Hurricane Michael Property Damage Claims Attorneys
Experienced disaster recovery team has track record of successfully recovering just compensation
When the news hit that Hurricane Michael was headed for the Florida Panhandle in October 2018, many residents did not have enough time to prepare before the storm was quickly upgraded to a Category 4 hurricane. Michael’s damaging winds caused power outages to over one million customers and heavy rain caused flash flooding all along the East Coast, from the Carolinas to New Jersey. Florida residents experienced damage to homes, boats, cars, businesses, and belongings. Filing a claim for hurricane property damage from insurance companies can be an uphill battle. The experienced disaster recovery team at Ged Lawyers, LLP has a track record of successfully recovering compensation for Florida residents who have sustained hurricane property damage.
Hurricane damage can be extensive – know your policy
Hurricane Michael left a path of destruction in its wake, from storm surge flooding, inland flooding, wind damage, heavy rain, and downed power lines. When filing a hurricane property damage claim, it is important to understand your insurance policy as well as the cause of the damage. If you suffered water damage from Hurricane Michael due to the rapid-moving rainfall and flooding, then the damage would be covered under flood insurance. If the property damage is a result of storm surge, then the damage would be covered under your standard homeowners insurance. In some situations, it may be necessary to file multiple insurance claims. If Hurricane Michael caused damage to your car and your home, then you are required to file a claim under your automobile insurance policy as well as your homeowners insurance policy.
Time limits for filing a claim for hurricane property damage
Every state has legal time limits for filing a claim in civil court. This is known as the statute of limitations. In Florida, the statute of limitations for filing a hurricane property damage claim is four years from the time the damage occurred. If your claim is not filed in the court system within that four-year timeframe, your case will be dismissed and you will have lost your opportunity to recover compensation for the property damage from Hurricane Michael.
