Get Help from a Miami Homeowner’s Insurance Attorney
It can be incredibly unsettling to learn that your home or business has
been ransacked by a burglar. Unfortunately, this type of shock is a reality
for countless Americans every year, with the Federal Bureau of Investigation
(FBI) reporting that more than 1.1 million residential burglaries occurred
across the United States in the 2014 alone. While many turn to their
homeowner’s insurance policies in these situations for much-needed financial assistance, unfortunately,
insurance companies are often less-than-eager to uphold their end of the
bargain and may sometimes resort to shady tactics to limit or deny coverage.

an uncooperative insurance company, call Cohen Law today. Having fought

What Losses Can I Recoup?
The aftermath of a burglary can be devastating, especially if the stolen
items were of considerable monetary or sentimental value. Fortunately,
homeowner’s insurance typically includes coverage for damage to
your home and the theft of your possessions in the event of a break-in,
up to the limits of your claim. After a burglary, call the police and
document all damage with photos or video. Likewise, prepare an extensive
list of all stolen items and include in your claim receipts for any emergency
repairs you need to re-secure your home, such as fixing broken windows or locks.
Our team can help you pursue coverage for the following:
- Home repairs
- Stolen electronics
- Stolen cash
- Stolen jewelry
- Damaged items
It is important to note, however, that some policies will only reimburse
you for the actual cash value of your stolen or damaged property rather
than the cost of its replacement. Our attorneys can look through the specific
wording of your policy and fight to ensure you receive every penny’s
worth of your eligible coverage.
Retain the Powerful Support You Need
At Cohen Law, we strongly believe that if a person’s homeowner’s
insurance policy says it covers theft, it should. As a faithfully paying
policyholder, you have a right to be treated with the same level of respect
and receive all forms of compensation for which you are entitled. Through
negotiations with your insurer or litigation if absolutely necessary,
we have what it takes to help you move forward after your burglary with
peace of mind.
