Insurance Disputes Over Property Damage From Mold
Once mold takes hold, it is nearly impossible to get rid of it. The only real remedy is to remove the infested materials and treat the underlying water leak or moisture intrusion problem. Unfortunately, insurance companies usually balk at the necessary remediation because of the expense; they either deny mold claims or offer only to pay for cover-up remedies.

We know that it can be a health hazard, that it devalues your property and that it may be a symptom of bigger problems, even structural damage. Our Tampa law firm has helped property owners stand up to insurance companies for full and fair coverage of mold damage and related claims.
