Hurricane Matthew - Insurance Company's Adjuster seems friendly, why do I need an insurance claim lawyer?
Question: Why should I hire a Lawyer if my insurance Company's adjuster says he is going to help me out with my claim?
Answer: Keep in mind that insurance companies are a for profit entity. An insurance company exists solely to make a profit for itself and it's shareholders. These corporation's employees, managers, and executives as much as they want to make it appear that they are there to help you, their ultimate goal is to close your claim fast and without paying any money or as little as possible.
Insurance Corporations will adjust their payouts in their favor after hurricanes. You should also remember that insurance policies are merely contracts that are filled with confusing verbiage and legalese. However, there are strong Florida statutory protections and legal precedent to protect your rights and your property after a storm. Only a Florida Licensed lawyer experienced in insurance claims handling and litigation can truly protect your rights against your insurance company.
Most insurance corporations will read their policies in their favor and against you, the insured, and the one that pays the premium each month. For most homeowners, their home is their largest asset. You should not accept an insurance company’s denial or a payout that is less than what you truly need until you consult with a licensed Florida insurance claim attorney.
Florida homeowners, you pay good money for your insurance policy. Remember, there is statutory and case law precedent in Florida to protect you from unfair treatment by your insurance company. Only a licensed Florida attorney can give you leverage against your insurance company and eventually sue them if you have to.
