HURRICANE DAMAGE AND INSURANCE CLAIMS
Hurricane season spans several months, from June to November. Thus, Florida residents know the effects that a hurricane can have on their property and the possible chances of suffering bodily injury and damages from fallen trees, flying debris, and electrocution. During a hurricane, high winds can cause damage to your roof, flood your floors, and burnout your electrical connection. After a hurricane has left you with damages and losses, you will need to contact a public adjuster as soon as possible and let them know. But what comes next? How long before your insurance provider compensates you for the cost of repairing damaged property, replace damaged goods, or treat any injuries incurred by a hurricane. In Miami, the Perazzo Law Firm Insurance claims attorneys know that it may sometimes be difficult to deal with situations when seeking retribution from insurance providers for hurricane damages and losses. Most often than not, an insurance provider will seek to underpay for the victims. The Perazzo Law Firm urges that those that suffer damages or losses due to a hurricane, contact our Miami or North Miami Beach offices ONLINE
and talk to one of our expert insurance claims attorneys for sound advice and their best possible service.

COMMON HURRICANE DAMAGE TO PROPERTY
As Hurricane Dorian idles over the Bahamas, remnants of Katrina remind Floridians of the wrath with which nature can punish humanity and devastate their property. Strong winds topping out at over 150 mph can easily blow the roof off a house, topple trees, and cause blackouts as massive amounts of rain fall can flood streets and make their way into homes. With the devastation comes the aftermath, which is replacing, repairing, and paying heavily for it all. Some of the most common damage to homes and property include:
- Broken windows from flying debris
- Leaky roofs
- Torn shingles
- Cracked ceilings
- Flooded floors and basements
- Electrical shortages
- Damaged vehicles
- Ruined furnishings and appliances
- Personal Injuries
- and more...

PROPERTY DAMAGE CLAIMS
An insurance provider is expected to compensate their clients in the event that a hurricane or other natural disaster leads to property damage. However, insurance providers may sometimes deny the damage victim's claim. In Miami, the Perazzo Law Firm recommends seeking the support of a public adjuster to help make sure you maximize the property damage claim and prevent the insurance company's adjuster from paying less than the true value. For added protection, an insurance claims lawyer will further guarantee the claimant receives just compensation and will handle pre-suit claims, civil remedy notices, litigate in a court of law, and many more legal formalities which may overwhelm the victims of property damage from a hurricane or other natural disaster.
THE ROLE OF A PUBLIC ADJUSTER
In Miami, the Perazzo Law Firm highly recommends hiring a trusted public adjuster to handle your insurance claim from property damage from a hurricane or other natural disaster. An experienced public adjuster will help estimate the true value of the damages and the costs to repair, replace, and remove and damaged property. A public adjuster will also calculate labor and foresee any future consequences of the present damages. Public adjusters, like insurance claims lawyers, can legally represent the insured in an insurance claim for property damage. Public adjusters will charge 10% of the damage claim for the first year and 20% for the years that follow with a three year statute of limitations. If the public adjuster is unable to settle with the insurance provider, then the claimant will not be liable for payment to the adjuster. In this case, you may need or wish to hire an experienced and professional insurance claims attorney to handle the compensation claim for the damages incurred from a hurricane or natural disaster. In the event that the insurance claims attorney litigates the claim and the claimant is awarded a settlement, the public adjuster will be legally obliged to receive a percentage of the awarded amount. Thus, it is in the adjuster's best interest for the claimant to hire an experienced and highly professional insurance claims lawyer.
THE ROLE OF A PROPERTY DAMAGE INSURANCE CLAIMS ATTORNEY
In Miami, the Perazzo Law Firm's staff of insurance claims lawyers dedicated to property damages and losses, will litigate in favor of their client in order to obtain the full value of their claim from property damages resulting from a hurricane or other natural disaster. In some cases, an insurance provider may act unjustly by undervaluing the claim, in other words, offer a settlement that is below the actual value of the damages. An insurance provider may also fail to uphold contractual obligations and thus the claimant may have the legal grounds to file a lawsuit through an insurance claims attorney to dispute the claim in a Florida court of law. The Perazzo Law Firm will not charge the claimant any legal fees once the claim is settled as the insurance provider is liable for the fees incurred from the property damage insurance claim.
