Sam Jubran, P.A. can be the trusted experts in advocating for your best interests. Other than reporting a claim, don’t talk to them or sign anything until you’ve spoken to one of our attorneys first. Absolutely don’t give them a recorded statement. This is something our office might allow and will mediate if so. Many times, an insurance company will offer you a settlement early on, in an effort to conclude the claim prematurely. Avoid this at all costs and call our office as soon as possible.
There are certain statutory deadlines that must be met by a claimant in Florida so it’s imperative that you speak to an attorney now.
