Sinkholes are an unfortunate part of Florida's geology and
a fact of life for Florida property owners. Having a sinkhole on
your property can be a devastating experience, and dealing with the insurance company adds an
even greater burden.
Insurance companies have teams of adjusters and lawyers who work to minimize the amounts
paid out on claims. If the insurance company finds you have a sinkhole, they usually
obtain bids from several repair companies and then pay the property owner the lowest
estimate from the lowest bidder. Property owners, on their own, are rarely paid enough
to effect structurally sound repairs.
Marshall Thomas, P.L. will hire experts on behalf of the property owner to determine the
proper and structurally necessary method of repair and will also determine the cost to make
such repairs. We have the resources and ability to maximize our clients' recoveries and
refuse to settle for insufficient repairs made by the lowest bidder.
Marshall Thomas, P.L. helps property owners with all aspects of their sinkhole claims,
including situations where:
You have not yet filed a claim with your insurance company;
You have filed a claim and the insurance company has denied it for any reason;
You have filed a claim but the insurance company will not pay enough money to make proper and/or recommended repairs
