Fighting Over the Meaning of Structural Damage
The key issue in a sinkhole damage insurance claim is to be able to prove that you have a sinkhole loss or damage to your property that is structural in nature as a result of sinkhole activity.
Insurance companies will often argue that the damage caused by the sinkhole activity is merely cosmetic, seeking to narrow the scope of “structural damage” to suit their ends. If they are able to keep the definition very limited, it becomes easier to deny claims or settle claims cheaply by only offering compensation for cosmetic damage.
The true definition of structural damage is any damage caused to the structure by sinkhole activity. We will fight aggressively on your behalf to make sure you reap the full benefits of your insurance policy.
