If a hurricane, tropical storm, burst pipe, or house fire caused damage to your Tampa home, your homeowner’s insurance coverage should compensate you for your losses. However, the insurance company may deny, delay, or undervalue your damages in an attempt to limit their financial losses.
A property claim lawyer from the Law Offices of Anidjar & Levine can help you hold your insurance company accountable. We fight for your right to recover compensation for the damage to your home and its contents.

Common Types of Tampa Property Claims We Handle
The Law Offices of Anidjar & Levine assists our Tampa clients with all types of property claims and insurance company disputes, including those caused by:
- Tropical storms
- Downed trees
- High winds
- Ruptured pipes
- Sewer blockages
- Other accidental or uncontrollable damage
Insurance companies successfully pay out on property claims every day but, on occasion, they may fail to meet their legal obligations. Examples of insurance companies dealing in bad faith include:
- Wrongfully denying your claim
- Refusing to investigate your claim
- Delaying payment on your claim
- Making misleading or false statements to you
- Undervaluing your claim
Insurers may offer you an unacceptably low settlement or ask you to sign a release in exchange for a partial payment. These actions may be illegal, depending on the terms of your policy.
We will fight to hold your insurance company accountable for covering your losses.
Filing a Tampa Property Claim
We begin by evaluating your policy and establishing the insurance company’s obligations. Next, we obtain the information necessary to document your damages.
We may need less information than you expect. Depending on the details of your claim and the nature of your losses, we typically require the following information:
- A copy of your homeowner’s insurance policy
- Contact information for your insurer
- Photos or video of your home prior to the damage
- Photos or video of the damages to your home
- Estimates for damage repair
- A list of damaged or destroyed items
- Receipts for items you already replaced
- Receipts for securing your home
- Receipts for damage remediation
The last step before submitting your claim to the insurance company is to calculate the full value of your damages.
Identifying Damages & Calculating Your Tampa Property Claim Value
Our legal team will identify all damages covered by your insurance policy and use those to calculate the total value of your claim. Depending on your coverage, you may be entitled to recover compensation for some or all of the following damages:
- Repair or replacement of your home
- Repair or replacement of garages, workshops, and other structures
- Replacement of damaged contents
- Property cleanup and debris removal
- Alternative accommodations and meals
- Other out-of-pocket expenses
Once our team establishes your claim’s value, we will prepare to submit it to the insurance company on your behalf.
