A Property Damage Attorney Can Help You Recover After a Devasting Hurricane
When your home is damaged after a storm like Hurricane Sally, you’ll typically file a claim with your home and flood insurance companies. Then, you’ll work with an insurance adjuster who will process and investigate your claim. Then, the adjuster will either offer you a settlement or deny your property damage claim. Like any business, the insurance company’s main goal is to make money, and many adjusters will try to cut the company’s costs by under-valuing or denying your legitimate hurricane damage claims.
The insurance company’s first settlement offer is usually too low to cover the full cost of repairing or replacing your hurricane-damaged home. Unfortunately, many property owners don’t have the capacity to push back because they’re overwhelmed by stress and trying to rebuild their lives after a powerful storm. So, they take an unreasonably low settlement because it seems easier. The insurance companies know this, which is why they keep offering insultingly low settlement amounts; if they provide one at all.
If you know your claim was legitimate, you shouldn’t have to put up with unfair treatment from the insurance company. The most reliable way to get the compensation and results you deserve? Hiring an experienced attorney to fight for you.
How Do Lawyers Help With Insurance Claims?
Property damage insurance claims are complicated, especially after a hurricane. There’s a lot of technical analysis that goes into a hurricane damage claim. For example, your insurance company may wrongly claim that your policy doesn’t cover water or wind damage. If you don’t have a partner who can help you interpret your insurance contract’s hard-to-understand language and the law, you may lose out on valuable compensation.
When you need help after a bad storm, it’s in your best interest to work with a property damage attorney to get the compensation you need. An experienced, aggressive attorney can hold your insurance company accountable by helping you understand what should be covered, how much your claim is worth, and assisting in collecting the evidence you need to file a successful claim.
The Andy Citrin Injury Attorneys team can help you understand whether your policies cover wind damage, flooding, storm surge, sewer backups, and other common hurricane issues. Then, we’ll fight to get you and your family a fair settlement and won’t back down when the insurance company acts unreasonably.
