Florida Property Damage Claims
Property insurance, such as policies for homeowners and commercial property owners, is designed to protect you in the event of damage caused by weather, fire, water, vandals, thieves, accidents involving your car, and the failure of structural building factors, such as plumbing, electrical, roofing, and more. When your home, vehicle, or building has suffered damage or complete destruction due to no fault of your own, you depend on your insurer to act promptly and in good faith. Your insurer should settle your claim in a timely manner and provide you with the payment you deserve under the terms of your policy. These types of property damage and losses are stressful enough without problems dealing with your insurer.
At Schirmer Law, we concentrate much of our practice on property damage claims of all kinds. Our firm is experienced in helping clients file claims, resolve disputes or issues with ongoing claims, and take on bad faith claims against insurers who violate their contractual obligations. Our team deals with insurance companies on a daily basis; we know how they operate, the tactics they may use to deny or underpay your claim, and how to fight back with a legal strategy in search of a fast and efficient result. If your insurer is not acting in a fair and just manner, we strongly urge you to contact us as soon as possible.

Florida is a state that often experiences extreme weather, such as storms, hurricanes, and lightning that can cause damage to buildings, cars, and homes, leading to the necessity of filing insurance claims. We can help you with step-by-step instruction in filing your claim and advocate for you should your insurer resort to tactics to avoid paying you what your claim is really worth.
Unfortunately, insurance companies are well-known for being large corporations with myriad departments and legal staff whose sole aim is to pay out as little as possible to keep their company’s profitability high. This often is manifested in the legalese of your policy, making it difficult to understand, the overwhelming paperwork required to process your claim, and the attempts made to undervalue your claim or deny it outright. Because of this, most property owners are no match for fighting insurers on their own. That is why it is important to rely on a law firm that understands the insurance system and how to overcome the obstacles.
