A hurricane is one of the most damaging, natural forces your home can face. As the average hurricane can generate winds of 74 mph or greater with a variety of lightning, hail and other potential causes for concern, damages to homes are often significant after a hurricane. Knowing what to do next and how to proceed with your insurance policy often requires working with a lawyer after a hurricane.
Working With a Lawyer To File Your Claim
Get a consultation from a lawyer after your home has been damaged by a hurricane to help make an insurance claim so you can rebuild your home. An insurance claims lawyer can help you gather evidence for your insurance claim. A lawyer will also be able to help you examine your current insurance policy and get the maximum amount of coverage or support that you could be entitled to.
Settling with an insurance company without a lawyer could result in the insurance company giving you a lowball settlement amount, improperly denying your claim, or delaying inappropriately. Working with the right lawyer can make sure that you have an advocate on your side to help you manage costs associated with the hurricane and to recoup expenses that could help you improve the condition of your home over time.
A lawyer will work in conjunction with the public adjuster that will manage claims on behalf of policyholders. Negotiating with your insurance company and one of these officials requires an advocate with experience in managing hurricane claims.
