Everyday thunderstorms can cause great damage to your property due to high winds, lightning strikes and flash flooding.
Roof damage is all to common in Florida. With winds, storms and hail raging, its hard for even the most solidly constructed and well-maintained roofs to get through this type of abuse.
Hailstorms can cause major damage to your property that can result in costly repairs.
Not only do high winds tear up roofs and other property, they can also turn debris into projectiles which can inflict significant damage to homes and businesses.
Water can cause serious damage to property and promote the growth of toxic mold that render the premises unusable. Although flood damage may be excluded from your insurance, some types of hurricane water damage may be covered.
When a tornado strikes its powerful winds can cause massive damages resulting in expensive repairs to your home or business.
Lightning strikes that hit your property can travel through your wiring causing severe damage to all appliances and equipment plugged into your outlets. Lightning can also spark fires that can cause damage to your home or property.
A leaky roof will start out as a small water stain on the ceiling or on the walls. After a short time, small leaks turn into big issues such as mold, rotted framing, damaged walls and ceilings.
Fire & Smoke Damage
After a fire your property will have several kinds of damages from flames, smoke and water used to put the fire out. This may cause structural problems along with soot and smoke damage to all your personal property.
Sinkholes occur gradually when ground water erodes under your property often weakening the foundation, flooring and walls. Along with separating your house from the foundation, pipes breaking and swimming pool leaks.
The majority of vandalism cases are covered on your insurance policy. Contact the authorities immediately to get a police report filed covering all property and possessions stolen or damaged.
Damage to your vessel can easily result in costly repairs.
Hurricane season runs from June 1st to November 30th and sometimes later. Hurricanes have winds in excess of 74 mph, storm surges, flooding, and tornadoes that can cause major damage to all types of property.
What Our Clients Are Saying
How Do Attorneys Help After Disasters?
Without the expertise of an insurance professional or a hurricane damage lawyer, it can be difficult for the average policyholder to know whether their property’s hurricane damage should or shouldn’t be covered. A hurricane damage law firm can help hold insurance companies accountable. They can review your policies and the damage your property suffered to provide clarity regarding what should and should not be covered. A civil litigation attorney can help their client dispute claim denials or fight for a client who feels they were misled about their coverage when they purchased their insurance policy.
We Work With Public Adjusters on Your Hurricane Damage Property Claim
If you file a homeowners insurance claim after your home has suffered hurricane damage, the insurance company should send out a claims adjuster. After a large-scale event like Hurricane Michael or Irma, there aren’t enough claims adjusters to go around, which means temporary or out-of-state adjusters are brought in to pick up the slack. These claims adjusters aren’t always thoroughly trained or familiar with the types of damage hurricanes can cause, which sometimes results in policyholders getting shortchanged on their insurance claim settlement offer.
Public insurance adjusters are adept at helping analyze a property’s hurricane damage and can provide a second opinion on the damage and what a homeowners policy covers. They are not employees of your insurance company, so they don’t have a vested interest in minimizing claim payouts after a hurricane.
Excuses Insurance Companies Sometimes Use to Deny or Underpay Property Damage Claims:
- Claim not exceeding your deductible
- Exclusions in your policy
- Maintenance issues
- Pre-existing damages
- Limitations in your policy
