My Home Has Just Been Damaged by a Natural Catastrophe. Now What?
In Florida, disasters such as flooding or hurricanes are common. There are basic steps that insured homeowners must follow in the event of a catastrophic disaster. Each case is unique and the handling process can be complex and constantly changing. However, you shouldn't handle your claim alone. Insurance companies have adjusters and lawyers, which is why you should have a knowledgeable and experienced lawyer working to protect you as well.
To protect ourselves, we pay our insurance premiums in "good faith," and we expect that our insurance companies will protect us and our property in the event of a catastrophe that may damage or destroy our home. Unfortunately, insurance companies underpay, delay, or deny compensation for homeowners, oftentimes unreasonably. You may find yourself at a loss or the compensation you were awarded may feel insufficient.
You have the right to contest your recovery amount, and you will not be dropped from your homeowner insurance policy should you choose to dispute the amount your insurance company offers for settlement. If you or your family had to move or relocate from your home due to severe property damage, we always fight on your behalf to seek the maximum compensation to ensure your family's safety, and recover your living expenses.
