Representing Property Owners in Storm and Hail Damage Insurance Claims
Anyone who lives in Florida understands the weather can be tricky. One minute it is sunny and the next minute, you’re experiencing a violent storm with hail, high winds, flash flooding and even tornados. Even our legendary afternoon thunderstorms can cause damage.
If your home incurred damage due to a storm, you likely plan on turning to your homeowner’s insurance company for help. However, be prepared for possible complications to arise before you receive the necessary payment for repairs.
At The Orlando Law Group, we know how difficult property insurance companies can be, especially after widespread damage from storms.
Insurance companies often deal with numerous claims following a storm, and the processing time can be delayed significantly. In the end, your insurer might make an offer that is far lower than expected.
To make this process go smoother, and to ensure you receive the full benefits you deserve, contact a storm damage lawyer in Orlando for assistance with your claim.
What kind of property damage can happen with a storm?
The property damage from a storm is varied and highly dependent on where your property is located near the damage.
For instance, a Florida tornado can uproot trees on one side of a street, but not another. A hailstorm may total your car but leave your house undamaged. The insurance companies will use everything they have at their disposal, including high-tech weather models that plot damage to deny your claim.
Some of the storm damage you could experience includes:
- Dents and broken glass from hailstorms
- Trees falling into property
- Projectiles breaking window or causing other damage
- Flash flooding, especially for unmaintained storm drains
- Electrical surges from lighting
- Downed fences or other minor damage
- Water damage from roof leaks
Standing Up to Insurance Companies
Storm damage can involve wind damage, rain coming in through roof leaks, flooding, and more. It may be necessary to file different claims with different companies, depending on the type of damage that occurred. Each insurer can be difficult, often doing one or more of the following:
- Trying to reduce the value of your claim
- Requesting excessive or repetitive documents or evidence
- Delaying your claim without reason
- Offering far less than you need for repairs
In each of these types of tricks and more, the attorneys at The Orlando Law Group have fought through them all. We’ve worked defending claims like these for insurance companies and will use that experience on your behalf.
