Theft and Vandalism Insurance Claims

Theft and Vandalism Claims

The Orlando based Woodward Law Firm assists auto owners, homeowners, businesses and business proprietors to recover benefits on theft and vandalism claims in Central Florida and throughout the State of Florida.


If you are a victim of theft or vandalism, then you should immediately call the police, contact the insurance company, and begin preparing an inventory of the stolen or damaged property.  Once you have a comprehensive list of all of the stolen or damage property, then you should contact the investigating officer or detective and supplement the police report.  Not only will the police report confirm that you were the victim of a crime but its inventory of every item stolen or damaged will also be the basis for your claim.  The insurance company will carefully examine the items on the police report and compare them to the items listed in your claim.  Details of the stolen items will usually be distributed by the police department to local consignment stores and pawn shops as well.


Proving your ownership and the value of the damaged or stolen property is a difficult step in the claim process, but it is necessary for a successful result with the insurance company.  Ideally, ownership and value are established by providing documents such as receipts, appraisals, bills of sale, certificates of title or other similar proofs of purchase.  An experienced theft and vandalism insurance claim lawyer can help prove your ownership of the property and establish the reasonable value, even if you do not have receipts or similar documents.  Often times, the insurance company will attempt to minimize your claim by obtaining appraisals from companies that can manipulate the replacement price of items by purchasing at significant volume.  Orlando lawyer, Hew Woodward, knows how to challenge the insurance company’s valuation and prove a theft and vandalism insurance claim.  The Woodward Law Firm has helped policyholders in Central Florida obtain full and fair payment on theft and vandalism insurance claims.

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.

Mr. Woodward took charge of our claim and we didn’t have to lift a finger. Hew personally handled everything for us and we did not have to deal with anyone at the insurance company. For the record, Hew got the claim settled and we got our home fixed. We feel personally grateful for his representation, and will not hesitate to recommend him to anyone who has a similar insurance claim issue. Thanks again!

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.
