Florida Flood Insurance Claim Attorney
Payment for Flood Damage
At first glance, getting an
insurance claim paid for flood damage may appear to be straightforward. You see your business
or home partially or fully in ruins and the devastation caused by the
water is obvious. There are a multitude of ways in which a flood can occur
and, unfortunately, a very limited way that a "flood" is legally
defined. In Florida, homeowner's insurance does not normally cover
flood damage even though property loss caused by water damage, such as
from broken pipe is commonly protected. The loss you have suffered is
plain, but getting your insurance company to settle your claim frequently

Does your insurance policy cover floods?
Sometimes, it is possible to show that damage to your property was brought
about by water covered under your existing general insurance policy, even
when it does not include flood insurance. Your insurance company may state
that the damage you sustained was from a flood when in fact it was not.
It is vital as well to be able to show the full loss you have suffered.
This can include your major appliances, structural damage to your home
or company, the need to replace carpeting and walls,
mold handling and many other items. A committed lawyer from the firm can provide
a free case evaluation so that you understand what you may be due and
the legal actions that can be taken to protect you. Your damages are real
and you deserve strong legal representation for your insurance claim.
