The Woodward Law Firm assists auto owners, homeowners, business owners, and their representatives, recover benefits on insurance claims over property damage throughout Florida.  Insurance policies are complicated contracts, and property insurance law is a highly complex and involved practice area.  The Woodward Law Firm’s knowledge of the law and insurance company tactics allows you to effectively challenge the insurance company’s decision.  Whether in the courtroom or during settlement negotiations, The Woodward Law Firm will advocate for a full and fair payment on your loss.

The Woodward Law Firm can also assist auto owners, homeowners and business owners, and their representatives, obtain insurance benefits after a lawsuit has been filed against them.  Under a liability insurance policy, the insurance company must indemnify, settle, or pay valid claims made by others against you for a covered loss.  The insurance company must also provide, at its own expense, a legal defense for you after you are sued.  Liability insurance is often the only financial protection that you can rely upon to settle and defend a lawsuit, so don’t hesitate to contact The Woodward Law Firm after you have been sued.

Sometimes coverage under the insurance policy is not enough because the insurance company has refused to treat you fairly and honestly.  If your insurance company has failed to act in good faith by denying payment to you, or has unreasonably delayed in providing the coverage to which you are entitled, you may have grounds to receive financial compensation for damages caused by such conduct.  In those cases, The Woodward Law Firm will help you pursue “bad faith” and punitive damages against the insurance company.

Very Effective
I am in a business that utilizes the efforts of an attorney on a regular basis to recover insurance claim money for my clients. Hew gets great results. I wouldn't refer clients to him otherwise as my reputation is on the line based on his performance.
