The Importance of Hiring an Insurance Attorney

It is all too common to believe that filing an insurance claim automatically gets you the fair compensation you deserve. In fact, like all businesses, insurance companies do not wait to spend more than they have to spend for any claim, large or relatively small. The moment you agree to an insurance claim settlement, your claim is closed. If you seek the advice from insurance lawyer in Boca Raton or Fort Lauderdale before agreeing, you may learn that your claim is worth more than the settlement. With the attorney’s assistance, you may be able to collect for more. In fact, your insurance lawyer in Fort Lauderdale or Boca Raton might be able to avoid a court case by negotiating directly with the insurance company.

What an experienced insurance attorney can do

Insurance attorneys in Boca Raton and Fort Lauderdale know Florida’s specific insurance laws to provide the legal support you need. They can help in many ways, including the following:

  • Discuss and advise on your case: Insurance attorneys in Fort Lauderdale and Boca Raton can listen to the details of your case and can tell you if the settlement offered by the insurance company is fair. Even if you want to handle the case yourself, getting legal advice will ensure that you know your rights.
  • Negotiate with the insurance company: Your attorney in Fort Lauderdale and Boca Raton will have a strong understanding of all laws. This will enable your attorney to negotiate from a position of power, potentially resolving the case without the need for a lawsuit.
  • Represent your interests in court: If a court case is needed to get you the compensation you deserve, your insurance attorney will defend your rights in court.

Finding the right insurance attorney

The key to finding the right insurance attorneys in Boca Raton or Fort Lauderdale is to find a firm with prior experience working for the other side.
