Common Types of Storm Damage
A bad storm can damage virtually any part of your property – your landscaping, home, vehicles, and other property structures. Storms in Tampa can be powerful enough to lift your roof from your home, push a tree down on top of your car, or flood your property. At our law firm, we have the experience and education to handle any type of storm damage insurance claim. We are Tampa locals who understand the nature of our area’s storm systems. Contact us for assistance after any type of storm damage, common or uncommon, including:
- Power line damage: If a storm downed a power line that damaged your home, such as blown circuits and damaged electronics, your insurance company may pay for repairs. The city may also be responsible for these damages depending on the situation.
- Water damage: Rainstorms, tidal wave overflows, and flash floods could cause storm-related water damage in your home. Most homeowners’ insurance companies only cover water damage from storms and appliance issues, not floods. You may need separate insurance for flood coverage.
- Wind damage: Strong winds during a storm in Tampa, such as a hurricane or tornado, could cause significant damage to your home. It may rip away your roof, shutters, and doors. You may be able to recover compensation for wind damage to every part of your home and landscape.
- Hail damage: A hailstorm can drop thousands of dangerous balls of ice onto your home, property, and vehicles. This unforeseen event can cause significant property damage, including breaking windows, denting your car, and damaging your roof.
- Roof damage: The roof can suffer damages such as lost shingles, holes, leaks, or a weakened structure in any type of storm. You may be eligible for a new roof as well as compensation for related property damage, such as water damage from a leak, after a storm in Tampa.
