Areas of Practice

We are aggressive experienced attorneys in the following areas

Sinkhole Damage

If you suspect that your home may be experiencing sinkhole related damage, do not wait. Contact our office immediately for a free consultation, and we will have your home inspected by a team of professionals to determine whether you have a claim.

Fire Damage

Fire damage can be very difficult to deal with. Insurance companies often require a homeowner to fill out complicated forms in order to recover for devastating loss of a home and personal belongings. Failure to fill out those forms correctly could be fatal to your claim. The attorneys at Smith, Kling & Thompson can provide you with the assistance needed to ensure you claim is being properly handled.

Medical Negligence

Medical malpractice is professional negligence by a health care provider in which the treatment provided falls below the medical community’s accepted standard of practice. With many cases involving medical error, injury or death to the patient may be a result.

Water Damage

Every insurance policy is different, but most cover sudden losses caused by water damage. Often, insurance companies deny claims stating that the damage was caused by constant and repeated seepage. These denials may be improper. For advice on whether your water damage is covered by your policy, contact us for a free consultation.

Personal Injury

Personal injury cases are cases brought on your behalf when you suffer either physical or emotional injuries as the result of someone else’s actions. These types of cases include slip and falls, defective products, assaults and batteries, dog bites and car accidents.

Bodily Injury

Bodily Injury claims are similar to personal injury claims and can be brought against an insurance company when you are injured due to another person’s negligence. If you have been injured and believe someone else is at fault, please contact us for a free consultation.

Hurricane Damage

High speed winds and flooding are primary causes of hurricane-inflicted damage. Destruction of property, and even loss of life, can result. Wind damage may result from an event caused solely by the effect of nature or natural causes, without any interference by humans whatsoever.

Hail Damage

Hail can cause serious damage, especially to automobiles, aircraft, skylights, glass-roofed structures, livestock and, most commonly, farmers' crops. Hail damage to roofs is difficult to identify, and often goes unnoticed until further structural damage, such as leaks or cracking, is identified.

Mold Damage

Many policies of insurance cover mold damage, yet some only afford coverage to a certain limit. Even if you have a mold exclusion or limitation, there still may be coverage for your loss depending upon the origins of the mold. It is important that you consult with someone who understands how to read your insurance policy if you are denied a mold claim.

Termite Damage/Collapse Claims

Many wood framed homes, apartments, or condo complexes in Florida suffer termite damage. What many property owners do not realize is that termite damage may be covered under your insurance policy.
