The damages caused by hurricanes are well known to Floridians, and homeowner’s insurance companies are well-versed in their ability to limit your payment amounts for these damages, even though you pay into your policy diligently. The World Meteorological Society has designated the name Hanna for use with a 2020 storm. In the event that this storm is elevated to Hurricane Hanna and you suffer damage to your property, then the next step will be to file a claim with your homeowner’s or renter’s insurance, car insurance, and other policies that are available to compensate you for your losses.
Filing a claim is often as easy as simply submitting a claim on your insurer’s website or by calling your insurance agent, but the simplicity of submitting a claim is not the same thing as getting the money that you deserve. Insurance companies work hard to keep their filing processes simple so that people do not think that they need help from a lawyer, but the reality is that you will benefit from the support of an attorney in order to get the money that you deserve.

Broken windows are extremely common in high wind situations, and Hurricane Hanna is no different. When a window is broken during a hurricane, as opposed to when there is not high wind and high rain, this breach to the protective systems of your home can cause damage to the things inside your house as well as the window itself. You will need to claim the additional damages that were caused due to this broken window, not just the window.
Damage to a roof is extremely common when the winds and rains are very strong, but as with broken windows, damaged roofs can cause serious structural damage as well. When shingles, flashing, gutters, and weather barriers are torn from a roof, then the water damage can be extensive and cause widespread issues in your home, including mold, problems to your electrical system, and more.
Electrical and Fire Damage
Water and wind are extremely disruptive to electrical systems, and when a power line is downed due to a falling branch or wind, the combination of a live wire and lots of water can be catastrophic to people and property alike. Compromised electrical systems are very dangerous, and need to be addressed by professionals immediately in order to mitigate any additional possible risks, in addition to the need to quantify the damages that they cause as well.
