That kind of belief comes about because dealing directly with an insurance company on a claim can often be frustrating and nonproductive. Florida has a special statute that provides that when an insurance company fails to pay a valid claim on behalf of one of its insureds that the insured has the right to hire a lawyer who is paid a court awarded fee against the insurance company. This is true regardless of what kind of insurance claim is involved. If a life insurance company refuses to pay an claim within 60 days of the time a death occurs, the beneficiary under the policy is entitled to hire a lawyer and the insurance company is responsible for that lawyer's attorney fees. Insurance Claims against insurance companies can arise in a variety of circumstances in addition to life insurance claims. People insure themselves to protect against significant medical bills, disability, and for a variety of other reasons. The law provides that an insurance company, under those circumstances, has a contractual liability to pay valid claims. Insurance policies are supposed to be written to protect insureds and not the insurance companies. Therefore, the law provides that every insurance policy, because it is written by the insurance company and not by the insured, is interpreted to protect the insured whenever possible. When an insurance company tries to wiggle out of its responsibility to its insured, the law is designed to protect the insured when a dispute arises. It is important that the lawyer who is hired to represent an insured against an insurance company be familiar with insurance law and litigation in general.

Welcome to the insurance game of no-fault where everyone gets paid for their injuries, even if no one got hurt. No-fault, which is tucked away in many auto insurance policies under the innocuous title of PIP (personal injury protection), is a good idea that many people, including most of the Florida legislature, think has gone terribly wrong. After trying in 2012 to cut the no-fault rate crime rate, which went down slightly before rebounding, the state is gearing up again this year for another attempt with two competing measures that would ultimately abandon this system. No-fault has been around since the 1970s, and it once served a very valuable purpose. Under the at-fault, or tort system, in place in a majority of U.S. jurisdictions, the cause of an accident has to be decided by insurance claims adjusters, lawyers or, worst case, a court of law. In the meantime, those injured in the accident could wait and suffer. You could end up limping for the rest of your life, said Lynne McChristian, who teaches about insurance at Florida State University. No-fault provides a cash cushion allowing victims of a car crash to seek medical help immediately under their own policy. The insurer pays for this treatment up to the amount listed in that PIP box. Scam artists have found a way to milk this cash cow with swoop and squat car crashes like the one described above.
