As an insurance law attorney at Jeff Albert, P.A., I provide legal advice and representation to insurance companies, self-insured corporations, policyholders and third-party claimants throughout Florida. I have extensive experience handling insurance claims, insurance coverage issues and subrogation cases at every level of state and federal court. I am dedicated to providing the personal attention you deserve as I work diligently to produce the best possible result.
Jeff Albert, P.A. has been successful asserting the interests of insurance companies in numerous types of controversies. I provide a wide variety of legal services to insurers, including:
My practice often helps insurance companies resolve problems involving insurance policy coverage. I analyze every provision to determine the extent of coverage under the policy, and prepare detailed opinion letters. I also assist insurance companies in claims involving third parties. I often initiate subrogation claims against at-fault third parties in order to get reimbursement for any payments to insureds under their own policies. I resolve many conflicts in arbitration or mediation, saving our clients time and expense. In certain cases, state or federal court litigation may be necessary to settle disputes. When that occurs, I have the knowledge and skill to deliver the best possible results.
When you sign an insurance policy, the insurer pledges to: defend you against claims, to indemnify you for successful claims and to settle with you for your own losses. Your insurer has a duty to deal in good faith,meaning fairly and honestly. When the company fails in that duty, you may have a case of bad faith. Florida recognizes bad faith as a cause of action for a lawsuit. If successful, you can recover more than the value of your claim in punitive damages.
There is no clear definition of bad faith, but courts look for a pattern of behavior that indicates an insurance company is not dealing fairly with a policyholder. Signs of bad faith include:
Because I serve on both sides of insurance issues, I know how to handle insurance bad faith litigation. I put my experience to work, taking decisive steps to deliver a positive outcome.
