Tallahassee Insurance Dispute Attorney

We Can Take On Your Insurance Company and Protect Your Legal Rights

Insurance companies are in business to make money. While many of them advertise they put their customers first, the reality is their top priority is always protecting their own bottom line. In many cases, this leads to claims being wrongfully denied and valuations that leave policyholders covering costs that are supposed to be covered by their policies. If this has happened to you, The Cotterall Law Firm can help you enforce the terms of your policy and make sure that you are fairly compensated for your personal or business loss.

What if My Insurance Company Wrongfully Denied My Claim?

When you submit a claim to your insurance company, you expect them to handle your claim in good faith and in accordance with your policy. Unfortunately, this is not always what happens. Although you pay your insurance premiums and expect coverage under your insurance policy, insurance companies regularly deny valid claims and impose unreasonably low valuations for a number of different reasons and under a variety of different circumstances. 

Under Florida law, insurance companies are required to respond to policyholders’ claims in good faith. Florida law also imposes certain requirements for insurance contracts, and insurance companies are required to abide by the terms of their policies. When they fail to do so, they can be held accountable in court. At The Cotterall Law Firm, we can help you enforce your rights.

Some common examples of improper practices leading to insurance claim denials and low insurance payouts and settlements include:

  • Bad-faith denials
  • Failing to promptly conduct a thorough investigation
  • Misleading representations made to policyholders
  • Refusing to communicate with policyholders in a timely fashion
  • Unreasonable and legally-unsupported interpretations of policy language
