Hurricane Michael or IRMA Insurance Claim?
We Can Help You Maximize Recovery! You Don’t Pay Unless We Win!
Insurance companies make a profit for their investors when they receive more in premiums than they pay out in claims. That means insurance companies always have an incentive to pay as little as possible to policyholders when they file claims for property damage after large-scale events like Hurricane Michael or Irma. That is why it is critical to have an experienced and knowledgeable attorney fighting for your rights.
The hurricane property damage attorneys at Kanner & Pintaluga are here to protect your rights and win the maximum recovery for your claim after a disaster like Hurricane Michael or Irma.

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.
Hurricane roof damage is all too common in Florida. With winds raging between 74 and 156 miles per hour, it’s hard for even the most solidly constructed and well-maintained roofs to get through hurricane-force winds unscathed.
A flood is a natural event where a piece of land that is usually dry suddenly gets submerged under water. Flooding can occur from excessive rainfall or due to storm surge during a hurricane. Traditional homeowners insurance doesn’t cover flood damage.
Hail resulting from a hurricane is rare but does occur. Hurricanes tend to be warmer than most hail-producing storms and the strong winds carry the hail horizontally, which allows it more time to melt. When a hurricane does deliver hail it can be quite destructive.
Most hurricane damage is attributed to wind and storm surge. Not only do 100 miles per hour plus winds tear up roofs and other property, they can also turn debris into projectiles which can inflict significant damage on homes and businesses.
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
