Flood Damage Claims Attorney
Handling Flood Damage Insurance Claims after Hurricane Michael
The rain and storm surge from Hurricane Michael devastated the Panama City area and the Florida coast. If you live in a hurricane-prone area, you should have flood insurance provided by FEMA. While your homeowner’s or property insurance policies should cover wind damage and damage from water that comes in from above, these policies will not cover flooding. You will need to file a separate claim with your FEMA policy for flood damage.
If you are struggling with a flood damage claim, you should not wait any longer to call the Hurricane Michael disaster recovery attorneys at Ged Lawyers, LLP. We handle all types of hurricane-related insurance claims, and we know how the FEMA claims process works. Contact our office for your free case evaluation.
Costly Flood Damage
Floodwaters do not discriminate when it comes to causing serious damage. Our legal team handles flood claims involving:
- Multi-residence properties
- Commercial properties
- Rental properties
- Resorts and hotels
- Motor vehicles
All of the above can sustain serious destruction due to floodwaters, and mold and other toxins can develop in the aftermath of a flood. Flooding can also destroy much of your personal property, including electronics, rugs, appliances, furniture, and more.
Often, flood-damaged homes need major renovations. Water-soaked floors and walls must be torn out and replaced, ensuring complete mold removal. Flood-damaged personal property often needs to be replaced. The cost of repairs and replacements can be extensive, and most property owners are counting on their insurance payments to complete the necessary repairs.
Helping with Insurance Complications
When you file a claim with your FEMA flood insurance policy and provide proof of the damage that occurred, you should expect to receive enough payment to cover the repairs. Unfortunately, many claims do not get resolved this easily. Instead, people with flood damage experience many complications with the insurance process.
Insurance adjusters can make the claims process challenging, and many settlement offers are far less than you need to repair your home or business. Many people accept the offer, assuming that is their only option. However, always remember that an experienced insurance claims attorney can negotiate with the adjuster and provide evidence of the full settlement you deserve.
Our lawyers know the tactics that insurance companies use to minimize claim payments. Even if you have a valid claim, it can be difficult to obtain the full value without the right representation. After going through a hurricane, the last thing you need is a run-around from your insurer. You should never hesitate to seek help from a disaster relief attorney.
