If you’re one of those Florida property owners whose claim has not yet been closed satisfactorily or who has not yet filed a claim, help is available. At Malik Law, we’re working overtime to help clients get compensated fairly for damages to their property from Hurricane Irma.
Insurance Claim Attorneys Can Help
Filing a claim can be difficult and time-consuming, but it’s just the starting point in dealing with your insurance companies. To try to make sure your claim is being handled, you also need to contact your company representatives often and ask for updates.
Furthermore, it’s important that you pay close attention to their explanation of the issues and respond appropriately. Whether they deny or limit payment based on deductibles, say you are not covered for specific types of damage, or give reasons why they will not cover your repair or replacement costs, you need to understand your rights and fight for what you deserve.
Most people are overwhelmed by this process, but you don’t have to be. The experienced hurricane damage attorneys at Malik Law can deal efficiently and effectively with your insurance companies. They understand the language of insurance policies, and they know how to talk so insurance companies listen.
