I Have Flood Insurance: Why Was My Hurricane-Related Property Damage Claim Denied?

Having your home and personal belongings destroyed as a result of a hurricane can be agonizing. Not only did you have to endure an intense natural disaster, but now you have to deal with picking up the pieces in its wake.

It can be highly frustrating to have a flood insurance claim denied. You’ve already been through the wringer, and now the insurance company is adding insult to injury.

Don’t worry; it’s common for insurance companies to deny and significantly undervalue claims right off the bat. You see, insurance companies operate to turn a profit. If they pay out the total value of all viable claims, they stand to lose a lot of money.

Here’s what you should know if your flood insurance claim is denied:

Hire an Attorney

The very best thing you can do for your claim is hire a skilled hurricane property damage attorney. Having a knowledgeable legal professional on your side can make all the difference in the outcome of your claim.

As you may already know, insurance companies like to take your money, but they don’t necessarily want to give it back when you need it most. It may seem like they’re out to get you, but unfortunately, it’s just the nature of the industry.

A skilled hurricane property damage attorney will know how to effectively handle the insurance company so that you get what is rightfully yours. Insurance companies take advantage of claimants who don’t understand their rights every day. Don’t let that be you.
