At The Andres Lopez Law Firm, we defend the rights of residential property owners across Florida. If a fire, storm or other cause resulted in damage to your residential property, and your damage claim is covered by your insurance policy, we will do everything possible to obtain the full amount you are due. Depending on the circumstances, we may be able to obtain more than the policy amount as well as cover the cost of our attorney fees.
Our practice is dedicated to serving the legal needs of individual residential property owners, as well as the organizations that represent them. If you serve on a homeowners association board or condominium board, we can represent your interests while benefiting your owner-members.
Fighting Bad Faith Insurance Claim Denials
Many insurance companies are more concerned about making money than in honoring the agreements they made with policyholders. Rather than pay on legitimate insurance claims, they delay making payments in hopes the policyholder will give up, or offer lowball settlements that are less than the policy values.
Another common tactic is to “deny first, litigate if necessary.” It is based on the cynical calculation that most residential policyholders lack the resources to take an insurance company to court. They reason that, overall, it is cheaper for them to deny valid claims and settle a few lawsuits than it is to pay all valid claims against their policies.
Unfortunately, these tactics work. Many policyholders believe they have no options other than accepting whatever amount the insurance company offers (or doesn’t offer) to pay.
