While many Florida property claim law firms have stopped taking AOB cases as a result of House Bill 7065 becoming effective last year, Insurance Litigation Group (ILG) continues to successfully litigate AOB disputes with Florida property insurance companies on behalf of roofers, water mitigation companies, mold remediation contractors, general contractors, plumbers and electricians.
Here are the challenges: The law requires that certain language be included in the assignment of benefits contract, provides timeframes to submit documents, and requires various conditions be met for an AOB claim to be compliant.
But the AOB industry is not dead. While there have not been any precedents determined by the upper courts, jurisdictions currently seem to be conflicted on certain issues. Furthermore, insurance companies have had different responses to the submission of the AOB claim documentation.
At ILG, we are a top-10 property claim law firm and have been representing AOB contractors for more than a decade. We are determined to help our contractor clients succeed with their cases. We have also implemented new processes and procedures to ensure compliance with the new law and are working closely with our AOB clients to give them the best chance at recovering their invoices.
Insurance Litigation Group is a client-focused law firm that fights aggressively on behalf of residential and commercial policyholders, contractors, mitigation companies, and public adjusters, to produce maximum recovery results from insurance companies through the firm’s deep understanding of insurance law, cutting edge technology, and proactive approach to litigation.
