Insurance Claim Lawyer That You Can Rely On


Bennett Legal serves property owners across the state and guides them during what can be a harrowing claim process and, if necessary, through litigation to resolution. Many property owners have relied upon the Firm's battle-tested approach to obtain wrongfully withheld benefits under their property insurance policies, caused by claim denial and claim underpayment by their insurance company.

Attorney Bennett has recovered millions of unpaid policy proceeds for property owners from Tallahassee to Miami and has assembled a staff of claims professionals uniquely suited to break through the walls to coverage and payment erected by the insurance companies. With each unique claim, Bennett Legal strives to bring the depth and breadth of its experience to bear on the insurance company.

If your claim has been denied or you are unable to obtain full payment for a covered loss, there is no reason to struggle and fight your battle alone. Bennett Legal is ready to stand shoulder to shoulder with you and take on the insurance company.

As an insurance dispute lawyer in the greater Bradenton, Lakewood Ranch & Sarasota area, Bennett Legal is an integral part in correcting the imbalance between big insurance companies and property owners.

Florida Statute s. 627.428 and s. 57.041 requires that insurance companies pay your attorney's legal fees and costs when they obtain a judgment or decree in your favor against the insurance company.
