Fire Damage Claims: When a Lawyer is Necessary (Part B)

Free Case Evaluation

How should I choose a South Florida fire damage lawyer? 

When selecting a South Florida fire damage lawyer, you should choose an attorney who seems persuasive and aggressive. Your attorney should demonstrate that they can formulate convincing arguments as well as possessing the ability to “stick to their guns.” 

When interviewing a South Florida fire damage lawyer, you should ask questions such as: 

  • How many years have you been in practice?
  • How long have you represented South Florida fire damage claims?
  • Do you have experience taking similar cases to trial? If so, how many of your cases did you win?
  • How much will your representation cost me?
  • Do you see any challenges in my case? 

If an attorney promises a particular outcome in your fire damage claim, it may be best to consider hiring another attorney altogether. The outcome of an insurance claim is never guaranteed, therefore, an attorney should not promise you anything. Instead, they should suggest ways to get you the compensation you deserve. 

Also, when interviewing a South Florida fire damage lawyer, you should ask them who from their legal team is going to represent you. If you don’t ask this question, your case may be passed on to the most inexperienced lawyer at the firm. 

How can an attorney benefit me more than a public adjuster? 

A public adjuster can estimate the value of your claim. A public adjuster can also negotiate a settlement with your homeowners insurance provider. However, if you have a problem with your fire damage claim, and you need to take legal action, a public adjuster cannot help you, and you may still need to hire a South Florida fire damage lawyer.
