Florida Wind Damage Attorney Can Help You Get Insurance Benefits
Florida may be known for its white sands, blue waters, and mostly crystal clear skies, but when the storms and high winds come, so do millions of dollars in property damage. In 2020 the Insurance Information Institute reported that wind and hail accounted for 45.5% of all homeowner insurance claims filed. For example, the National Weather Service reports that Hurricane Irma in 2017 led to the ordering of over 6 million people to evacuate as a result of water damage, extensive tree and fence damage, and additional damage from storm damage and related damages from wind and rainfall.
When those homeowners sustain damages that are covered by their insurance policy, they should receive compensation in accordance with the terms of the policy. Otherwise, they may have a viable lawsuit to collect payments owed.
