What Happens If My Insurance Company Confirms Sinkhole Activity?

Sinkhole activity can damage one of your most precious and valuable assets — your home. This can cause major stress and the idea of dealing with an insurance company can be overwhelming, even if they do confirm sinkhole activity. Many people in Florida are tempted to take the first monetary offer that an insurance company makes because they just want to make the repairs and resolve the matter.

Consult an experienced sinkhole attorney before you accept any offer from your insurance company.

An insurance company may acknowledge that there is sinkhole activity on your property, but their offer will only be for cosmetic damages. These repairs may include cracked tiles or grout work and the recommendations may be for the cheapest, quick-fix available. The insurer’s proposal protocol may be insufficient, and that is why they are only offering to cover a fraction of the real damage.

Attorney K.C. Williams will have independent experts review the repairs and if they are not sufficient, we will propose other repairs to make sure your property is restored to its pre-loss condition. Our goal is to ensure that your claim and coverage is adequate to return your property to a condition that is habitable, safe and to your specifications.

Sinkhole activity is a major problem that demands results. Do not settle with your insurer without consulting with our firm. We have the experience to review your claim and make sure the offer is acceptable.
