St. Petersburg Hurricane Property Damage
Attorneys for Storm Damage Claims
One of the many reasons you live in St. Petersburg is the beautiful weather. Unfortunately, the Florida weather can often turn dangerous, bringing Hurricanes and Tropical Storms which can cause extensive property damage. Although you would like to think that your homeowners or property insurance company would be there for you after a hurricane or other weather event, you may find that your insurance company is more interested in its own profit than restoring your property.
After a hurricane or wind damage loss, property insurance companies have the obligation to restore your property to its pre-loss condition. Unfortunately, our experience over the past 20 years has shown that insurance companies will often deny or seriously underpay these claims. Many times, policy holders weren’t even aware of the coverages that were available to them under their insurance policy.
Hurricane Irma Claims
Hurricane Irma blew through Pinellas County with sustained hurricane force winds. These winds caused damage to roofs, exterior and interior walls, flooring, windows, and personal property. Even after the storm, Irma continued to cause damage due to extensive power outages and broken utility lines.
Your homeowner’s insurance company never hesitated to collect your insurance premium every month – why should you accept less than the full value of your damage claim?
Attorneys With Over 20 Years of Experience Fighting Insurance Companies.
If your insurance damage claim has been delayed, denied, or underpaid by your property insurance company, you need to level the playing field by hiring an experienced hurricane damage lawyer. The lawyers and other legal professionals at Williams Law, P.A. have handled thousands of insurance damage claims and know how to make the insurance company pay your claim.
Beware of your insurance company trying to deny or underpay your claim by using one of the following excuses:
- Claiming that your damage was caused by Flooding and not by Wind Storm.
- Claiming that your damage pre-existed the storm.
- Claiming that your damage was from neglect or your failure to maintain your property.
- Claiming that your damages do not meet your hurricane deductible.
Always check the specific language of your policy to determine whether any claimed exclusions apply to your claim. Do not be afraid to question the insurance company adjuster’s estimation of your damages, as these adjusters are paid by the insurance company.
