Florida Hurricane Damage Attorneys
Get Experienced Help After a Hurricane or Tropical Storm
Hurricanes can be catastrophic and insurance claims do not always pay for the actual damages incurred. Hurricanes can destroy properties, towns, cities, and even counties. Insurance companies should immediately pay policyholders for losses due to the property damaged from a hurricane or hurricane-related weather, back to its pre-loss condition. Unfortunately, insurance companies are in business to make money and receive premiums for a risk factor and are not always in the position to pay each claim promptly or adequately.
If you need help with a property damage claim after a hurricane, The Knoerr Law Group can assist you. Our Florida hurricane damage lawyers know exactly how to deal with these claims. We can also help if your claim has been denied, undervalued, or delayed. Our goal is your full recovery.
Types of Losses Caused by Hurricanes
A hurricane can cause significant damage to any home or business. Representing commercial and residential property owners in and around Florida, our attorneys can help ensure every loss is properly documented and that full payment is pursued under your policy.
Damage from a hurricane may be caused by:
Policyholders/insured don’t always know what their policies allow when an event like a hurricane occurs. No one expects a hurricane or prepares for their property to be damaged or destroyed. Policyholders have a right to demand all funds available, even excess of the full amount as shown on the declarations page of their policy for the property that has been damaged.
Your Right to the Full Value of Your Hurricane Claim
Not only does the policyholder have the right to enforce full payment, they have a right to sue their carrier when the insurance company does not fully and promptly pay the loss. After a hurricane, policyholders expect their insurance companies to do the right thing. Not every claim will be paid promptly or adequately. Devastating hurricane losses may even leave policyholders in scenarios where they do not have the ability to contact their insurance companies.
As soon as possible after a hurricane, contact your insurance company and your agent, then go to the website of your carrier to put in the claim. Seek online claims help for the carrier that you have immediately or hire The Knoerr Law Group and we will make sure that the claim is filed properly and move forward with you to pursue a positive result.
