Whether it's health insurance, property (commercial or residential) insurance, car insurance, homeowner insurance, or life insurance claims, all of these have one thing in common: victims may be owed the maximum amount of compensation for a wrongdoing that was perpetrated against their property or their person, and the insurance companies will attempt to deny this fact.
Who is entitled to compensation from the insurance company after an accident or property damage?
When property is damaged as a result of someone else's negligence or due to natural disaster, the financial losses can be devastating for a family. Whether it's a contractor that doesn't live up to their word and causes a home to become uninhabitable and a family without shelter or the damage caused to property is sustained by a drunk driver who lost control and plowed across the lawn recklessly. In the case of southern states like Florida, property damage is often sustained after a major hurricane such as Irma or Wilma. All of these occurrences have one thing in common: policy holders have the right to file a claim and receive compensation owed to them.
Insurance companies, however, will play the game of Deny, Delay, Don't Pay.
What is Deny, Delay, Don't Pay?
The insurance companies will not make a victim's claims process easy. That's their job, and their schoolyard bully tactics will never be tolerated by an experienced lawyer; that's why it's important not to attempt to battle the insurance company alone. The game of Deny, Delay, Don't pay can go on for months or years without proper legal representation and nothing will ever be resolved. It's never in the best interest of victims who have suffered property damage to attempt to fight the insurance company alone. The end result will always remain the same: the compensation will not be paid, and the victim and their family will be left with little recourse to recoup the cost of property that was damaged by no fault of their own.

What is considered property damage?
In Florida, where the weather can be beautiful one day and disastrous the next, it's hard to predict when our family homes will sustain damage.

Aside from hurricanes, there are numerous other instances that the Shaked Law Firm has experience in in the area of property damage claims:
- Structural damage due to reckless driving
- Rusty pipes
- Home repairs that were thought to be reputable, however turned out to damage the victim's home, costing thousands of dollars in further repairs
- Roof damage
