Hurricane Insurance Claim FAQ
If you have any questions regarding how your insurance coverage protects you from the damage caused by a hurricane, contact my firm right away. At Diamond Law, P.A., you will find a Florida hurricane insurance lawyer who understands the complexities of insurance law, as well as hurricane damages and loss claims and I may be able to help you understand how your policy should protect you. Some of the frequently asked questions I am asked include:
Q. If my home is damaged in a hurricane, what should I do?
A. The first thing you need to do is to contact your insurance company or insurance agent. Insurance companies ensure different aspects of damage, for example, if your damage is primarily from floodwaters as opposed to winds your benefits may be affected. You should also have a contractor, engineer, or your own adjuster perform an estimate for repairs to the damages your home incurred.
Q. Will my insurance agent help me?
A. Your insurance agent may help but insurance agents will also aggressively protect their company's bottom line. It may be in your best interest to contact a qualified and professional attorney from my firm to aggressively protect your rights and best interests.
Q. If I have home insurance with one company and hurricane insurance with another company, do I have the same rights under both policies?
A. No. Each policy is different. Insurance law is complicated and you may need the attentive assistance of a knowledgeable lawyer from my accomplished firm to help you understand your rights and obligations. I will tirelessly fight to protect your rights and vigorously pursue the maximum level of benefits that you are entitled to.
Q. Am I entitled to receive an advance payment from my insurance company?
A. For the most part, you are not entitled to an advance payment. The majority of insurers will pay a living expense if a hurricane renders your home unlivable. In some cases, insurance companies will avoid paying living expenses by claiming that a property is livable in spite of a lack of electricity or plumbing. If this should happen, you need to contact me, Joshua, as soon as you possibly can to help you receive the living expenses that you are entitled to.
