Assignment of Benefit should not prevent you from getting your home repaired

 

Assigning your insurance benefits to a third party is not the unscrupulous practice that the insurance industry or the commissioner claims it is. Accusations have been made that AOB abuse is raising premiums and that unprincipled contractors have left homeowners with unfinished repairs, liens against their homes and uncovered repair expenses.

 

At Acle Law, we would encourage you to use the same common sense and research you apply when choosing a car mechanic, a primary care physician or any other vital service. Make sure the business is licensed, reputable and get references before ever engaging with them.

 

The reality is that insurance companies repeatedly offer less than what is fair and just compensation for the loss and damages you suffered and what it takes a company to clean up and repair the damage that has been done.

 

When your insurance carrier’s adjuster offers less than a fair settlement, know that Acle Law can help recover what is owed. We’re a leading boutique property insurance law firm located in Miami that services all of Florida. Our attorney’s fees and most of the costs will be paid by the insurance company and in the case of and AOB claim, the contractor that did the work.

 

In the end, it’s important that you closely read your insurance policy to better understand what your responsibilities are following a loss, but you should not feel pressure to contact your insurance company before you sign an assignment of benefits document. It’s your responsibility to do what’s best for your home in order to stabilize it and bring it back to its original condition.

 

We will walk you through the terms of your insurance policy and provide representation in any dispute in Florida where your insurer is denying, delaying or under-paying your claim.
