Florida Flood Damage Claims
Among the most common natural disasters in Florida is flooding. According to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), on average, an inch of water could result in property damage worth approximately $25,000. Despite this, all standard homeowner’s insurance policies exclude flood damage coverage. This means that you must have a separate policy for flood damage for you to recover financial compensation for losses due to flood damage.
In the Sunshine State, torrential rains and ever-rising sea levels can cause flooding in an instant, and when your property suffers damage as a result, it will be up to your insurance provider to give you adequate compensation to address the flood damage properly. Instead, most property owners suffer terrible delays when trying to recover from their insurer, while some experience unfair denials.
The Florida flood damage claims attorneys of Tragos, Sartes & Tragos know all too well the harm that a flood can cause to your house, business premises, and belongings. Whether a broken pipe, storm, or hurricane caused the damage, if your insurer offers you less than what you need for repairs and replacement costs, we will fight for your right to receive the real amount of your claim.
The Most Common Causes of Flood Damage
Flood damage isn’t only destructive, as everything in the water’s way can easily be damaged beyond repair, but it’s likewise a very costly recovery process. The following are the most common causes of flood damage in Florida:
- Coastal flooding
- Broken pipes
- Torrential rains
- Leaking roofs
- Overflowing rivers
- Faulty drainage systems
- Obstructed waterways
We fully understand how difficult it is to estimate the value of your property and belongings after they have been ruined and submerged in water. Likewise, depending on what caused the flood, you may not be able to fully realize the full extent of the damage right away. Restoring your property and belongings will require a lot of work, time, and money.
If your flood insurance provider isn’t cooperating and is refusing to give you the resources you require to fix the flood damage, our Florida flood damage claims attorneys will know how to get them to cooperate. Securing the financial recovery to repair the damage to your property shouldn’t be more stressful than the flood that caused it. With our legal guidance, you can focus all your efforts on rebuilding.
If you’ve suffered from the delay tactics, denial letters, and unfair payment offers of your insurer, leave it to our attorneys to pursue the maximum compensation you are entitled to.
