Did you know that hurricane names are established well before they form? Each year, the World Meteorological Organization releases lists of upcoming tropical storms for both the Atlantic and Pacific oceans, and this year there is a possibility that Florida may need to endure the power of Hurricane Faye. Of course, there is no guarantee that any of these named storms will gain enough power to be upgraded to a hurricane, or hit Florida at all, but regardless of the specific storms, it is important that you know how to get the help you deserve in order to get the money you need out of your insurance policies.

Trying to get the money that you need out of the insurance policy that you diligently pay into each month can be much more difficult than you expect, but when you work with a legal professional, the process can be much easier, and result in you getting more than you may have received otherwise.

Common Hurricane Claims in Florida

Hurricanes are costly and destructive, and insurance companies that handle hurricane claims are very experienced in saving themselves as much money as possible while resolving their clients’ claims. Whether or not you have experienced any of the following damages, filing alongside a lawyer can be a great way to ensure that you have a better chance of a fair settlement.

Fallen Trees

When a tree falls on your home, vehicle, or other property that is protected under an insurance policy, the process to get your payment is often more complicated than you may expect. The claims adjuster will have to investigate all sorts of questions before they even determine whether or not this incident is covered under their policy, before then moving on to trying to find every possible reason to limit your final payment. Your lawyer will be your first line of defense against their tactics. 

Flooding

Floods are very common in a state with as much waterfront property in Florida, which means that insurance companies are extremely experienced in handling these claims in a way that benefits their own financial interests best. When you have an experienced attorney handling your claim, they will be able to advocate for you so that every impact of the flood is considered and included as a line item in the insurance company’s estimates. 

Damage to Vehicles

Determining which insurance policy you should file a claim with if your car is damaged in a hurricane can be confusing, but even once you have determined where to take your claim, the rest of the process is no easier. In order to make sure that your situation is accurately represented to the insurance company, and that your settlement is negotiated aggressively, hire an attorney today.
