Since 1997, Ms. Niemeyer has helped marine businesses and individual marine insurance policyholders resolve their insurance coverage disputes.
Most commercial and personal lines marine policies provide that your insurance company will defend you in the event of a lawsuit or claim against the insured or the vessel. They also provide property insurance coverage to repair or replace your vessel if it is damaged by an accident or occurrence, including windstorm in most instances, and if you have crew coverage they provide special coverage for maritime claims made by crew under the Jones Act or other maritime law. However, marine insurance providers sometimes point to exclusions in policies to deny coverage, violate their duty to properly investigate the claim, or fail to provide representation for the insured as required by Florida law.
Insureds who may benefit from Ms. Niemeyer's assistance include:
- Shipping Companies
- Repair Facilities
- Charter Operators
- Dive Shops
- Individual Boat Owners
