We also have a limited time to file a lawsuit, should that become necessary to compel the insurer to settle your claim fairly. We will make sure we file your claim and/or lawsuit within the state-imposed deadlines.
Establishing the Value of Your Miami Hurricane Property Claim
To determine the value of your Miami hurricane claim, our legal team will identify the damages to your home and property. We will document your losses carefully to ensure we submit a well-supported demand to the insurance company.

If your home was a total loss, we will submit your claim for the limits of your coverage. We will also take into consideration your deductible and any other items you cannot legally claim under the terms of your policy.
