Hurricane Damage and Insurance Lawsuits
A hurricane is one of nature’s most destructive forces, able to destroy homes and entire neighborhoods in just hours. The financial loss and emotional toll a hurricane or tropical storm can take is absolutely devastating. If you have a homeowner’s or condominium or business insurance policy, you may have some methods to recover money to pay for damage to your structure, your personal property, and other things. However, hurricane and tropical storm damage is not always covered. Even though you pay for insurance each month, you must recognize the reality that insurance companies are in business to make money, making it your burden to prove each of your damages. They often will not “volunteer” to just pay you money. If you don’t understand how to present your claim, or what is covered, or what kind of insurance you need, you will likely not recover all of the money you deserve.
On average, about 13 named storms and hurricanes hit each storm season. Billions of dollars of damage occur every year. With the possibility of these disastrous storms each year, homeowners along storm-susceptible areas need to know exactly what their insurance policy covers, what their policy does not cover, and what to do after the storm happens.
