Florida is often called a slice of paradise: known for its warm tropical oceans and sandy beaches...but it's also known for its severe weather! And sooner or later, that weather may leave you dealing with water damage:
Whether it's a hurricane, a flood, or maybe a less cataclysmic event, like a burst pipe, ac or water heater malfunction, water damage is always inconvenient and often costly.
And in Florida, no property is immune:
and office buildings
are all vulnerable.
Your insurance coverage depends on the source of the damage of course.
But getting your insurance company to do the right thing can be as challenging as the clean up. They are not all bad, but don't be surprised if you are in for a fight.
Aside from outright denying you claim insurance companies may also:
ignore your calls and emails
fail to investigate your claim
suggest the damage was pre-existing and not covered
send out adjusters who underestimate your damage
make low ball offers to settle.
or accuse you of fraud!
It's not uncommon for an insurance company to sit on your claim until they hear from your lawyer.
So call an experienced South Florida claims attorney who is ready to help get you the settlement you deserve.
