When a hurricane, tropical storm or major windstorm hits, the damage it inflicts on residential and commercial properties can be enormous. Worst case scenario, people are left without water, power or a livable dwelling. Recovering from a hurricane can be a slow process, especially when insurance companies fail to live up to their end of the bargain.
If your insurance company has denied your property damage claim after a windstorm or hurricane for whatever reason, do not panic. This is actually a common practice on the insurance company’s end. Your insurance company may try and limit your compensation by convincing you that your home or property was damaged before the storm hit or that your neglect over the years somehow caused the damage you see now. Just remember, that you always have rights and options and the Cedar Key Hurricane & Storm Damage Claims Attorneys at Whittel & Melton can help, no matter what phase of the dispute you find yourself in with your insurance company.Get the Legal Help You Need in Levy County Following a Tropical Storm or Hurricane

What to Do If You Disagree With Your Settlement Offer
After a storm causes damage to your home or business and you do not agree with the amount your insurance provider has offered you, remember, you have a legal right to seek an appraisal for the damage. It is important to understand that before obtaining an appraisal, it is in your best interest to seek the advice of legal counsel. An appraisal may be the best option for your unique situation, but by doing so you could lose your right to a jury trial in a lawsuit against your insurance company over the full cost of damages to your home or business.
