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.
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. We will investigate and document your losses and compel the insurance company to provide the coverage you pay for.
Common tactics that insurers use to minimize their financial losses include:
- Denying you have valid coverage in force
- Denying your policy covers your damages
- Denying all or part of your claim outright
- Delaying or refusing to send an adjuster out
- Undervaluing your claim
- Advising you against talking to a property claim lawyer
- Making false or misleading statements
- Marking partial payments as “paid in full”
- Asking 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. In some cases, they may make you a very low offer of settlement with the promise of a quick payout.
When you trust our hurricane property claim lawyers in Orlando to help you, we will handle every aspect of your claim. We will document and submit your claim to the insurance company with a settlement demand and push for a quick and fair resolution.

If necessary, we can file legal action to compel the insurance company to act on your claim and deal in good faith.
Insurers impose strict deadlines for filing your claim. You also have a limited time to file legal action under the Florida statute of limitations. To preserve your right to recover compensation for your hurricane damage, contact the Law Offices of Anidjar & Levine today: 1-800-747-3733.
Determining the Value of Your Orlando Hurricane Damage Claim

Your claim may include the following:
- The cost to repair your home
- The cost to repair secondary structures, such as a garage or guest house
- The cost to repair or replace fences, swimming pools, etc.
- The value of lost contents and personal property
- Site cleanup and haul-off

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 less your deductible and any other specifically excluded items.
