Final Judgment - Insurance Claim - Miami-Dade County

Miami Associate Klyde Bedford recently obtained a very hard fought final judgment on behalf of CSK's client.

The case involved a hurricane claim presented to our clients. After our client adjusted the loss, and afforded coverage, the insured attempted to file a supplemental claim beyond the 3 year limitation imposed by both the policy and Florida statute. The court had originally denied the MSJ and found there was a question of fact if this was a supplemental claim or a continued adjustment of the original claim.

The day the court originally denied the motion, the 3rd DCA authored an opinion that clarified the issue. We immediately moved for rehearing, which the court granted last week, and asked the parties to submit competing orders. Klyde drafted a 9 page order detailing both the extensive facts and cases that supported our position. Ultimately, the court adopted the order as its own and granted final judgment in our clients favor.
