Fighting for Your Home
The northern portion of Florida is known for all kinds of storms, which can cause significant property damage. The months of October through April are marked with “no name storms” that not only produce solid windstorms but frequently produce hail. Hail damage threatens the integrity of your roof and is generally covered under most insurance policies. However, insurance companies do everything possible to pay the least amount possible. If your insurance company is not paying what the policy states, you can reach our insurance lawyers, and we will fight for you and your home.
If you have been through a recent “no-name storm” or hail event, please call one of our hail damage lawyers, and we will discuss your case with you during a Free Consultation.
Please contact us for a FREE CONSULTATION with a hail damage lawyer at (813) 575-4100.
FAQs About Hail Damage Insurance Claims
How Much Does It Cost To Hire a Lawyer for My Hail Damage?
In most cases, hiring a hail damage lawyer when insurance isn’t paying what it should not cost you anything. After settling, we typically make the insurance company cover the litigation costs. However, every case is different, so reach out for a free consultation. We offer this type of fee structure for other insurance lawyer claims such as:
- Flood damage
- Hurricane damage
- and more
Does My Insurance Policy Cover Hail Damage?
The short answer is, “it depends.” Most homeowners have windstorm coverage in their standard insurance policies. While the language can vary somewhat, you are covered if a named storm causes damage to your home or business.
What Do I Do After a Storm?
When you hear a storm is coming, it’s important to have pictures taken of your home. This will help your insurance company see that the damage was caused by hail and the storm that passed through. Once it’s safe to do so, take pictures of the hail damage and send all before and after images to your insurance company.
How Long Do I Have To Make a Claim?
Almost every policy requires prompt reporting of your claim. There are statutory limits that require claims to be made within two years. However, if you have been through a named storm and know you have damage, you should contact your insurance company immediately.
Should I Use a Public Adjuster?
We always recommend you do your due diligence before working with a public adjuster. Public adjusters come out in throngs after severe storms and aren’t always looking out for your best interests. If you feel like your needs aren’t being met, contact an insurance lawyer that has experience with these claims.
