I recently obtained a car from a dealer in Miami Florida everything worked out and I got a loan approval from chase auto financing. It included GAP as per the dealer Chase wouldn’t provide me a loan without it. So that was on 1/2/23 of the year. I only drove the car for about a month or so and on... View More
You can file a lawsuit for breach of contract or for declaratory relief against both Progressive and Dealer Protection Loyalty. I'd sue both because the GAP company may be right and Progressive may have undervalued what it should have paid.

A Florida attorney could advise best, as insurance practices are largely governed by state law. However, your question remains open for four weeks. At this point, one option is to reach out to attorneys. In addition to your own searches, you could look into the resources of state or local bar...View More

My insurance adjuster called me today asking me really detailed questions that I’ve already answered before and asking me things he should’ve been asking a mechanic.

There are good and bad insurance companies, and the bad ones routinely deny valid claims and/or are extremely stingy because they figure their resulting higher profits will outweigh the losses caused by lawsuits. When an insurance company has no rational basis for its denial or stingy offer,...View More

Only a Florida attorney could advise as to the limitation you mention, as it could involve state-specific law. But your question remains open for four weeks. As to the other more general legal issue you raise about warranting punitive damages, that is often up to the discretion of the court in many...View More
He has to go through his employer to fix it. He has but his employer isn’t doing anything but his employer says he is. Is there anything legally I can do to get his name fixed so we can get the insurance that he’s paying for since march?
It seems odd that a mere spelling error on the insurance paperwork should prevent you from getting medical care for your child. If the child needs medical attention, ask the medical provider to contact the insurer and get the care pre-approved.
I started a multiple root canal and crowns with my insurance last year in December, the max time to finish the procedure safely was 21 day, it took 114 days for them to provide a dentist that was in network and had not dropped them. I find this excessive and unreasonable, because the failure to... View More
A Florida attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for two weeks. For this type of matter, an attorney could require a dental/oral surgery professional's opinion in terms of the impact of the delays. That's why the question is difficult to answer.

Good day. Are any of the attorneys aware of any individual or class action lawsuits filed by Florida attorneys against Lincoln National Life Insurance Co. for illegally terminating life insurance policies for alleged non-payment of premiums , please? Thank you!
Sorry to hear about your problems. Sounds like you need a product liability attorney. I recommend you contact several attorneys in your area that practice this type of law, as soon as possible. Thank you for using Justia ask a lawyer.
In an insurance contractor contract it's specified that in order to exit the contract the claim owners need to pay the contractors %25 or $5,000. It is not specified which one takes precedence. Is it up to the contractor to choose which one or does it default to whichever one is less?
A rule of construction (interpretation of contractual language) is that ambiguities are resolved against the party who drafted the ambiguous language. So, assuming that the other party (an "an insurance contractor", whatever that is) drafted it, it would be whichever is less.
Insurance company stated that they are not obligated nor legally allowed to pay for insurance on the rental. When someone else hits you and their insurance is reimbursing you. It seems as though they should also pay for the insurance on the rental. Is the insurance company telling me a bs story or... View More
It would depend on the terms of the policy. If the insurance company tells you that they would charge more for a policy that covers solar panel systems, they can certainly do that. Whatever you read on the Internet was probably a general statement and not about any specific policy.
I’m in a process of real estate insurance claim and adjuster wants to have a recorded statement from me. Do I really obligated to give him a statement or I can refuse a statement?! Also, most likely I’ll hire a lawyer, if the amount offered is low. A loss mitigation company was dispatched to... View More

Could it be that the representative of the property management company was mistaken? When you went through the website you should have noticed that you were paying for insurance. If it means that much to you, you perhaps could sue the property management company even though you, in my opinion,...View More

My deceased father made his sister a successor on his life insurance and I was a minor at the time of his death. I want to know did the agent have rights to release my portion of the money to my half brother who gained guardianship of me, being that my Aunt was the successor.
Have you contacted the life insurance company? Was a guardianship opened on your behalf? If so, money was probably released into the guardianship account. I would need more information to give a proper answer.
