Hurricane Property Damage

 

Between 1851 and 2015, Florida endured 114 hurricanes, including 37 major hurricanes. These powerful storms rip roofs off of homes, send massive waves onto the coastline, and hurl blunt objects through the air with enough force to penetrate a telephone pole. Hurricane property damage is the price we pay for countless days of sunny, summery weather.

At Williams Law, P.A., we understand the difficulties of securing fair insurance coverage after a serious tropical storm or hurricane. Insurance companies constantly search for reasons to deny, delay, and lower their claims payouts. In the meantime, homeowners must move in with family members or stay in a hotel as they try to rebuild their lives. If you’re struggling to receive fair coverage for hurricane property damage, we will use every resource we have to protect your interests. You paid the premiums – you deserve a fair payout.

Insurance Coverage and Hurricane Damage in Florida

Homeowner’s insurance coverage varies widely. Most policies cover general storm damage from wind, hail, and lightning. Flood insurance is usually separate. Depending on the insurer, a standard policy may also exclude hurricane-related wind damage or offer coverage for a separate and more expensive deductible.

If you live in an area prone to hurricane damage (i.e., anywhere around St. Petersburg), we encourage you to look carefully at your insurance coverage to determine what is and is not covered. Insurance policies do not always offer straightforward terms, especially regarding the nuances of storm damage.
