Fighting Insurance Claim Denials And Underpayments
A common mistake that people make after their insurance company denies or underpays a claim is they assume that is the end of the matter. You have rights, and it is likely that you have more options than you think.
Attorney Jeff Pekar of the Tampa-based Pekar Law, P.A., focuses his practice on helping policyholders across Florida fight insurance claim denials and underpayment of claims. He is intimately familiar with industry practices and Florida and federal laws that protect your rights. He will bring clarity to a confusing, complex process.
Understanding The ‘Fine Print’ Of Your Policy
If your insurance company denied your claim, there may still be coverage. After you filed your claim, the insurance company likely hired an adjuster or attorney to evaluate your claim. Remember, these people are working for the insurance company.
If the insurance company accepted coverage and paid an amount for your claim, it could still be less than what you are entitled to recover under your insurance policy. Many policies include a mandatory appraisal provision that allows you the opportunity to have a panel of three appraisers decide how much it will cost to repair your property damage. Appraisal can be quicker than filing a lawsuit, but it could also mean receiving less than what your policy entitles you to receive. Attorney Pekar can help you evaluate your options and determine the best way to proceed.
