Hurricanes often leave a path of destruction ranging over hundreds or thousands of miles and leaving residential and commercial properties with severe property damage. When hurricanes strike, roofs, siding, and the exterior of your property are especially vulnerable, which can lead to interior damage.
The insurance policy for your residential or commercial property is supposed to protect you when disaster strikes. In the event of a hurricane, policyholders expect property damage to be covered under their policy. Unfortunately, despite their obligations to policyholders, insurance companies frequently attempt to delay, dispute, or deny valid claims following a hurricane—leaving property owners without the compensation they need to make essential repairs.
Doyle Raizner has significant experience in handling property damage claims arising out of damage sustained in hurricanes. We can assist you in making hurricane claims so you hold an insurance company to the financial promise they are contractually obligated to honor.
