When it comes to home fires and fire damage claims, insurers may employ a variety of strategies to avoid paying their customers the covered losses to which they are entitled.
You are not alone when your insurance company falls short of meeting your needs for rebuilding after a fire. In many cases, an undervalued or denied claim based on a technicality or missed deadline is far from the final say in your claim.
The Law Offices of Anidjar & Levine focuses on challenging unlawfully undervalued and denied insurance claims. We also offer our services to clients in Tampa who intend to submit an insurance claim or appeal and are unfamiliar with the process. If you are unsure how to proceed with your claim, and in need of a fire claims lawyer in Tampa, call the Law Offices of Anidjar & Levine.
We Can Dispute Your Undervalued or Denied Fire Damage Claim
If your property insurance provider has refused to pay for fire damages to your home or business in Tampa, they may still be required to pay for repair or replacement. The legal team at the Law Offices of Anidjar & Levine pursues compensation on our clients’ behalf.
Some clients prefer obtaining an out-of-court settlement to disputing claims in court, mostly due to the costs and delays that accompany a trial. However, insurers sometimes refuse to make sufficient settlement offers. In these cases, we stand by our clients in court. We invite you to call us at 1-800-747-3733 to learn more about the process.
Types of Losses Your Insurance Should Cover
With the proper representation of your claim, your insurance company may cover a wide range of property losses, including those related to:
- Water damage
- Structural damage
- Damage to utilities
- Smoke and soot damage
These represent partial losses. If your damaged property is determined to be a total loss, Florida Statute § 627.702 requires your insurer to offer a full payout for the property’s insured amount.
We Will Work to Keep Your Claim Moving Forward
Sometimes, the most frustrating response from an insurance company is no response at all. With the covered losses that stem from a fire, repairs generally need to begin as soon as possible, so victims can get their lives back on track. An insurer that drags its feet on the settlement process is not treating the victims of these losses fairly.
Our legal team will stand its ground with your insurance company, handling all communications and negotiations so you can focus on other personal outcomes of the disaster you have experienced.
