Lakeland Insurance Dispute Attorneys
Insurance company advertising often suggests that they are "on your side" and best interest in mind when a claim arises. Unfortunately, adjustors and investigators work for and owe their loyalty to the insurance companies that pay their yearly salaries and incentive bonuses. Typically, their goal is to increase company profits by selling as much insurance coverage as possible and paying out as little as possible when a claim arises.
At the Fernandez Firm, our Lakeland insurance dispute attorneys have devoted more than 20 years to standing up for the rights of people like you whose insurance claims have been unfairly denied, unreasonably delayed, or inadequately paid. When insurance companies do not work on your behalf, our experienced attorneys will fight to protect you. If you have question about your rights under your insurance policy, contact our Lakeland office today or complete our free on-line case evaluation form.
Making Insurance Companies Act in Good Faith
Florida laws require insurance companies to act in good faith in their dealings with the people to whom they issue policies or who have a valid claim. When they breach their duty to act in good faith, you may have a right to sue them for damages that could include punitive damages. Our insurance dispute attorneys know that bad faith claims can arise from various types of insurance company activities, including:
- Failure to undertake prompt and thorough investigation of a claim
- Unreasonable denial of claims
- Delaying payment of claims
- Failing to negotiate settlements in good faith
- Failing to comply with the specific terms of an insurance policy
The Fernandez Firm attorneys know that you and your family depend upon the money you receive from an insurance claim to help you to recover from the injuries or property damage suffered in an accident, natural disaster or other mishap. We are your dedicated advocates fighting against an insurance company to force it to act in good faith regarding your claim or rights under an insurance policy.
