And that is just the beginning. Irma was the largest hurricane to ever hit Florida, leaving virtually no part of the state untouched. As residents and business owners struggle with the emotional and financial loss, they are turning to their insurance companies for help in recovering from this disaster. And while everyone hopes for the maximum payout for repairs, getting it is not always a given. Which is why you need to understand your legal rights under your insurance policy. Andrew Norden, a leading Florida hurricane damage lawyer, outlines the steps below to file your property damage insurance claim:

Typically, a comprehensive insurance policy covers the following:

  • Damage to or loss of your home.
  • Damage to other structures on your property, such as sheds, a pool, decking, fences, etc.
  • Damage to the contents of your home.
  • Compensation for the loss of the use of your home if you’re unable to live there.
  • Payments to third parties for liability or medical expenses.

Here are the steps you need to take to begin the claim insurance filing process.

When You Need an Insurance Claims Attorney

If your insurance company has denied your claim or has failed to respond in a timely manner, you may need to call in a hurricane property damage attorney to assert your legal rights and protect your financial future.

Unfortunately, insurance companies have been known to undervalue or deny claims when first submitted. This is because they are a business, and their focus is on maximizing profits, not in paying out claims. And because of the widespread devastation across Florida from Irma, your claim will just be one in several hundred thousand that requires review and consideration before any payments are made.

This can prove to be a financial hardship for you and your family if your insurance company denies your claim or does not settle it in a timely manner. When it comes to that, you need an insurance claims attorney to fight for you and get you the support you need as soon as possible.

Under Florida law, only a licensed attorney can represent you in civil court in your property insurance dispute claim. If successful, your attorney’s fees are paid by your insurance company and will not come out of your settlement.

If you are experiencing or anticipating any problems with your personal or commercial property damage claim, you can contact Andrew Norden a leading Hurricane damage lawyer with the Osborne & Francis law firm. The firm is providing free case reviews now for victims of Hurricane Irma.

Quick and fair resolution to a unique case. On advice of my own attorney, I engaged Joseph Osborne of Osborne & Francis of Boca Raton, FL. Mr. Osborne had considerable experience in cases such as mine and the results showed that. Mr. Osborne and his staff were very helpful, kept me up to date, and listened to my input. The settlement was very fair as far as I am concerned.

“Attorneys Greg Francis and Ryan Fletcher at Osborne & Francis Law Firm represented me in my personal injury case.The defendant drew a line in the sand and was adamant on a settlement amount I was almost willing to accept. After the dust settled and the smoke cleared, we settled for 3 times that amount!!! When they say ‘Real Tough Lawyers,’ they mean it.”
