Insurance Claims in Florida in the Aftermath of Hurricane Irma
Have You Been Denied Insurance Money for Your Claim Regarding Hurricane Irma?
Hurricane Irma brought massive – and in many places, total – devastation to people living in the state of Florida. Billions of dollars in damage was done and the majority of the state’s 20 million+ residents were left without power for days and, in some cases, weeks. It will take years for the people of the state to rebuild their towns and lives.
Obviously this has resulted in an avalanche of insurance claims throughout the state. So many that insurance agents are probably overwhelmed at this point. This means that you can have an insurance claim denied for many reasons, ranging from a straight up denial of a claim to a claim that has not been thoroughly examined or even gotten to yet, which can lead to delays.
If you have had an insurance claim you filed because of Hurricane Irma denied or delayed in Florida, you are probably going to need the help of an experienced attorney.
Why Do You Need an Attorney?
You get insurance for a reason. When something like a massive hurricane occurs, you expect your insurance company to be there for you. But in cases of widespread devastation, the chances are more likely that you are going to have to fight your insurance company to get your claim(s) paid.
If your home and/or business has suffered damage, it is imperative that you get the full value of your claim. You will need that money to rebuild your life. You will need someone fighting for you, someone who has experience in dealing with insurance companies in the state of Florida.
And consider this: how serious will an insurance company take your claim if you do not have an attorney? Compare that to how serious they will take it if you do have an attorney.
You Need Someone to Fight for You
As mentioned above, insurance companies in Florida are being slammed with claims right now. You need someone with experience to cut through all of that noise on your behalf.
An insurance claim could also be a long process, depending on how much property you have and how extensive the damage to it is. During that time, you are going to have a lot of other things you need to focus on.
Insurance companies also have extensive resources they can bring forward to dispute your claim, like adjustors and other experts. You need a law firm on your side that can muster similar resources – resources that will be fighting for you to get every penny you have coming.
When Disaster Strikes
The state of Florida is a hub for natural disasters. Hurricanes, flooding and other massive storms batter the peninsula every year. If you live in the state you know how volatile the weather is and how high the chances are that your property will get damaged by an act of Mother Nature. This is another reason to build a relationship with a law firm in the area.
