Miscommunication or misunderstandings can result in litigation related to insurance coverage disputes between insurers and insured individuals or organizations. The following are two of the main types we deal with:
- Corporate coverage disputes. Employers who provide insurance to their workers must meet certain standards and benchmarks. They must also fulfill their obligations for providing workers’ compensation benefits to employees injured while on the job.
- Property insurance disputes. When an injury occurs on the property of a business or individual, the liable parties often assume that their property insurance will cover the costs of providing compensation. That is not always the case and coverage disputes and litigation can arise.
Bad faith claims
If an insurance company denies a claim, the policyholder may accuse the company of acting in “bad faith.” To be considered bad faith, the insurer must have engaged in deceptive practices to avoid paying a claim, used improper standards in analyzing a claim or deliberately misrepresented records. Many denied claims result in bad faith litigation between the two parties.
Property insurance disputes are common in Florida, in both residential and commercial settings. Whether the damage is from storms, burst pipes or vandalism, insurance companies may be hesitant to pay out large sums of money to pay for repairs or replace damaged or stolen items. If a property insurance claim gets denied, litigation is often the next step as business owners and homeowners aim to secure compensation for the damage done to their properties.
