Wind and Rain Damage
Wind and rain can damage your Hollywood home thanks to hurricanes and other storms. The serious storms the South Florida area experiences can cause siding and roofing to be torn from homes and can also cause broken windows, fallen trees, and other damage. After a serious storm in the area, it’s not unusual to see trees crashed into homes and serious structural damage impacting the foundation of some homes. Trailers can end up completely moved or flipped. The rain that comes with storms in South Florida can cause flooding and water damage, as well as mold.Homeowners Insurance and Wind and Rain Damage
Wind and rain damage can wreak havoc with the outside of your home and can even destroy your property, to the point where significant portions need to be repaired or rebuilt. If windows or doors are compromised or if projectiles hit your home or a tree falls, the interior of your home and your property can be damaged. Wind and rain can also cause damage to anything on your property, including cars, boats, outdoor lighting, and any property outside.
Your homeowners insurance policy may protect you in the event of a serious storm and some Florida residents get additional protection through wind-driven rain coverage and other additional coverage. Even if you have been paying your premiums and have insurance in place, however, filing a claim can be challenging, which is why many homeowners turn to Hollywood wind and rain damage attorneys.How Can a Hollywood Wind and Rain Damage Attorney Help?
A property damage attorney with experience in wind and rain damage cases can help you by representing you with your insurance company. While you can make a claim with your insurance company without working with an attorney, insurance companies want to settle claims inexpensively and quickly. You may be offered less than you need to repair your home and replace your property. Your insurance company may also use complex-sounding terms or even suggest some damage cannot be covered.
A Hollywood property damage attorney with experience in wind and rain damage claims can review your policy and can negotiate with your insurer so you get a fair recovery. This way, you don’t have to determine on your own how much the property damage may be worth and how much you qualify for. With an attorney, you can seek the fairest possible claim amount so more of the damage is covered.
Remember: an insurance company is answerable to their shareholders, not to you. Your attorney, however, works for your best interests. He or she is committed to ensuring you get the best possible chance at a claim amount you deserve.Contact Flaxman Law Group
