Insurance Dispute Lawyers in Tampa

Zealously Advocating for Injury Victims in Tampa, St. Petersburg, Clearwater & Throughout Florida

You pay your premiums on your insurance every month with the expectation that your insurance company will take all of the necessary steps to make timely payment in the event of a car accident, serious injury, or illness. However, it is important to remember that these companies make their business off of individuals paying high premiums who never end up having to use their insurance.

When the time comes that an unfortunate individual has suffered a severe injury and needs financial support to get through their excruciating circumstances, insurance companies are not eager to offer their full support but will instead try to pay the minimum amount possible. In some terrible circumstances, they may delay payment, pay less than what you are owed, or simply deny your claim without a clear explanation. When you have been treated in this unjust manner, it is time to reach out to our insurance dispute attorneys in Tampa as soon as you can.

Contact us now at (888) 214-1442 to learn how we can hold insurance companies to their work so that you get the compensation you need.

Why It Is Critical to Have a Dedicated Insurance Dispute Attorney

According to Florida’s laws, an insurance company is not allowed to refuse or even delay a payment to a claim that is legitimate, nor can they provide only a partial payment. When this occurs, the insurer has committed an illegal breach of their contract, which means that the person seeking the claim can sue their provider for violating their word of supplying timely, complete financial compensation. This is an extremely difficult feat to accomplish on your own, however. Not only would you have to be able to discern the detailed complexities of the distinct insurance policy and the nuances of insurance law, but you would also have to face the insurance company's large army of legal representation.

This is why it is so crucial to have insurance advocates on your side who can carefully analyze all of the ins and outs of your particular case concerning the distinct insurance laws. They will not only anticipate the strategies of the insurance company but take proactive steps in leveling the field so that the company does not make excuses or even try to portray you as the scapegoat.

Insurance Claim Payment Times

Every insurance company has a different length of time that they are allotted to pay a claim, which also entirely depends on the type of accident or incident, the level of injury or suffering, and the specific kind of policy. For example, if a victim of a car accident has made an insurance claim, the insurance company usually must at least respond to the client within 2 weeks, and then start investigating the incident within 10 days of obtaining evidence of the accident. Then, the claim must be allotted to the claimant in approximately 90 days. However, these times can greatly vary depending on the kind of accident and level of damage, so it is essential that our insurance dispute attorneys hold the company accountable for their responsibility to propvide you financial support.
