Sinkhole Under Apartment Building
Sinkhole activity can present significant challenges to apartment building owners. As an owner, you will need to juggle the insurance claim issues — from filing the claim to understanding the test results to making sure the insurer properly handles the matter. Also, your relationship with your tenants will be affected, as they will need to move out until the building is deemed safe. Having an experienced attorney at your side, guiding you through the process, can impact the outcome of the situation.
At Corless Barfield Trial Group, our lawyer represents apartment building owners in Tampa and the surrounding communities in sinkhole damage claims. Our goal is to minimize the business disruption caused by the sinkhole activity and help you get the problem resolved efficiently and effectively.
Tampa Sinkhole Damage Lawyer
Sinkhole damage cases involving single-family homes are drastically different than sinkhole cases involving apartment buildings. Because apartment buildings are larger, they require more extensive testing to determine the presence of sinkhole activity. Therefore, the cost of hiring an independent engineering firm to perform the tests is significantly higher.
If we take on your case, we handle all out-of-pocket costs up front. That means we will pay for the evaluation and only get paid when we successfully recover compensation on your behalf. When you are looking for an attorney to handle your apartment building sinkhole claim, you want a lawyer with the experience and resources to help reach a favorable outcome. Our experience and authority in this area of the law speaks volumes about our ability and skill.
