Becker & Poliakoff

Property Insurance Claims

After your property is damaged by a hurricane or other disaster, you naturally expect your insurance company to quickly investigate your claim and fairly pay your loss. Unfortunately, many policy holders have learned that insurance companies often undervalue, delay, or deny payment. We have represented policy holders in a wide range of insurance disputes including coverage disputes and bad faith claims. Becker attorneys have significant experience assisting Florida property owners in their fight with their insurance carrier and have successfully resolved hundreds of claims totaling millions of dollars.

Becker will help you maximize your recovery.
