Pompano Beach Insurance Law
Policyholders in Florida are protected by the Unfair Claim Settlement Practices Act, which requires insurance companies to act in specific ethical and honest manners. This law also prevents insurance companies from unfairly denying claims and undervaluing claims.
Insurance disputes occur when a policyholder an insurance company cannot come to an agreement over an insurance claim. An insurance policyholder may submit a claim and the insurance company may pay out less than the insurance holder believes they are entitled to or may deny the claim entirely.
