If you’re ever in a car accident in Hollywood or your southern Florida community, you may assume your car insurance company will take care of you. After all, you pay insurance premiums and may have chosen your insurance company because you felt they would be able to help you in the event of a car crash.
Unfortunately, for many people who are in a car accident in southern Florida, they find they face insurance issues in Miami or their community. There are many types of issues that may happen when you file car insurance claims after a crash. Your car insurance company may claim you aren’t covered, may offer you less money than you feel you deserve or may delay paying the amount owed. In some cases, innocent people who have been injured are even accused of faking injuries or an accident.
If you’re having any trouble with your insurance company after a car accident, contact Flaxman Law Group for a free consultation. It’s important to contact a personal injury attorney and an attorney with experience with insurance companies. An insurance attorney can review your coverage and your insurance documents to determine what should and shouldn’t be covered by your policy. He or she can also negotiate with your insurance company. Since an insurance attorney understands insurance law, he or she can ensure that your insurance carrier treats you in good faith.
Laws in Florida and across the country prevent insurance companies from failing to properly reimburse you in the event of a valid claim. If you have a valid claim and your insurance contract clearly states you should be paid, the insurance company is beholden to act in good faith and to meet their obligations under your contract together. If a company fails to do so, you may have a claim against that company.
