Why Hire a Hurricane Insurance Claim Attorney?
Many hurricane victims do not understand their rights or even know how to determine the full extent of their losses after a storm or even which insurance company may be responsible. Most people believe that if they have insurance and want only what is fair, everything will be fine. Unfortunately, that is usually not the case. Victims often fail to realize they need an attorney or fail to seek one out because they are afraid they won't be able to afford one. That, also, is usually not the case. It's been our experience that when we put our resources to work on a hurricane insurance claim, policyholders typically recover far more than what an insurance company initially offered, even after paying attorney fees.
We handle most cases on a contingency fee, which means we do not get paid unless you get paid, which means you will not have to pay any upfront fees or costs. Waiting to see if the insurance company does “the right thing” is a huge gamble, particularly when hurricane victims may have no way to fully determine and understand the scope of their damages and the complete cost to repair. We have a vast network of adjusters, contractors and other experts that we can call upon to accurately assess your damages, help you thoroughly document and itemize all of your belongings, and analyze complex weather data to show what natural forces caused damage to your home. Having an attorney acting in your best interest when dealing with an insurance company after a significant storm is one of the best ways to ensure your rights are protected and you recover as much as possible on your hurricane insurance claim. If you have suffered damage from a storm and are unsure of the extent of your damages, the cost to repair, or the value of your insurance claim, contact us.
