Real estate is susceptible to all kinds of harmful damage. Sinkholes, wind, floods, plumbing leaks, mold, burglary, arson, vandalism, accidents, negligence, and natural disasters can all cause significant destruction to your property. Unfortunately, insurance companies commonly delay and deny claims, with property owners failing to receive the proper amount of compensation they deserve. 

Over the years, Corless Barfield Trial Group has helped hundreds of property owner clients recover compensation to account for their damages. We are proud of our exemplary record in complicated property damage cases, and we understand that clients have a great deal invested in the outcome.

CBTG represents policyholder interests in a variety of cases, including civil, criminal, and insurance/coverage. Our lawyers represent clients in suits against insurance companies and we prosecute claims against claims adjusters in cases where their negligence has caused or contributed to coverage issues in connection with a policyholder’s claim. In addition, our litigation practice includes the representation of commercial property owners in suits against third parties who are responsible for causing damage to its real property.

When your property has been damaged by someone else, or by outside forces, it ought to be replaced or compensated. Our lawyers work with property owners to manage that risk; anticipate vulnerabilities; determine the property owner’s rights and potential liabilities; and sue when the insurance company provides inadequate coverage and engages in bad faith practices.

Our law firm has extensive experience with the ongoing management of residential and commercial property in the State of Florida. Our understanding of the legal issues that may arise in the context of property management is unrivalled. CBTG works with owners, principals, residents, and contractors to represent their legal rights. We also advise cooperative and condominium boards on day-to-day operations, and represent boards, shareholders, and unit owners in legal disputes against insurance companies.

If you suffer a property loss, we recommend that you take photographs and record video of the damage, gather ownership documents, and make sure to keep a record of your communications with the insurer. If your claim is delayed or denied, you should consider obtaining legal assistance.

It is often the case that you will have to fight your insurance company to cover a loss you have suffered on your property. We utilize an aggressive, tenacious approach to help clients receive the compensation they deserve for various types of real estate damage and property loss.
