A fire in your home or business can have a devastating impact on your health, finances, and personal property. A fire can directly destroy everything in its path, but it can also cause secondary damage. When the fire reaches flammable materials, it can cause an explosion which causes blown-out windows, damage to the foundation or structure of your home, and more. Fire damage can ruin your electrical systems and all major systems of your home. Eventually, it can consume the entire building. If anyone is in the home, it can cause burns and scarring if any direct contact with flames happens.
Smoke, too, can cause devastating damage to your property. Even if a fire is contained and only affects part of a room, smoke can cause discoloration and damage to walls and ceilings. It can interfere with electronics, so the affected items can be replaced.
Even the process of putting out a fire can cause extensive damage, especially if firefighters need to use axes to access areas. The chemicals used in putting out a fire can cause further damage to surfaces and electronics, too.When Should I Call a Smoke and Fire Damage Claims Attorney in Hollywood?
After a fire, there may be no way to recover a property that has been consumed by flames. However, some options allow you to seek insurance money for covered fire and smoke damage. Seeking a fair amount means you can replace those items which are replaceable and get quality repairs or replacement for your home.
It is important not to underestimate the costs of smoke and fire damage. You will likely need inspectors to determine whether there is damage to any underlying structures of your home, including damage you cannot see. You may need to replace clothing, jewelry, electronics, drywall, and more. If your home needs foundation work, plumbing repairs, or other work, this can be expensive because your systems, if they are older, may need to be upgraded at the same time as they are repaired. It may not be possible to repair a damaged part of a major electrical system, for example, without updating the electrical panel.
Smoke and fire damage can make your home unusable for some time. You may need to stay in a hotel or accommodations for an extended time, which can be costly.
You have paid for homeowner’s insurance for a long time, but when it comes time to make a claim, your insurer will want to resolve your claim quickly and inexpensively, which may not cover all the losses you have suffered. For this reason, if you have suffered smoke and fire damage at your home, contact a property damage attorney in Hollywood. An attorney will work for your best interests so you don't have to overpay out of your savings.Contact a Smoke and Fire Damage Claims Attorney in Hollywood
