Helping Homeowners Stand Up to Their Insurance Companies
Hurricane damage is generally caused by wind and flood water. The specific manner in which your home is damaged is important because different insurers cover different risks. However, insurance coverage should provide a level of basic services and needs for policyholders immediately following a storm. According to the terms of your policy, your insurer may provide:
- Replacement costs for damaged personal property such as electronics, furnishings and appliances
- Reimbursement for food and shelter if your house is uninhabitable after the hurricane
- Damage to your roof or home caused by a neighbor's tree
- Property damage to your vehicle
- Payment for the removal of downed trees, branches and debris
Too often, insurance companies fail to live up to their promises to policyholders, either denying claims, undervaluing them or downplaying available coverage. If your insurance company fails to offer you a reasonable settlement for your hurricane damages, it is important that you hire an attorney to help you stand up to your insurer.
