When natural disaster strikes, homeowners who sustained property damage and loss may feel like they don’t know where to turn.
While a call to your insurance provider may be the first thing you do, you might want to consider what else you might need to do to protect yourself and receive the compensation you deserve under your insurance policy.
Homeowners and renters dutifully pay their insurance every year; but unfortunately that isn’t enough to ensure that every insurance company will fully honor their policy and act in their best interest.
Fortunately, you can make insurance companies live up to their obligations by hiring an attorney.
By seeking legal counsel, you will have someone experienced with the insurance claims process on your side.
Insurance policies are long, complicated legal documents. Did you sit down and read every word of your policy?
Don’t worry, almost no one does that. But when you hire an attorney to assist you with your legal claim, they will take the time to carefully review each clause of your policy, which will equip them to handle negotiations with insurance adjusters who may seek to avoid the company’s responsibilities under the policy.
Your attorney can also review the claims process to ensure that the insurance company kept up their end of the responsibility to investigate the damaged property in a timely manner.
At times like these, insurance representatives may be overwhelmed with work. However, the insurance company must ensure that they have enough competent staff to help all of their policy holders in a thorough and professional manner.
The cost of hiring an insurance claim attorney might not be as much as you think. And, it might be well worth it if they can help you receive thousands of dollars in coverage for extensive storm, flood or wind damage to your Florida home after this devastating hurricane season.
