It is vital that you find an attorney that will fight for your rights and best interests when going up against insurance companies.
Standing up to the insurance companies can be daunting, but you deserve the very best and not the lowest possible settlement. You work hard to provide for your family and have taken measures to protect your assets, including insurance policies to ensure that you are protected in the event of an accident. When you have consistently paid your premiums, you expect your insurer to be there when you need them most. However, all too often insurance companies deny claims that they shouldn’t, which adds to the stress you and your family may be experiencing. Sometimes, an insurance company may even resort to completely ignoring you and your claim.
At Klausman Law, we handle a variety of insurance dispute cases, including:
You buy insurance to protect you. You pay your premiums and you uphold your side of the agreement with your insurance company. Your insurance company’s side of the agreement is to pay valid claims. Most people buy insurance though insurance agents. Those agents are the face of the company…until you have a claim. When you have a claim, you are now dealing with “claims adjusters.”
The goal of the claims adjuster is to pay as little as possible on a claim. If they can find a way to try and get away with paying nothing they will. Some companies claims departments appear to have a mission statement of the three D’s: “Delay, Deny, Don’t Pay.”
If you are in need of compensation and your insurance company has denied, delayed or underpaid your claim, you have the right to take legal action. Sometimes, the only way to force an insurance company to give you and your claim the attention it deserves is to hire an attorney. However, allowing your claim to go unnoticed for too long could be costly, so hiring an attorney sooner rather than later could be beneficial to your case. You deserve the best possible outcome, not the lowest settlement that the insurance company wishes to pay out. At Klausman Law, we handle absolutely every case that is put on our desk. We do not shuffle your case off to a caseworker or give it to a paralegal to handle, so you can rest assured that you will be receiving the legal expertise you deserve.
Insurance law is complicated. Glenn Klausman has represented attorneys and judges on their insurance claims. They recognized they needed someone skilled and experienced in Insurance Law. It’s been said “A client who is his own lawyer has a fool for a client.” That saying is very true with insurance claims. When the insurance company gets the first notice of a claim, if the person does not yet have an attorney the insurance company has an adjuster trained at sweet talking the claimant contact the claimant to try and convince the claimant to not hire an attorney. Why? Because the insurance company knows they can shortchange and short pay in claims settled before an attorney is involved. The adjusters are trained to pay as little as possible and to get a release as quickly as possible.
What the adjusters won’t tell you is under Florida law for some insurance claims against you own company the insurance company can be required to pay all of your attorney fees. In disputes with your own auto insurance company for No-Fault auto insurance claims, the insurance company may be required to pay all of your attorney fees. The same for homeowners insurance claims. Because we handle these cases on a ”No Recovery = No Attorney Fees or Costs” basis, if we win your claim the insurance company pays our attorney fees. If we lose, you owe no attorney fees or costs. So why would you not retain the best attorney available to pursue your claim for you? Glenn Klausman has been recognized by Super Lawyers and by Florida Trend magazine for superior recognition in insurance law.

My father and mother taught me to always treat people the way you would want them you treat you. To put yourself in the other person’s shoes to understand the way they see things. To try to do your best at everything you do. To make as many friends as you can, because you never have too many.
My first job after law school was with the Public Defender’s office in Sanford and then in Orlando. I was in court every week the five years I was an assistant Public Defender. Some of the best trial lawyers get their start as assistant Public Defenders. You learn trial skills, effective communicating, and you develop your reputation in the legal community. The downside is as you become better and better as a Public Defender, you are called upon to represent those accused of more serious and heinous crimes…
