Fort Lauderdale Flood Damage Claims Attorneys
Flooding of your property often occurs from torrential rain, tropical storms, and hurricanes that are common to the state of Florida. Unfortunately, any time your property is flooded, the damage can be devastating to parts or all of your home or building. You can lose everything within your home, including valued personal items, furniture, appliances, and more as well as structural, exterior, and interior damage. Flooding can also lead to other problems, such as toxic mold. Unfortunately, flood damage is not generally part of the coverage on typical homeowner policies. To protect yourself against the losses caused by floods, it is necessary to buy flood insurance as well as homeowner insurance.
As we all know, the expenses related to flooding can be huge, especially when your home has been partially or wholly under water. You may be displaced from your home as well while you face the high cost of repairs and replacement. At Schirmer Law, we understand the financial and emotional stress of such situations. Our trusted team can help you file your claim and will fight for your rights should your insurer act in a dishonest or underhanded way in response. Because dealing with insurance companies is routine for us, we know how these companies operate. We can help you pursue a fast and fair result through experienced representation.
Florida Flood Damage Cases
Putting your home or property back together after flooding can be a daunting prospect. You may not even know the full extent of the damage immediately. The consequences of having your home, business, or commercial property submerged under water can lead to substantial and even hidden damage.
Flooding can cause damage to your walls, hardwood or tile floors, carpeting, throw rugs, furniture, electronics, water heater, washer and dryer, refrigerator, stove, personal possessions, air ducts, and more. In some cases, this can lead to poor air quality and, in the worst scenario, can result in mold which is very expensive to treat and eliminate.
Your first reaction after flooding will likely be to submit a claim as fast as possible so that you can get the compensation you need. However, thorough and complete documentation is vital because what you submit to your insurer will form the basis of your claim and potential settlement. Furthermore, it is also crucial that you understand the terms and conditions of your coverage as well as deductibles, exclusions, and other information. At Schirmer Law, we can assist you step-by-step in putting together your claim and clarifying your policy as well as handling any claims disputes that arise.
