Denial of Sinkhole Claims

Denial of a Tampa Sinkhole Claim

Tampa Sinkhole Attorney

Florida law explicitly requires that all insurance companies who issue property and homeowners policies in the state must provide coverage for any damage caused by sinkholes and the activity surrounding their development. Unfortunately, insurers will not always act in your best interest, many times deferring to what is much more important to their own bottom line - profit. Their business model is to collect the highest possible premiums and to pay out the lowest possible claims. This behavior can leave you in an untenable position after you have experienced sinkhole damage on your property. A Tampa sinkhole lawyer can offer strong legal advocacy if you are getting the "run around" from your insurance company.

In most cases, damage claims surrounding sinkhole activity are related to the underground development of this natural geologic occurrence. Telltale signs such as cracks in walls, flooring or foundation, sagging trees, pooling water, soft or depressed spots in your yard or the beginning of a cavity in the ground all point to sinkhole damage. After you contact your insurer, an expert will be sent out to evaluate your damage. If disputes and disagreements arise as to the proper and full compensation amount or the flat-out denial of your claim - and this is likely when profit, not customer care, is the motive - you can receive valuable assistance from your attorney on seeking a fair settlement and quality repairs.
