Church and Non-Profit Insurance Disputes in Florida
Florida insurance dispute attorneys protecting the rights of non-profits and houses of worship
It’s wrong to think that just because religious organizations, charities, and nonprofits aren’t focused on making a profit that they don’t have expenses. If building structures are damaged or contents are lost, these organizations need insurance to cover the cost of repairs or the cost to rebuild. Just like for-profit companies, these organizations should also have business interruption insurance to cover lost revenue and expenses if their operations stop for a week, a month, months, or a year.
At Warhurst Law, we represent religious organizations and nonprofits in Florida that help seniors, veterans, the disabled, those who provide services for children, and any organization that is created to help people and communities. Attorney Gene Warhurst’s first-hand experience as a claims adjuster gives him insights into how the insurance industry works – knowledge that has been passed along to his team. If an insurance company is stalling or delaying, we’ll fight to hold it accountable. Our firm has secured millions of dollars on behalf of our clients, including:
- $2.226 million in additional compensation for a church facing fire losses, where the church was originally offered $973,003
- $1.79 million in additional compensation for a church facing fire losses
- $1.566 million in additional compensation for a worship center originally offered less than $100,000 for damages
Every organization needs a home. Florida churches, synagogues, and mosques are designed in a unique way to create a spiritual atmosphere for the congregants. When a religious home or the home for any charity or nonprofit is destroyed, they want to rebuild or make repairs as quickly as possible – so those who pray, or those in need, get the religious or other type of help they need.
Churches, charities, and non-profits should have property insurance to cover most types of physical damage. They may also need flood insurance to cover damage from hurricanes and storms.
Our Florida insurance dispute lawyers work to help rebuild sectarian and non-sectarian homes by working to ensure payment for:
- The cost to repair or rebuild any damaged buildings. The owners should have records, blueprints, videos, or other building information so that the building can look like it did before disaster struck.
- The cost to move the church or nonprofit to a temporary site until repairs can be made. This may include the cost to lease a new building or modify an existing one.
- The expenses for any new equipment or tools. For example, some medical practices are non-profit. In order to service a new location, they may need to rent new X-Ray machines, stethoscopes, computers, and other items.
