INSURANCE CLAIMS FOLLOWING STORM DAMAGE TO PROPERTY.
Personal injury and insurance claims lawyer explains “What to do after you suffer economic losses due to flooding or strong winds that damage your property and financial losses.”
Homeowners in South Florida are facing challenges dealing with insurance claims after historic floods. Even though the water is slowly receding, it is still deep in some parts of Broward County. Homeowners are struggling to replace damaged items and filing an insurance claim is only adding to their frustration. Many homeowners are tired and don’t want to deal with insurance companies. They are advised to seek help from consultants to navigate the claims process. Experts suggest homeowners document everything with pictures before beginning the cleanup and refrain from moving anything. Homeowners with flood insurance make up 70% of Broward County, but those without coverage can still receive help from the Federal Emergency Management Agency, although it may take some time.
