Auto Insurance Dispute & Denied Claim Attorneys
Drivers have legal rights when dealing with insurance companies. Under the law, you are entitled to every penny an insurance company owes you on a claim you file. Yet, it is common for a motorist who is in dispute with an insurance company over a claim to need to bring in an automobile insurance claims attorney to negotiate or begin litigation against the company to resolve the matter.
The legal system is set up to protect the rights of drivers and riders after a car or motorcycle accident. But the maneuvers that insurance companies can pull to avoid paying out claims can make it necessary for lawyers to step in and fight for justice on behalf of policyholders. As insurance dispute lawyers know all too well, drivers file thousands of claims every year for accident damage, theft, fires, and burglaries to their vehicles, yet insurance companies refuse to pay for legitimate claims. Worse still, a claim that is rejected can lead to more serious financial hardships for the driver when the insurance company raises premiums as a result of the accident.
When a dispute arises over a claim you filed with an insurance provider after a car accident or another incident, obtaining legal representation is the wise route to follow. And at the Law Offices of Michael B. Brehne, P.A., we have a team of attorneys who know their way around insurance law and are ready to fight for you to receive the money owed to you by the insurance company.
Litigating A Claim Dispute
Florida law requires all drivers to carry a minimum amount of personal injury protection (PIP) and property damage liability (PDL). To balance out the power of insurance companies, Florida also has laws in place to protect the rights of individual policyholders. Insurance lawyers know the rules that a car insurance company must follow. So, if you disagree with the response to a claim filed with your provider, an insurance attorney can determine whether there is a basis to dispute the claim.
- Bad Faith: A bad-faith lawsuit is based on the idea that an insurance company deliberately or unintentionally came short of meeting its requirements. Bad faith can manifest as misrepresentation of coverage plans and benefits, unnecessary delays in processing a claim, or an action to inhibit the legal rights of the policyholder.
- Breach of Contract: In a breach-of-contract lawsuit, the courts determine whether the insurance company failed to satisfy its obligations under the terms of the policy. The language of the law typically favors the interests of the policyholder in disputes regarding a breach of contract.
