Policyholders are feeling the heat over climate change and its impact on their insurance claims. Stronger and more frequent natural disasters – hurricanes, fires, windstorms, tornadoes and floods – are destroying structures at record-breaking rates. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency notes how rising global average temperatures will cause more persistent and intense weather events that have disruptive impacts across many aspects of society. Loss of life, illness and the displacement of populations are among the most profound and devastating, but the financial and emotional loss due to property damage can have lasting impacts too.
With over 25 years of legal experience, Corless Law Group has assisted thousands of policyholders with their insurance claims and have maximized insured’s policy recoveries. As a leading property damage claims law firm serving Florida policyholders, we have the knowledge and passion to get you results. We know Florida property insurance laws, are well-versed in the interpretation of insurance policy language and offer extensive experience with property insurance litigation.
Having a law firm with outstanding service, representation and results in all aspects of property claims is more important than ever due to the climate crisis. Insurers are mitigating the risk of climate change by raising home insurance premiums, especially in areas highly susceptible to storms, such as Florida. As climate change threatens the Sunshine State with more natural disasters, it’s becoming increasingly costly for Floridians to insure their homes and get compensation when a disaster strikes.
In the event of a major storm, most people would expect their insurance company to be by their side, ready to assist when their home or business is damaged in a natural disaster. When you buy property insurance, you hope that if you lose your home or deal with extensive damage, your insurance policy would be assessed and you recover your losses. Unfortunately, the insurance companies usually have one thing in mind, which is profitability. Far too often, insurers don’t compensate policyholders for valid claims, especially in the era of climate change.
Due to global warming, insurance companies look more often to delay, deny or underpay legitimate claims since they need to cover more losses. Our full-service property insurance litigation law firm is committed to helping policyholders receive fair and just coverage from their insurers. Whether you have a complex claim or your insurer has engaged in bad faith insurance practices and you need to take legal action, we are here to help.
In Florida, there are specific laws that govern how an insurance company needs to handle your damage claim. An insurer cannot act in bad faith (e.g., unreasonably delay a claim, fail to respond to claims, underpay valid claims, perform inadequate investigations). If they fail at this simple task, they will be hit with hefty punitive damages.
Our property insurance law firm is based in Tampa, Florida and has won record-setting verdicts throughout the Sunshine State. We have developed unique legal strategies for each of our clients (residential and commercial policyholders) when their insurance company has delayed, undervalued or denied their valid claim by producing solution-driven results.
