Hurricane Shary Claims

Each year, NOAA publishes a list of names that will be used for the Atlantic basin tropical cyclones. The list for the 2022 hurricane season included Shary as a name for a potential tropical cyclone. The 2022 hurricane season began on June 1 and ends on November 30.

If a tropical cyclone forms in the Atlantic basin and reaches sustained winds of 39 mph (63 km/h), it will receive a name from the list, but even a named storm does not necessarily mean that it will be upgraded to a hurricane, which requires winds of 74 mph (119 km/h). Furthermore, there is no certainty that Hurricane Shary — if it emerges — will impact Florida at all. What is certain, though, is that the 2022 hurricane season, like every season before, will have an impact on Florida, and if NOAA predictions are accurate, this season will be one for the record books.

Whether or not Shary is a hurricane that Floridians ultimately must deal with, home and business owners need to know the ins and outs of filing a hurricane damage claim, as well as the importance of working with an attorney to get the amount they rightfully deserve.

How To File a Claim and When To Lawyer Up

Filing an insurance claim is one of the most important steps you can take after your home or business has been impacted by a hurricane. The process, however, is often more complicated than many people realize, and working with an experienced attorney can be the difference between getting the full amount you’re entitled to and being left holding the bag. You pay your premium every month, and you have every right to demand the full amount of damages that your policy is meant to cover.

Most people know they need to file a claim with their insurance company as soon as possible after a hurricane, but many don’t realize that the insurance company will likely send out an adjuster to assess the damage. This is where things can start to go wrong.

The adjuster works for the insurance company, not for you, and their job is to minimize the amount the company will have to pay out. They may try to lowball you on the cost of repairs or tell you that certain items are not covered. This is why it’s so important to have an experienced hurricane damage attorney on your side.

Your attorney will know how to deal with the insurance company and their adjusters, and they will ensure that you get the full amount you are owed. They will also help to expedite the process so that you can get your life back to normal as quickly as possible.

Don’t Wait To Get Help

The sooner you contact an attorney after a hurricane, the better. Many people make the mistake of waiting to see how much damage their home or business has sustained before they call a lawyer, but this is a mistake. The sooner you have an attorney on your side, the better equipped they will be to help you get the full amount you’re entitled to.
