What is a Property Damage Claim?
Every year, thousands of Floridians suffer financial losses as a result of storms, water damage, fires, windstorms or other causes. In many cases, the owners of homes and businesses are able to resolve their property damage claims in a timely and satisfactory manner. When your home or business sustains damage because of a storm, fire, water leak or other disaster, your insurance policy should cover the cost of repairs so that you can fix the damage as soon as possible. However, your insurance company might not agree to pay the claim in full. In some cases, the insurer may dispute the value of a property damage claim, take a long time to review the claim, question the validity of the claim or offer an inadequate settlement that does not cover the actual damages sustained. This prevents the individual from being able to make the necessary repairs needed to restore his or her property to its former state. In such an instance, you need an experienced attorney on your side to help you get the compensation you deserve from your insurer.
If you are dealing with a property damage claim and the insurance company is not cooperating like they should, you have options. With the help of a qualified attorney, you can fight your insurer for the benefits you need to cover the damage to your property.
