Determining The Value Of Your Orlando Hurricane Damage Claim

Once we establish which losses your policy covers, we will detail all your damages and document every aspect of your claim. This helps ensure the best possible resolution and a fair settlement.

Your claim may include the following losses:

  • The cost to repair your home
  • The cost to repair secondary structures, such as a garage or guesthouse
  • The cost to repair or replace fences, swimming pools, etc.
  • The value of lost contents and personal property
  • Site cleanup and haul-off
  • Water and mold remediation
  • Expenses for boarding up and securing your property
  • Expenses for preventing additional damage
  • Hotel, meal, and transportation costs if your home is not livable

If your home cannot be repaired, we will submit a replacement cost claim. Based on your coverage, this typically includes the full value of your policy, save your deductible and any other specifically excluded items.

Holding The Insurance Company Accountable For Your Hurricane Damage Claim

Your insurance policy is a legal agreement between you and your insurer. It lays out the coverage you get in exchange for the policy premium. Despite paying your premium on time year after year, the insurance company may wrongfully refuse to honor its side of the obligation. It might blame you for some of the losses or claim that the policy does not cover your kind of loss.

The Orlando hurricane property claim lawyers from the Law Offices of Anidjar & Levine will interpret the legal language of your policy and spell out what is covered. Sometimes, an insurance company knows it is liable but still refuses to pay a valid claim until forced to do so. Therefore, we will investigate and document your losses and compel the insurance company to provide the coverage you deserve.

You May Run Into Issues When Making A Claim

You may experience issues when dealing with your insurance provider. After making a claim, insurers may try to:

  • Deny you have valid coverage in force
  • Deny your policy covers your damages
  • Deny all or part of your claim outright
  • Delay or refusing to send an adjuster out
  • Undervalue your claim
  • Advise you against talking to a property claim lawyer
  • Make false or misleading statements
  • Mark partial payments as “paid in full”
  • Ask you to sign a release of future liability

The insurer may request a recorded statement from you and later use portions of your statement as grounds for denying your claim. However, if the claims adjuster or someone else from the insurance company asks you to give a recorded statement, you could have refer them to your attorney instead.

In some cases, the insurer makes a lowball settlement offer with the promise of a quick payout. Insurance companies and lawyers check their jury verdict databases to find out how much a jury would award in a claim like yours. That number is the true value of your claim. Our hurricane property claim lawyers in Orlando also have access to those databases and can counter with the evidence needed to demand a settlement that adequately compensates you for the damage you sustained.

What To Do After A Hurricane

In the immediate aftermath of a hurricane, you may feel overwhelmed and without an idea of how to start addressing the damage. First, you should notify your insurer immediately so it can take steps to protect your home from further damage. Otherwise, it might say that some of the damage is your fault.

Here are a few steps you can take that may help when it comes time to file a claim.

Prioritize Your Health And Safety

If you or a loved one was hurt during the hurricane, seek medical attention immediately. Nothing is more important than your health, and you do not want to incur further losses as a result of an injury.

Document The Damage

After you have tended to any medical needs, you can begin documenting the damage done to your home.

If your home is not safe to enter due to debris and unstable structures, wait for the fire department to assess your situation. If your home is safe to re-enter, begin taking pictures of any visible damage. You may also take pictures of your personal belongings that were destroyed, as your insurance policy may provide coverage for these losses.

Refrain From Posting On Social Media

Whenever you make an insurance claim, you should safeguard against any opportunity the insurer has to deny or undervalue your losses. This includes posting pictures and accounts of your experience on social media.

Do not discuss the details of your property damage with anyone. A hurricane damage claim lawyer with our firm can handle the communications with the insurer.

  • “Anidjar and Levine, along with their amazing colleague Howard Myones, are the best! My wife and I lost our home to a catastrophic fire just before Christmas last year and we were helpless. The insurance carrier refused to take our claim seriously until this outstanding law firm got involved. Mr. Myones worked our case tirelessly for nearly 8 months and we finally received a settlement that will help my wife and I get back in our home. We have a long way until we rebuild, but it would have never been possible without the firm of Anidjar and Levine and the incredible and dedicated work of Howard Myones. I strongly urge anyone seeking legal services to give this firm a call. You will not regret it.”     Jeffrey G.
