Florida Underpayment Of Claims Lawyers
Many people think that when they submit claims, the insurance companies will give them the compensation that they need. However, when the insurance company does evaluate the claim, they will often say that the damages are less than what they actually are. This is especially true if the claims involve property damage. They may even send you a check and hope that you cash the check as soon as possible. In many cases, the check is much less than the damages.
Insurance companies often take advantage of people in this regard because of their inability to assess damages. They know that people are desperate and need the money as soon as possible. Insurance companies also know that many people do not want to pursue the claim any further.
Underpayment typically occurs because the policy holder does not understand their coverage. They may also not understand that they give up rights when they cash the check. Do not cash a check unless you have spoken to an experienced attorney first. You will be giving up certain rights if you cash the check and do not speak to a lawyer. A settlement check typically requires the total release of the insurance company. It could also be deemed a final and full settlement.
The insurance adjuster may be friendly. However, it is important to remember that this person is still employed by the insurance company. The insurance company may not have your best interests in mind. They may simply be in the interest of making money and not giving people the compensation that they are entitled to.
