Sarasota Insurance Lawyer

Becoming an owner of a new home or business is an exciting time, but accidents can and do happen. Natural disasters, fires, and accidents are all unpredictable events that property owners have to consider when buying a property.

Severe weather such as flooding, hurricanes, and other natural disasters are all threatening to a property owner's investment. While many homeowners choose to protect their property against these risks, few understand all of the details in their insurance policy concerning whether the damage will be fully covered.

Flood, wind, and rain insurance are all common types of insurance that property owners may purchase seeking to protect themselves from financial harm in the event of an emergency; however, insurance companies often fail to provide adequate services to these property owners.

Although most property owners believe that their insurance will cover all of their damages, far too many homeowners and business owners' insurance claims are denied, delayed, or even ignored. This leaves property owners in a dangerous state where they may be left to pay for their own medical bills, property repairs, and replacement of valuable and sentimental property.

Being displaced due to severe damage to your property is enough of an emotional burden without the added expenses of medical bills, repairs, and a neglectful insurance company.

Insurance companies must be held accountable for inadequate protection. Insurance holders pay insurers in good faith with the expectation that they will be protected against expensive repairs, and they deserve proper coverage. If they are denied proper coverage, legal recourse is the next step.

Fighting to Maximize the Insurance Benefits You Deserve

For any property owner in a dispute with their insurance provider, it is extremely important to note that these companies and their agents are determined to pay you the least amount of money possible. Despite the kind words of representatives, you are not your insurer’s first priority.

To control your case, it is important to understand your opposition. Your insurer will have a team of attorneys working on their behalf. You should prepare yourself as well.

With insurers having teams of in-house counsel, it is extremely important for you to have a knowledgeable team behind you as well. The attorneys at Germain Law Group give their clients' cases complete attention and work meticulously to find discrepancies in the insurer's defense.
