Hurricane Michael Insurance Claim for Commercial Building in Florida

Our client filed a commercial insurance claim for their building after it sustained significant damages from Hurricane Michael. Initially, our client’s insurance company only offered $94 for their commercial insurance claim. Their initial position was that most of the damage was caused by wear and tear, and not covered by the insurance policy. Unsurprisingly, our client was not pleased with this response and chose to talk to Jason Herman. Our team of expert insurance dispute lawyers reviewed the details of the client’s Hurricane Michael claim and was shocked at what this insurance company was trying to get away with. Jason and Warren Duffy ended up taking this case to trial against the insurance company and were successful in advocating for our client. The jury ended up awarding $717,523.94, on a Replacement Cost Basis for this Hurricane Michael insurance claim. The client could not have been happier as our insurance dispute lawyers were awarded exactly what they were seeking for our client in this impressive verdict.

Initial Position

Underpaid Claim

Our client was injured in a car crash caused by a driver with only a small amount of insurance.  Our client needed surgery to her neck, but the other driver’s insurance company refused to settle for its policy limit.  We argued that the insurance company had acted in bad faith and should pay more than the policy limit.  After going to trial for our client, we reached a settlement of $500,000.
