Hurricane season is here, and residents of Florida may be remembering last year's hurricane season that caused major damage in the state. While people can prepare for hurricanes through the use of hurricane shutters, by boarding up their doors and windows and by placing sandbags around their property, these massive storms can easily destroy a person's home.
The aftermath of a hurricane can be dramatic, with some people losing their homes and possessions. When this happens, a person might want to submit a home or commercial property insurance claim. However, in the end insurance companies are looking to protect their bottom line. They may offer the policyholder a settlement that is too low to cover all the damages the policyholder suffered or they may deny a policyholder's claim altogether. This can be very distressing for property owners who are just trying to get back on their feet after losing everything in a hurricane.
When this happens, property owners may want to seek legal advice. At Greenberg Stone & Urbano, we aim to secure for our clients the full compensation they are entitled to. For example, we have assisted clients whose insurance company is claiming that our client's specific hurricane damage is not covered by their policy. We have worked to enforce these policies on behalf of our clients. Sometimes an insurer gives a person a policy that does not cover hurricane damage, when it actually should. When this happens to our clients, we assist them in taking action to hold the insurer responsible for their error.
Homeowners and business owners whose property was damaged or destroyed in a hurricane deserve to receive an appropriate amount of compensation from their insurer. When insurers try to skirt around their obligations, it is important to hold them accountable. We aim to make sure this happens. Our home and commercial property insurance claim webpage may be useful to those who want to learn more about how an attorney can be of assistance in such situations.
