Florida Hurricane Insurance Claims Lawyer
Hurricanes and major windstorms can destroy homes and devastate communities within hours, leaving people without water or power and closing down businesses. Going through a hurricane is a traumatic experience, and losing your home or business can make you feel lost, angry, and hopeless. But the problems don’t stop there.
After a hurricane, many homeowners look at their insurance policies for the first time and find out their insurance policies won’t cover all the losses they sustained. Most homeowners don’t have flood insurance, usually because they were never required to buy. You’re required to buy flood insurance if you live in a flood zone on FEMA’s flood map, but hurricanes often damage areas that aren’t designated as flood zones. And due to the anti-concurrent causation clause, your homeowners insurance won’t even pay for wind damage if it occurred along with an event that’s excluded in the policy, such as flooding.
