First Party Property Disputes
Insurance policies are meant to protect the assets that are most important to you and your family. Since insurance policies are expected to safeguard your property and possessions from damages, accidents, liabilities, and other incidents, we trust them to honor and fulfill their part of the deal. Unfortunately, sometimes insurance carriers do not meet their end of the bargain. They have been known to do the following:
- Delay compensation for no legitimate reason
- Deny compensation for no legitimate reason
- Purposely fail to acknowledge a claim
- Fail to reply to a claim
- Fail to provide an explanation for a denied claim
- Fail to provide an explanation for an underpaid claim
- Fail to provide a proper claims investigation
- Try to settle a claim for an unreasonable amount

Reimbursement For The Actual Value Of My Property Prior to Damage
When your property is damaged, you expect your insurance company to provide compensation that reflects the actual value of your property before the incident occurred. However, insurance carriers often fall short of meeting their obligations, leading to frustrating experiences for policyholders. At Payne Law, PLLC, we understand the challenges you may face in obtaining fair reimbursement for your property.
Our experienced property claims lawyers have dealt with various scenarios, including insurance carriers delaying or denying compensation without legitimate reasons. We can assist you if your insurance company:
- Fails to acknowledge or reply to your claim promptly
- Provides insufficient explanations for denied or underpaid claims
- Attempts to settle for an unreasonable amount
- Neglects proper claims investigation
We also address common concerns that property owners in Florida may have, such as the types of claims frequently filed and the potential damages sought in a first-party insurance claim dispute.
