Fire Damage Insurance Claims

A fire in your home or business can destroy a lifetime of memories or years of hard work in just minutes. As tragic as this loss is, you trust that your insurance coverage will help you to rebuild. Imagine now what it would feel like to receive a notice denying your valid claim for fire damage and potentially even accusing you of being responsible for the fire. This is one tactic our Miami fire damage claims attorneys have witnessed insurance companies use to deny a legitimate claim.

At Greenberg Stone & Urbano, we represent home and business owners whose valid fire damage claims have been denied, undervalued or delayed. We have successfully brought actions against the most powerful insurance companies in the region. Whether your insurance company has outright denied your claim or did not pay the right amount, we can help.

Our Insurance Dispute Attorneys Can Help You Following A Fire

Following the initial filing of your claim, the insurance company will launch a full investigation to determine the cause of the fire, the extent of the damage and your claim's value. Insurance companies are notorious for blaming homeowners for the fire or related damage and may attempt to hire investigators that will justify this blame.

Our insurance dispute attorneys at Greenberg Stone & Urbano will mount strong evidence to be used in negotiations, appeals and settlements with the insurance company. Our firm has the resources you need to obtain special investigators and more to substantiate your claim. With our assistance, you can fight any denial or undervaluing of your claim to recover the full amount you are owed.

You Can Still Recover Following An Initial Denial

The insurance company is a for-profit company that has an incentive to deny your claim as it is in the best interests of the company. However, insurance companies cannot deny your claim unlawfully. Florida policyholders are protected from wrongful or deceitful actions by the insurance company under the Unfair Claim Settlement Practices Act (UCSPA). Potential instances of unfair claims handling include:

  • Failure to investigate in a timely manner
  • Undervaluing a claim
  • Unreasonable interpretation of policy language
  • Unsubstantiated allegations of arson
  • Unreasonable delay in making payments or processing the claim
  • Denying a claim without valid reason

If you believe the insurance company has wrongfully denied your claim or undervalued your valid action, the insurance dispute attorneys at Greenberg Stone & Urbano are here to help. Contact our office as soon as possible to protect your legal rights.
