Insurance Disputes

Florida Property Insurance Attorney

Property insurance is designed to provide property owners with peace of mind. As a property owner you pay a monthly premium, and in exchange the insurance company promises to cover the costs of any damage that may occur to your property that falls under the insurance agreement. However, insurance companies routinely deny valid claims, delay payment, undervalue loss, or refuse to pay to have a problem fixed correctly properties.

Florida Defense Law, P.A. will provide you with the valuable legal representation that you need. Attorney Alexander Scott Dennison is an experienced civil litigator and dedicated to seeing that you get the insurance coverage that you deserve.

Why You Need a Florida Property Insurance Attorney

Level the playing field. There are many benefits to enlisting the help of a property insurance attorney after a disaster has struck. The insurance company has many lawyers and adjusters working on their side to try and deny your claim. As your lawyer, I act similar to a claims adjuster, but on your side of the case. I work with you from the beginning to figure out how your property was damaged and how it falls under your insurance policy. Oftentimes, whether or not a claim is covered depends on small details in the case, and it is vital that your attorney know what to look for in property damage claims.

An experienced property insurance attorney knows your rights and what you are entitled to under your insurance policy. Many disputes arise when an insurance company undervalues or denies a claim. Having an experienced property insurance attorney at your side can ensure that your property is properly valued and that you are getting the full coverage that you paid for.
