ENVIRONMENTAL DAMAGE CLAIMS
HAS your LAND been damaged by ENVIRONMENTAL contamination?
We Can Help You With Your ENVIRONMENTAL Damage Claim (New, Pending and Denied)
The Knecht Law Group is a property damage claims law firm with offices in Florida that focus on all types of property damage cases, including ENVIRONMENTAL damage claims. With over 70 years of combined legal, construction and property damage claim experience, the law firm of The Knecht Law Group is committed to helping you receive the highest compensation that you are entitled to under the law for your ENVIRONMENTAL damage claim. We service both State and Federal courts throughout the state of Florida.
Since the 1980s, a tidal wave of environmental liability claims have been asserted against property owners, public and private, under environmental statutes such as the Comprehensive Environmental Response Compensation and Liability Act (CERCLA), the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA), state environmental cleanup laws and state underground storage tank laws. These burdensome claims—often in the many millions of dollars—have presented a financial challenge to these public entities, businesses and individuals against whom they are asserted.
The Knecht & Knecht Environmental Insurance Claims Team is known for its expertise in establishing the existence, terms and conditions of policies and securing litigation defense coverage and environmental investigation and cleanup funds for policyholders from their insurance carriers. We have advised clients regarding potential environmental liability at property sites and helped our clients in obtaining substantial cleanup funds from insurers.
Our team will work closely with you to collect and review policies and secondary evidence of coverage where policies are lost or missing, to retain and instruct insurance investigators to find available coverage, and to provide coverage analysis and options. We also work with policyholders to explore the range of options available under old policies and to obtain full insurance coverage for site investigation and cleanup costs. The range of options includes contacting insurers to demand payment of the costs of defending suits or claims brought against the policyholder by governmental agencies or third parties; negotiating with insurance companies to obtain funding for full cleanup costs; and/or orchestrating cash-out settlements resulting in carrier payment of a lump sum in exchange for a policy buy-back. If compromise is not advantageous, we will not hesitate to take your case to court.
If you are filing an insurance claim for ENVIRONMENTAL damage or other covered expenses and you are facing obstacles from your insurance company, the law firm of The Knecht Law Group can assist you.
