Dealing with wind damage to your home can be frustrating enough. But if the insurance company is refusing to recognize your claim or is creating unreasonable delays, the situation you are faced with can cause unnecessary stress in your life.
The insurance companies have a legal responsibility under FL § 627.7142 to provide fair treatment of those they insure. If you suspect you are being treated unfairly by your insurance company, you may have the right to take legal action beyond the wind damage property claim.

Types of Storm Damage From Wind in Fort Myers
Storm damage to your home can come from more than just the high winds created by a severe thunderstorm, tornado, hurricane, or tropical storm hitting Florida. Common types of damage are:
According to the National Hurricane Center, wind during a serious storm can exceed 100 miles per hour and have damaging effects for miles. High winds can easily rip off shingles or other objects that are attached to the roof, creating the possibility of water intrusion into the home.
Objects left outside during high winds can become a flying projectile that can cause destruction to anything in its path, including homes and vehicles.
Rain and Hail
Unfortunately, the wind isn’t the only cause for concern during a storm. Many times, hail and rain accompany the storm and exacerbate the losses caused by wind. Extensive damage can be caused by hail, and if the water is able to intrude into your home, it can cause mold and other types of water damage.
