriously.

Following natural disasters and accidents, businesses that have consistently paid toward their commercial property policies rightly expect to be able to recover compensation through claims against those policies.

Instead, many business owners find their insurance companies are more interested in denying or limiting insurance payments than in honoring insurance contracts. Insurance claims that are obviously legitimate may be denied, delayed or diminished through an inadequate settlement offer.

It's Not A Hurricane, It's A 'Flood' | Experience In Fighting Insurance Company Tactics

We are especially effective in situations where an insurer attempts to deny a claim by shrinking the definition of coverage. A common tactic is as follows: A business purchases hurricane insurance coverage to indemnify its commercial property against damages caused by a hurricane or other tropical storm. In such a case, the insurance company may attempt to deny the business's claim by arguing the damage was not caused by a hurricane, but by flooding.

Insurance companies use similar tactics to invalidate commercial property insurance policies for fire, wind damage, and other situations in which the property should be covered.
