Do I have a case for arbitration against my insurance co. on a theft claim?

1 Answers. Asked on Oct 10th, 2017 on Insurance - Florida
More details to this question:
My vehicle was stolen 8/15/17, and Geico, my auto insurer, was in process of fulfilling a Total Loss Claim. I had signed, with a notary, and sent back a title transfer and an affidavit to pay my finance company. It was sent next day air mail but it was over a weekend, so wouldn't receive until the next Monday. The vehicle was then recovered and I was notified, the next Tuesday. But because of some foot dragging on Geico's end and my claim representative being absent that Monday, nothing was processed and payment was never sent. So now, they want to repair, and to be honest, I think I'm getting screwed. The vehicle was in excellent condition prior to its theft, and bruised condition upon recovery. Between 4000 and 6000 miles were driven on the car and lots of body damage. Along with maintenance issues. My questions are: 1. Shouldn't wear and tear be covered? 2. Shouldn't they honor the legal documents that I signed and returned to them?

Insurance enables people and companies to reduce the risk of suffering a catastrophic financial loss. Insurance attorneys offer a variety of services to both individuals and small businesses. For example, paying a small health insurance premium protects you in the event you are in an accident or diagnosed with a health condition that requires expensive treatment. Individual consumers may commonly purchase health insurance, automobile insurance, homeowner's insurance and/or renter's insurance. Businesses need a variety of policies to protect both their property and the company in the event of a lawsuit. Your insurance lawyer can review your existing policies and advise you on additional policies or coverage that may be necessary to protect you or your company from potential risks. Insurance law firms can also help you challenge insurance claims that have been denied in "bad faith," or in violation of the terms and conditions of the policy. And insurance lawyers can represent you if you are sued for something that is covered by an existing insurance policy.
