Press Releases

Barakat Legal, P.A. is happy to announce it is extending its areas of practice into first-party homeowners insurance litigation. Because many Florida policyholders rarely read every word of their large and complex policies, they are usually not aware of how much coverage they really have. Most know that when a hurricane strikes, they immediately should report any damage to their carrier. However, pipe leaks, fallen objects, water damage, etc. are all incidents that insurance carriers should be acknowledging coverage for. However, more often than not, insurance companies are neglecting to fulfill their duties to pay for accidental damages sustained by the homes of their consumers. Here at Barakat Legal, we will work with you, the consumer, to ensure your denied claims or underpaid claims are litigated with the proper recovery. With our advanced litigation technology, we will work efficiently and effectively and give every client’s case the utmost importance. We have all suffered property damage and know how frustrating the restoration process can be. Let Barakat Legal fight for your right to a speedy, fully compensated loss. After all, that’s what insurance coverage is for.

Per Florida Statute 627.428, as soon as a lawsuit is filed against the insurance carrier, in the event the insured prevails, the insured is awarded reasonable attorney’s fees and costs. In other words, if Barakat Legal, P.A. does not recover any money on your case, there will be no fee. Similarly, if we do recover monies on your claim, our fees are paid directly by your carrier. It is truly a win-win situation. Here are some of the types of claims that most consumers end up paying out of their own pocket for:

  • Water damage
  • Mold damage
  • Storm damage
  • Fire damage
  • Theft/vandalism
  • Lightning
  • Fallen objects
  • Broken pipes
  • AC Leaks
  • Roof Leaks
  • Shower pan leaks
  • Floods

As insurance companies tighten their belts, they are getting to be even more particular about whom they will cover and whom they will not. You could potentially file just one claim and have your coverage suddenly terminated; indeed, you may not have to file a claim at all to have your coverage terminated. Do not miss the opportunity to get compensated for your claims out of fear that your insurance company may drop you. Keep in mind that they can choose to not renew your policy for any reason at their convenience.

If you have any losses within the last 5 years that you feel should have been covered by your insurance carrier or have any questions regarding coverage on a claim, call us today at: 786-472-1812. You may also send questions to
