Did you know that in Florida, some of the most common causes of property damage are roof leaks, water intrusion, electrical failures, fires, and hurricanes? No matter the age or condition of your home, issues will always arise. If you let these issues remain, they will certainly get worse. Damage as a result of failure to resolve issues will sometimes result in an underpayment of insurance benefits. You pay your insurance premiums, why shouldn’t you get the maximum benefits? The insurance company knows or thinks that your claims experience is most likely limited. This usually results in a low-ball offer or an undervalued claim. Having Ian Bressler Law on your side will make a tremendous difference in how the insurance company approaches valuation and settlement.
WHAT DOES THIS COST ME?
In Florida, the legislature enacted a law that requires the prevailing party in a homeowner’s insurance lawsuit to pay the other sides attorney’s fees. Because most cases settle, the insurance company will also settle the attorney’s fee directly with our firm. This means that you pay our firm nothing up front and nothing from the settlement! The insurance company pays our fees and costs.
I ALREADY HAVE A PUBLIC ADJUSTER, DO I STILL NEED A LAWYER?
Even if you have a public adjuster, hiring a lawyer will typically result in more money for you. Because our fee does not come from the settlement funds, we are able to put more pressure on the insurance company to come up with more money to settle your case.
CAN I USE MY OWN CONTRACTOR?
You can use any contractor, builder, or repair person that you want to. If you do not know who to use, we would be happy to provide referrals to competent contractors who will get the job done and who will agree to wait until the case resolves to accept payment.
