Protecting Your Rights and Interests Under the Applicable Florida Laws

After Hurricane Nicole, your insurance company may try to deny coverage for certain types of damage. Our lawyers can help ensure that you will be fully compensated for all of your covered losses. These may include:

  • Wind damage: Wind and hail can be devastating forces, leaving trails of broken roofs and windows in their wake. Fortunately, if you experience structural damage from a hurricane, your standard homeowner's insurance policy should cover the costs of repair.
  • Water damage: When it comes to a storm-related water damage claim, understanding the complexities of your home insurance policy is crucial. Certain types of damages, such as damage to a roof from a falling tree that caused rainwater to leak into a home, are usually eligible for coverage. However, flooding or storm surges are not typically included in standard homeowner’s insurance policies unless extra flood protection coverage has been purchased. With our legal team's understanding of the law and experience in this area, we can fight to ensure that all permissible water damage claims are approved for reimbursement by insurers.
  • Flood damage: If you are covered by flood insurance, then you may receive coverage to pay for water extraction and mold removal, as well as other potential repair costs. Damage related to flooding or storm surges must be specifically covered through flood insurance policies.
  • Fire damage: When a home is struck by lightning, experiences a gas leak, or is near fallen power lines, damaging fires are likely to occur. Smoke remediation and rebuilding any burned structures may be expensive. However, these costs will most likely be covered under a homeowner's insurance policy.

To safeguard your home and all of its belongings, your homeowner's insurance policy will usually provide comprehensive coverage for damage to the primary dwelling as well as any accompanying structures like garages, sheds, or fences. With this security in place from potential losses due to storms and other hazards, you can rest assured knowing that your property is fully protected.
