Hurricanes can have a devastating impact on the property you worked so hard to build into a home. In a matter of hours, your safe living space can be damaged or become a total loss, thrusting you, as a homeowner, into a world of uncertainty.

Many homeowners believe their homeowners policy will fully cover their devastating loss. Unfortunately, however, homeowners who suffer a loss find themselves fighting an uphill battle against big insurance companies far too often.

At The Rain Law Firm, our experienced property insurance claim attorneys understand the tactics that insurance companies use to avoid responsibility. As a Hollywood, Florida, firm that represents aggrieved property owners nationwide, our legal team has seen more than its share of devastation. We fight hard for homeowners and have won them the financial compensation they deserve through many hurricane seasons. We firmly believe it would be fundamentally unfair for insurance companies to deny your good faith claim when you've been diligently making your high premium insurance payments for years.

Common Insurance Company Tactics

Floridians understand that no matter how well prepared you are, these powerful storms are likely to damage your property. It's important to thoroughly document all losses once the danger has passed. Big insurance may try to protect its bottom line by employing some of these tactics:

  • Denying that you have coverage
  • Denying your claim by saying severe weather is not covered
  • Denying portions of your losses
  • Dragging its feet on payment to put you in a vulnerable position
  • Misleading you about the process or coverage
  • Leveraging your situation and forcing you to settle for less
  • Underestimating damage and reconstruction costs
  • Attempting to deny future claims

It's important for property owners to keep in mind that an insurance company's primary goal is to turn a profit. Protecting its bottom line by denying or underpaying your claim furthers that selfish goal. At the end of the day, your loss is just red ink in its ledger.
