Liability Insurance Claims

The Orlando based Woodward Law Firm assists auto owners, homeowners, professionals, and business owners, obtain insurance benefits after a claim has been asserted or legal action has been taken against them.

Under a policy providing liability insurance, the insurance company must pay damages that you become legally obligated to pay as a result of an accident resulting from the ownership, maintenance, or use of a vehicle or property.  Liability insurance must also pay damage that you become legally obligated to pay because of your own negligent conduct, business practice or malpractice.

Liability insurance requires the insurance company to defend you from legal actions filed and claims made against you that fall within the coverage of the policy, even if the lawsuit or claim is groundless, false, or fraudulent.  Liability insurance also carries an implied covenant obligating the insurance company to act in good faith in settling claims within the policy limits.  The insurance company is required to give at least as much consideration to your interests as to its own interests. A proper investigation requires the insurance company to exhaust all factual leads and legal theories, including those that are not necessarily beneficial to its own financial interests.  Your insurance company’s failure to properly investigate claims, when coupled with a refusal to settle within the policy limits, may entitle you to recover the entire amount of a judgment against you, including any portion in excess of policy limits

Liability insurance is often the only financial protection that a homeowner, auto owner, professional, or business owner, can rely upon to defend against a lawsuit and settle the claims being asserted therein.  If you believe that your insurance company has failed to fully indemnify, settle, or pay valid claims made by others against you or your business for a covered loss, or, if your insurance company has refused to provide, at its own expense, a legal defense for you after you are sued, then don’t hesitate to contact Orlando lawyer, Hew Woodward, who can help you evaluate the claims that have been asserted and procure coverage under your liability insurance policy.

Insurance policies are complicated contracts, and liability insurance law is a highly complex and involved practice area.  If your claim is denied or if you are unsatisfied with the insurance company’s attempts to settle a claim, then you should contact The Woodward Law Firm to enforce your rights under the policy.  We can take legal action to secure defense costs and pursue a fair settlement of your insurance claim.

The initial consultation is free and you will pay no attorney fees unless we win or settle your case.  In most cases, we can make the insurance company pay all attorney fees and costs.

Dear Hew, I would like to take this opportunity to express my sincere gratitude to you for your extension of your efforts on my behalf in the litigation with American Integrity Insurance.   You went the extra mile every step of the way.  May God Bless you and your loved ones.  I am in your debt.

Kind regards, Anne.

Hello Hew!  First of all, words can’t express our gratitude. As of this moment Steven is having a ‘waiting to exhale moment’…  It just hasn’t hit him yet…  LOL…  When I walked into our home tonight, it was a totally different feeling. I haven’t had that feeling since 1/31/2013.  Thank you from the bottom of my heart. You have no idea what this means or perhaps you do. With all due respect, I feel this; innately you are an advocate.. .  That’s your M.O. That’s just how you work…. What you do…. So without further ado,  I’ve dubbed you as ‘King Midas’ because you did make our dreams possible. You touched and poof, gold.   I can’t imagine what it’s like to walk in your shoes, but you have certainly gained our respect.  Again, thank you… Sincerely, Johnnie
