Receiving a Fair Settlement
Florida Statute § 627.702 entitles you to receive a full payout for the insured amount when your damaged property is deemed a total loss. Sometimes, your insurance company may claim the property is only partially damaged, allowing it to issue a smaller payout than if there was a total loss.
When you employ a fire claims lawyer in West Palm Beach, we will work with repair professionals and contractors in your area who will help us determine the true extent of your losses and whether you have experienced a total or partial loss at your property after the fire.

- Water damage
- Smoke and soot damage
