Why do you purchase insurance? Most folks buy insurance to protect themselves in case an event happens and to protect their families from financial loss or devastation. So, whether it's damage to your home, boat, or car, the issue is the same - you buy insurance and pay premiums for years. And if an event happens that causes a loss, you expect your insurance company to stand by you and protect you. Well, that's not always the case. A lot of times, we see folks who have paid premiums for years and then, when they make a claim, the insurance company gives them the runaround. The company finds excuse after excuse to deny or delay the paying of the claim. I'm Guy DiMartino, a Florida insurance dispute lawyer, and I'm here to help you if you're having problems with your insurance company. Because insurance companies are so large and powerful, the law in Florida states that if you hire a lawyer to bring a claim against the insurance company and the insurance company ends up paying your claim, the company is responsible for your lawyer's attorney's fees. This fee-shifting law levels the playing field for individuals in Florida when dealing with insurance companies. If you have any questions about making a Florida insurance claim, you can give me a call. I am Guy DiMartino. Have a nice day.
