Hurricane coverage may include:
Securing the property
Unfortunately, stories of insurance carriers refusing to cover losses after major disaster events like hurricanes are not uncommon. Carriers may:
- Deny that your policy covers your losses
- Delay your claim unnecessarily
- Deny your claim outright without reasonable explanation
- Offer a lowball settlement
- Allege coverage lapses
- Fail to investigate your claim altogether
We can protect your rights. Our team can:
- Talk to the insurance company for you
- Front the costs necessary to get your life back on track
- Negotiate a settlement
- Litigate your case at trial, if necessary
