Important Steps to Take When You File a Property Claim in Florida
Act quickly. In Florida, you have a limited amount of time to file a claim with your insurer. By not acting within the state’s statute of limitations, you run the risk of being unable to seek losses to cover the extent of your property’s damage.
The moment you recognize damage to your home, take photos and document evidence of your losses. Keep track of any receipts for repairs, hotel stays, and other storm-related losses.
Then, you should think about getting a free consultation from our legal team in Naples. A wind damage storm property claim lawyer can help you understand your next steps forward.
Wind Losses in Naples Can be Costly
Its proximity to the Gulf of Mexico makes Naples especially vulnerable to dangerous weather conditions. As the City of Naples notes, Naples residents are familiar with the impact of severe storms and hurricanes. For example, Tropical Storm Fay and Hurricane Irma especially damaged our community.
The Congressional Budget Office (CBO) estimated wind-related losses to create the following expenses and losses in the United States in 2019:
- Residential property losses: $34 billion
- Commercial property losses: $9 billion
- Public sector property losses: $12 billion
The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) notes that severe wind storms can seriously impact even the most well-prepared homes and properties. When Mother Nature compromises the integrity of your home, flooding, water impacts, and other impacts can wreak havoc on your home.
