Hurricane Damage Attorneys – Wind and Storm Claims Assistance

South Florida residents know it is wise to monitor current weather patterns and storm formations. The Sunshine State is surrounded by water on three sides, and South Florida is a veritable finger extending into a hurricane hotspot. Hurricanes often produce powerful winds that can cause considerable damage. Flying debris and storm surge adds to an even graver situation. Making sure your valuable property is protected with adequate insurance coverage is prudent.

Problems can arise when you encounter delays, inadequate damage assessments, or disputes about your damage claim. Roller Rubinstein has Florida Property Damage Lawyers who can help you get what you deserve from your insurance company after hurricanes strike.

Not All Insurance Policies Are Equal

Insurance policies are designed to cover specific losses. Their provisions define what is covered and what is not when a hurricane or other severe storm strikes. Understanding these nuances is critical when you have a hurricane damage claim.

Homeowners’ Coverage

Homeowners’ policies can vary between companies. For example, all water damage is not treated the same in insurance policies. The general rule in most homeowners’ property insurance is that damage caused by water from above is usually covered. Damage from water that rises from below is usually not covered. Also, some homeowners’ insurance policies cover wind damage only at a certain speed. Wind over a certain speed is considered a hurricane and requires a specific hurricane insurance policy.

Hurricane Coverage

Optional hurricane insurance covers wind and related water damage, not flooding. It has a similar provision that causes it to kick in when winds reach a specified speed. Property damage from flying debris is also typically covered. This can include:

  • Roof damage
  • Downed trees and resulting damage
  • Damaged siding
  • Broken windows
  • Damage from falling water through a broken roof
  • Food spoilage and other damages from extended power outage
  • Hurricane damage to your storage shed, detached garage, or fence

Flood Damage

Flood insurance is specific protection when you incur damage from water that comes from off your property – rising flood waters or storm surges. Some lenders require property buyers to have flood insurance, especially if they are in designated flood zones.
