Insurance Disputes

Dealing with an insurance company on a claim is rarely a simple process. Gathering documentation of an injury or damage and prosecuting your claim can be frustrating, time-consuming and, sometimes fruitless.

Our Florida insurance lawyers represent clients who need assistance obtaining payment from their insurers. We have significant experience handling claims under auto, life and disability policies. When coverage disputes require litigation, we don't hesitate to pursue clients' claims in court.

Insurance law is complex and varies from policy to policy. It is therefore an enormous benefit to have legal representation when dealing with an insurer.

Important differences exist between individual disability policies and employer-sponsored policies. Failure to pay on claims under individual policies is actionable for bad faith insurance practices. Failure to pay under employer policies does not trigger a bad faith claim. Additionally, employer policies have very strict requirements for payment.

Our recent successes include handling disputes over life insurance policies containing exclusions for intentional suicide, and those concerning “own occupation” language in long-term disability policies. The own occupation disputes center on the job you were performing at the time of your disability. Frequently insurers attempt to avoid payment because you were sick at the time you became disabled; therefore, in their eyes, you had no occupation at the time of your disability. We have challenged this tactic on numerous occasions.

We have established precedent in Florida, holding the disability carrier liable even when the disability policy was valid in another state

Don't hesitate to contact our experienced insurance dispute attorneys. We can make your claims process much less stressful.
