Vandalism Insurance Claims
Vandalism occurs when someone intentional and deliberately causes destruction to another’s property. Examples of your car being vandalized include it being keyed or spray painted, having the windows broken, or having your tires slashed. If your property has been vandalized you should make a report with the police and contact your insurance provider. Unfortunately, your insurance provider may not be as inclined to assist you as you believe.
As South Florida vandalism attorneys we have seen numerous cases where individuals where led to believe they had “full coverage” by their insurance agent. The insured thought this until they were involved in an accident or incident and told their policy did not provide for it. A typical Florida auto insurance policy will be broken down into various types of coverage. Physical damage coverage is further broken down into 2 categories: comprehensive coverage and collision coverage. Comprehensive coverage, also known as an “all-risks policy”, covers physical damage to your automobile that results from something other than a collision and is generally subject to a deductible. For vandalism and other non-accident damage (such as malicious mischief, theft, fire or larceny) you may make a claim against your comprehensive coverage.

If you have been the victim of vandalism when your vehicle was located at an establishment you may be able to assert a claim for premise liability. The owners and managers of storefronts have a duty to secure the safety of consumers who attend their establishments. This means that shopping centers, malls, and other stores need to make reasonable efforts to keep their businesses and parking lots safe from crime and vandalism. Our Broward County personal injury lawyers can help you if your vehicle has been damaged due to a business or other premise owner’s failure to secure sufficient protection for you and other patrons.
