The Costly Damage of Strong Winds in Middleton, MA
Heavy winds can cause severe damage and leave homes in devastation. According to NOAA Office for Coastal Management data, weather and climate disasters caused billions of dollars in damages in 2021 alone.
While every home will be affected differently, wind-related property damage can be caused by:
- Wind speeds
- Flying debris
- Power lines
- Uprooted trees
- Falling branches
If your home was damaged by a weather or climate event, our Middleton lawyers will help you recover. While you focus on taking care of your family, our legal team will get to work building your insurance claim. You can leave the hard work and legal and insurance jargon to us because we never stop fighting for the clients we represent.
Our Wind Damage Attorney Can Help You Catalog Your Property Damage
Whether your roof was damaged or destroyed or your home sustained more serious damage, it can be difficult to fully assess the damage on your own. It can also be emotionally charged, making it even more difficult to objectively assess your property.
To ensure you obtain the monetary recovery you need and are entitled to, we recommend:
- Taking photos of your property from various angles
- Obtaining any available “before” photos of your home
- Compiling all relevant receipts, bills, and estimates
- Ensuring your damages are properly assessed
Repairing your property is a daunting task. Getting the finances to do so from your insurer can be an even more stressful and overwhelming process. As a homeowner, our law firm is committed to helping you recover the compensation your policy entitles you to receive. Leave the insurance company and the recovery process to us. We never stop going to bat for you.

- Misrepresenting your policy
