As many people know hurricane season in our state is accompanied by large amounts of anxiety. Whether it be about how to ensure you and your family have enough food and water, will you lose power, or is your home going to survive the storm? Unfortunately in these instances a lot of these questions are unknowns. Sure, meteorologists can track the trajectory of a storm but they can never truly tell you the havoc which may wreak once it hits landfall. 

Due to the unpredictability factor, a lot of individuals decide to just evacuate their homes and hope for the best. Sometimes thing turn out fine but other times they come back to an unbelievable amount of damages. Some of the common things people see after a storm are: 

  • Broken windows

  • Flooding

  • Harm to boats, cars, and other vehicles

  • Moisture damage

  • Damage to costly outdoor fixtures including pools, sheds, and landscaping

  • Roof lifting, destruction of shingles, gutters, and siding

  • Structural damage to the home’s walls, porches, and outer buildings

We will help you pursue the insurance companies and read the policy’s details to ensure you get the compensation you deserve. 

What Are The Major Causes Of Hurricane Damage?

The State of Florida endures some form of hurricane damage almost every year. While the severity of these storms may vary, the purpose of having hurricane insurance is to protect you in times of need. When damage occurs to your home or property, you expect your insurance company to have your back. Unfortunately, in a lot of these cases they have other plans as to how to handle them.

During a hurricane your home is subject to conditions such as high winds, storm surges, and torrential rains. These conditions can  damage and penetrate every part of your home or business. Although seem of these damages may seem like some small repairs sometimes there is a lot of other issues beneath the surface such as mold or rust, etc. Insurance companies often delay payments or reject your claim you fully expected them to pay after hurricane damages. The emotional toll these damages and instances have on individuals is very taxing. Here at Property Lawyers PLLC we do not  want you to face the insurance claim process alone, we want to be there to help aid you and ensure that the most favorable outcome is the result.  

What Are Common Tactics Insurance Companies Use To Avoid Paying Policyholders?

Hurricanes cause billions of dollars in damages and once a storm has passed, insurance companies revert to trying to deny claims. This leaves policyholders in a compromised position, therefore we have compiled a list of things insurance companies try to use as evidence to deny your claim. 

This includes:

  • Any and all preexisting damages

  • Delaying claims close to the deadline

  • Denying payment for repairs they deem unnecessary

  • Making policyholders fill out large amounts of unnecessary paperwork

  • Stating the damages are not included in the policy

  • Underpaying the value of claims

Whatever way in which the insurance company tries to handle your claim a hurricane and storm loss attorney can help you pursue the most favorable outcome.
