Filing an Insurance Claim for Lightning Damage in Florida
An estimated 3 to 5 percent of homeowners insurance claims are lightning related. That figure may be higher in Florida, the lightning capital of the world. And whenever there are lots of claims, there are insurance companies strategizing to deny, delay and devalue those claims.
If you sustained a fire or other property damage from a lightning strike, but your insurance provider is giving you the runaround, Corless Barfield Trial Group provides the experienced and aggressive representation to pursue fair and timely compensation for your losses.
If you have hail damage in the Tampa Bay area or anywhere in Florida, call our Tampa law office at 813-498-1623 or 877-517-5595 today to schedule a free initial consultation.
Tampa Attorney for Lightning Damage Claims
Lightning strikes with millions of volts of electricity and generates thousands of degrees of heat. Even with grounding wires and surge protection devices, a direct lightning hit on your home or business can cause massive damage. We have represented both residential and commercial property owners in insurance coverage disputes and bad faith claims for lightning damage, including:
- Fire and smoke damage
- Damaged electronics (TVs, computers, gaming systems)
- Damaged appliances
- Compromised wiring
- Exterior damage
- Fallen tree damage or tree removal costs
What is covered depends on your policy, your insurance company ... and perhaps your legal representation. Insurers will routinely try to settle claims for minimal amounts, endlessly delay payment in hopes that the owner will give up, or utterly deny claims as not covered by insurance.
