What are my options if my Florida life insurance claim is denied or delayed?

Millions of dollars in Florida life insurance claims go unpaid every year as a result of improper denials of claims. When a claim is made for life insurance benefits in Florida, one of the first things the life insurance company typically does is look for a reason not to pay. This is a horrible way to treat policy owners and their beneficiaries who have been paying premiums for benefits often for decades.

MIAMI, FL (September 2, 2016) – Miami-Dade Police confirmed this past week that an 8-year-old girl died two days after being shot in the head during a drive-by shooting outside a northwest Miami-Dade home. According to news reports, the young girl was shot when two men pulled up in a black Ford sedan and started shooting.

No arrests have been made. Detectives are looking for the two men seen driving the getaway car. This happened in an area known for crime. crimescene

Homeowners and communities may have a responsibility to protect their residents and guests from crime which is foreseeable or preventable. Unless we hold these people responsible, crime may continue to put our kids and neighbors at risk of death or serious bodily injury.

Disney World may be one of the happiest places on Earth. Disney generally takes good care of their property and rides, but sometimes people get hurt while in Disney World or at one of Disney’s resorts. Over the years, we’ve handled many claims of personal injury by tourists injured in Disney World. disney world - Copy

Personal injury claims are actually fairly common against Disney. Disney even has its own claims department to help settle claims when Disney caused or contributed to the injury. So, what can you do when you get hurt on Disney property and Disney may be responsible?

Reporting the Claim

A recent report revealed that life insurance companies may owe billions of dollars in unclaimed life insurance benefits. NBC even reported that 1 in 600 people may be owed life insurance money. If you were contacted by a life insurance company recently about a life insurance policy and have questions, please feel free to contact my office for a free consultation at 800-337-7755.

Florida unclaimed funds

Unclaimed life insurance benefits may have been turned over to the State of Florida. Check the Florida unclaimed funds website to see if you may have unclaimed money. If so, we can help collect the money. Often, an estate needs to be opened to get the state to release the money. Our Probate department can help with that process.

Nearly every day in the news we hear about someone getting shot and killed in an apartment complex in Florida. Even more heartbreaking, is when the killer is never found, leaving the family seemingly without any means of pursuing justice for their loved one’s death.

So what could a family do if their loved one is shot to death in an apartment complex?Police Line

Remember that there may be two separate cases: the criminal case and the civil case. Most often, families focus on the criminal investigation. It is usually a frustrating process because the police are seeking to arrest a criminal for committing a crime against the state of Florida. They are not necessarily concerned about the rights of the victim. A victim in a criminal case is often looked at as a witness as opposed to an actual party to the case. If the police have no leads, they may not aggressively pursue the case at all. That may leave the family feeling helpless as if there are no other options. But there are.
