Underpaid Fire Loss
Our client’s home was burned in an accidental fire. The insurance company delayed paying and, when it finally paid, didn’t pay enough to replace the home. We fought for additional living expense, building coverage, lost rental income, and other available coverage. After going through an appraisal and then filing a lawsuit, we were able to recover over $450,000 from the insurance company.
Pedestrian Hit In Crosswalk
Our client was crossing a street at a crosswalk when she was hit by a truck. She broke her arm in the accident and required surgery. We sued the driver and took her case to trial, ultimately recovering a total of $425,000.
Denied Medical Claim After Rear End
Our client was in a pickup truck with her family which was hit from behind. The insurance carrier argued that the damage to her truck was not enough to cause her medical treatment so it must have been pre-existing, but we were eventually able to resolve the claim. This money will help her recovery from everything she has been through as well as the treatment that she needs.
Denied Medical Claim
Injury From Slipping Off Roof
Our client fell off a slippery roof when he was told it was safe to go up to hang lights. We were able to reach a settlement for him.
Shifflet v. Citizens Insurance
Citizens denied our client’s claim, saying that it didn’t have to pay because the damage was caused by decaying organic soil. We filed suit and, after a week-long jury trial, the jury found for our client.
Underpaid Commercial Insurance Claim
Hurricane winds damaged our client’s apartment complex, causing roof damage and interior water damage. The insurance company paid $100,000, which was not enough money to cover the cost of repairs. We filed a lawsuit against the insurance company and recovered an additional $228,000 for our client, bringing the total payment up to $328,000. This allowed our client to fully repair the storm damage.
Delayed and Underpaid Homeowners Claim
A family’s home near Lakeland, Florida was damaged by a hurricane. Water came into the house from the roof. The insurance company sent its own contractor to dry it out, but didn’t complete the job. The adjuster also wrote an estimate to repair the inside of the house, but the insurance company made the adjuster delete some of the repairs from his estimate. At the end of the day, the insurance company only paid the family $1,900 for their damage. After we were hired to help the family fight back against the insurance company, the family was able to recover an additional $220,000 from the insurance company to settle the case.
Loran Hines v. State Farm
Our client was injured in a car crash. Her insurance argued that she was not injured. The jury returned a verdict of $201,272.63 less 30% for comparative fault.
Car Accident Injury
Denied Life Insurance Claim
After losing her husband, our client made a life insurance claim. The insurance company tried not to pay. We proved to the insurance company that it could not deny the claim, resulting in a full payment of the policy limits, plus interest.
Slip & Fall Injury in St. Petersburg Parking Lot
Our client was significantly injured while traversing a parking lot in St. Petersburg, FL. This parking lot is located on 4th Street and had been recently resurfaced by the commercial property owner at the time of the incident. After the resurfacing had been completed, they negligently left a severely uneven surface right in the area where pedestrians would step down from the sidewalk. The incident occurred at night and with 2 parked cars flanking this uneven surface area. The low visibility was only exacerbated by the dark shadows from the cars and this prevented our client from seeing what they were stepping onto. Our client fell down and broke her leg as a result. Fortunately, our personal injury attorney successfully recovered $192,500.00 for them.
