Damages Available For a First Party Insurance Case
A question was asked in our Tampa office by a client about what types of damages they can recover in a claim against their own insurance company. This was a homeowner’s insurance claim, and the client was simply flabbergasted at how the insurance company handled the claim. The first thing we did was review the policy of insurance. The policy of insurance is usually going to tell you what types of damages and benefits you’re entitled to.
Every policy is different. Some are ambiguous; some are unambiguous. The ones that are ambiguous usually work in the favor of the insured. If you have a claim against your insurance company or if you feel that they owe you benefits that you’re entitled to under the policy, give us a call. We will evaluate your claim.
Insurance Claims Being Denied
We had a call in Tampa the other day regarding an insurance claim, where the client believed that the insurance company did not properly pay out benefits. Our advice to him was to set up a consultation and to bring his entire policy of insurance, including all addendums, so that we could review it. We do not charge for reviews of a policy. We basically evaluate the policy, look at it, and see if you have a claim. Sometimes, insurance companies wrongfully deny benefits, and that’s where the evaluation begins.
Give us a call and we’ll be glad to look at your policy of insurance.
How to Prove Bad Faith Insurance
Bad faith among insurance companies in the state of Florida can be a serious problem. It involves a complex legal analysis. We got a call in Tampa from a client who believed that their insurance carrier was acting in bad faith in providing benefits for a homeowner’s insurance claim. Assessing this involves a complex analysis, and the first step is to review the complete policy of insurance. We will review your policy of insurance for free, and we’ll let you know if you have a claim. Give us a call.
Common Bad Faith Insurance Practices
Bad faith insurance practices are a topic of conversation all over the internet and in the state of Florida. Determining whether the insurance company acted in bad faith, though, is a complex legal analysis. A client had a very poignant question for us in Tampa the other day that made us think. We brought them in for a consultation.
What are specific instances, generally, for the public out there with regards to bad faith? Generally speaking, it’s when an insurance company fails to resolve a claim when it should have or could have acted fairly or reasonably towards its own insured. Another problem that we have sometimes are just a pattern or practice by an insurance company over multiple claims and multiple insureds of not paying out on claims.
Every case, however, is individual and we need to evaluate your policy to see if there is a claim for bad faith. Give us a call and we’ll be glad to evaluate your case for you.
