Tallahassee Hurricane & Storm Damage Claim Attorneys
The devastation to homes and businesses caused the high winds and storm surge brought by hurricanes and tropical storms can be financially crippling. Luckily, homeowners and business insurance usually cover property damage losses caused by hurricanes and tropical storms. However, making an insurance claim for property damage after a severe storm can be both time consuming and confusion. Further, insurance companies and their adjusters are highly-trained in making sure the insurer pays the absolute minimum on these claims. Naturally, disputes between home and business owners and insurance companies are common with property damage claims. The following are some issues encountered by home and business owners in Tallahassee when dealing with their insurance companies during a property damage claim:
- Denial of the claim for an uncovered event
- Undervaluing claimed losses
- Partially denying claims that should be fully covered
- Delaying by asking for additional unnecessary paperwork or evidence
- Not returning calls or emails
- Requiring the homeowner or business owner to jump through unnecessary hoops to stall the claims process
- Offering settlements contingent on signing a “full” release when there should be supplemental payments
