WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT INSURANCE CLAIM MEDIATION
When you're faced with a property insurance claim dispute, you deserve fair compensation for your losses without the hassle and stress that insurance companies create. At Murray Law Group, we understand the challenges policyholders face during insurance claim disputes. We are dedicated to providing our clients with the knowledge and support they need to navigate the complex world of insurance claims and the mediation process.
Filing an insurance claim can be a complicated endeavor. Even in the best scenarios, disagreements between policyholders and insurers can arise regarding the final resolution of a claim. While litigation and arbitration can be employed in these situations, mediation has emerged as a popular and cost-effective method for resolving insurance coverage disputes. Every policyholder should be aware of the benefits and drawbacks of mediation as a means to address claim disagreements.
WHAT IS INSURANCE CLAIM MEDIATION?
Insurance Claim Mediation is a voluntary and confidential process in which a neutral third party, called a mediator, facilitates negotiation and communication between disputing parties to help them reach a mutually agreeable resolution. Unlike arbitration, mediation is non-binding and the mediator does not make a final decision on the case. The parties retain control over the outcome and can choose to accept or reject the proposed resolution.
WHY CHOOSE MEDIATION FOR INSURANCE CLAIM DISPUTES?
There are several key reasons why mediation is often a preferred method for resolving insurance claim disputes:
- Cost: Mediation is typically less expensive than both litigation and arbitration.
- Time: The mediation process is often faster than litigation and can resolve disputes in a matter of weeks or months instead of years.
- Voluntary: Mediation is a voluntary process where both parties can work together to find a mutually satisfying solution to their dispute.
- Confidential: Mediation proceedings are confidential, protecting the privacy of the parties involved and allowing for the possibility of a more flexible and creative resolution.
- Control: The parties retain control over the outcome of their dispute, ensuring that any agreement reached is acceptable to both sides.
WHY IS IT IMPORTANT TO HAVE AN ATTORNEY REPRESENT YOU IN THE MEDIATION PROCESS?

A knowledgeable insurance claim attorney can help you:
- Understand your rights and your insurance policy provisions.

INSURANCE CLAIM MEDIATION FAQS
Despite accepting premiums and issuing policies, it is not uncommon for insurance companies in Florida to deny coverage for claims. There are different reasons an insurance company may give for denying your claim, some may be valid while others are not. An insurance company may be engaging in bad faith insurance practices when denying valid claims — especially if they are denying claims in an effort to increase profits to the detriment of their policyholders.
Below is a list of reasons your insurance company may give you for denying your claim:
- The claim was not filed timely
- Lack of property insurance levels
- Insufficient evidence to support payments
- Lack of documentation provided
- Policy exclusions limit coverage
- Unpaid policy premiums
Although you may not have the ability to stop an insurance company from denying your claim outright, you can take steps to minimize the chances of a claim denial if you do the following:
- File a claim right after the incident
- Request a copy of your policy
- Comply with the duties after loss section of the policy
- Provide the documents and records requested
- Take steps to protect the property and mitigate damage
- Pay your premiums on time
- Keep records of all repair costs and expenses incurred
- Know what your policy covers and excludes
- Engage professionals to represent your interests
Several factors are essential in selecting an insurance claim attorney. When choosing an attorney, hire someone who has experience and a good reputation in the legal community. Read online reviews to see what other clients are saying about the attorney’s services. Consider the experience and expertise of the attorney handling the claim and how many trials and/or arbitrations the attorney has handled. All these factors are crucial. Choose an attorney only after careful consideration and after speaking with the actual attorney who will be assisting you.
