Attorney Jeff Pekar of Pekar Law, P.A., in Tampa, personally guides clients across Florida through the process of filing an insurance claim for all types of water damage and mold claims. He has a long track record of prevailing for clients who were the victims of unfair claim denials and underpayments.
Hold your insurance provider accountable for the coverage you need after major water damage.
Most often, water damage arises from problems that may appear small at first. These problems are initially easy to overlook, but they can do a lot of property damage to your home if water is allowed to accumulate.
Some common examples of the causes of water damage can include:
Leaks in your roof
Leaks in plumbing or other pipes that can come through ceilings or walls
Water coming into your house through cracks in the foundation
Water damage claims often lead to claim denials and underpayments because insurance companies try to argue that your policy will not actually cover the damage. As your attorney, Jeff Pekar can review your coverage and help you determine the best way to proceed. He will fight for you in litigation, if necessary. A former insurance company attorney, Jeff knows how they will try to dispute your claim and how to protect your rights.
Remember that insurance companies do not have your best interests at heart. An attorney can review the details of your policy and represent you in litigation to protect your rights.
