Ted Babbitt, Florida personal injury lawyer, wrote an article for the Palm Beach Post about understanding insurance claims.
He discusses Florida’s statute that protects insureds against insurance companies:
“Florida has a special statute that provides that when an insurance company fails to pay a valid claim on behalf of one of its insureds that the insured has the right to hire a lawyer who is paid a court awarded fee against the insurance company.”
“When an insurance company tries to wiggle out of its responsibility to its insured, the law is designed to protect the insured when a dispute arises.”
