Florida Insurance Law Attorney

Generally, pleasant weather, a variety of scenic landscapes, and numerous popular attractions are just a few of the reasons that thousands of people move to Florida every month. They are also why people born and raised in the Sunshine State decide to stay here.

Making sure that you have insurance for your property is an unavoidable aspect of living in Florida because of the occasional accidents and natural disasters. While consumers make regular payments under the belief that they will be covered in the event something unfortunate should happen, insurance companies frequently find ways to interpret policies such that payments can be minimized or altogether denied.

Insurance is rarely cheap. Many people often pay very costly premiums in order to maintain coverage with the reasonable expectation that they will be compensated for losses following a hurricane, a flood, or some other similar event.

When insurance companies deny these people’s claims or offer insufficient settlement amounts, too many people assume that they must begrudgingly accept the choices as the only possible outcomes. Germain Law Group, P.A. fights to make insurers honor their policies for such types of insurance as:

  • Property Insurance
  • Auto Insurance
  • Health Insurance
  • Homeowner Insurance
  • General Liability Insurance
