Allen & Abaray, P.A. recognizes that many people do not have the bank account to fight the large corporate insurance companies in a law suit. In addition, the Florida legislature recognizes that fact as well so they created Florida Statute 627.428 which allows the prevailing party in an insurance dispute to recover a reasonable attorney fee. As such our firm is willing to operate on a contingent fee basis which means you pay nothing upfront or along the way. You do not pay us an attorney fee or costs unless we get you a settlement or a verdict in your favor.
Whenever possible, we prefer to get involved before a claim is denied. That usually places us in a stronger position to get results for our client. If your insurance company is delaying payment, that is a sign it may be considering denying your claim. Get legal help today.
