How a Hurricane Claim Attorney Can Help You
We have helped our clients recover millions of dollars from insurance companies. But unfortunately, even when you have a policy that should cover you during a hurricane, insurance companies may try to deny your claim or prevent you from recovering what you are rightfully owed. That is where we come in.
Filing Your Claim
Living in Rehoboth, the chances of experiencing a hurricane are less than if you lived in a state like Florida. Therefore, when a hurricane does hit, you could feel unprepared or unsure of how to move forward with the claims process.
Our team of property damage lawyers can file your insurance claim for you so that you do not have to worry about figuring out the process while you are trying to get your life back in order. Once your claim has been filed, we will continue to work on your behalf to ensure that the insurance company pays you the amount you are rightfully owed for the damage that took place.
Helping You Understand Your Policy
You might think your homeowner’s insurance will cover all the damage you suffer following a hurricane. However, there are often exceptions to what an insurance company will cover.
Standard hurricane insurance does not cover flooding. That does not mean it will not cover water or wind and rain damage. It just means that if you are the victim of a storm surge, then you will likely not be covered unless you purchased additional insurance.
Our lawyers can answer any questions about your policy and discuss your recovery options with you.

Common Types of Property Damage Caused by Hurricanes
Hurricanes can cause property damage in a variety of ways. Of course, some threats pose more significant risks than others, but the truth is, all hazards that result from a hurricane can cause severe damage.
Extreme winds are one of the most dangerous threats posed by hurricanes. Even tropical storms can destroy property and manufactured homes. Winds can cause damage to your:
In addition, extreme winds can knock over trees and poles, which can land on your property and cause serious damage.
All the damages caused by extreme winds should be recoverable under your insurance policy.
We will review your auto insurance policy if your car is damaged during a hurricane to see what you are covered for. If you have comprehensive coverage, then you should just need to pay a deductible to have all other damages taken care of.
Water Damage from Rain
If your home is damaged, whether by a falling tree or a piece of debris that breaks a window, you could suffer water damage from the rain pouring into your home. Once your home is compromised, it is nearly impossible to fix the problem while the storm continues to rage.
You will need to prove that water damage came from rain and that the storm damaged part of your house. If it is determined that your water damage resulted from flooding, you will likely not be covered.
Storm Surges and Inland Flooding
Storm surges and inland flooding are two of the most damaging threats to your property. But unfortunately, these hazards are often not covered by your homeowner’s or hurricane policy.
If you live in an area that could see significant storm surges or flooding because of a hurricane, it may be worth adding flood coverage to your policy to prevent you from paying more in the future.
