Florida Statutes Regulating Public Adjusters Sinkhole Claims

Important changes have been made to the Florida Statutes regulating the business of public adjusters in the past couple of years.  Below are some that are the most important,

Subsection 627.706(5), F.S., was created to limit the time period a policyholder can present an initial, supplemental or reopened claim under an insurance policy that provides sinkhole coverage. Under this subsection, these claims are barred unless notice was given to the insurer in accordance with the terms of the policy within 2 years after the policyholder knew or reasonably should have known about the sinkhole loss.
