Hurricane Michael is considered the third most powerful storm to ever strike the United States, making landfall in Mexico Beach, FL in early October. The Category 4 hurricane sustained winds of 155 miles per hour at landfall and gusts of 130 mph, ripping through coastal and inland communities, obliterating buildings, uprooting roads, and causing power outages that left almost 700,000 homes and businesses without electricity. The hurricane caused at least 35 fatalities and millions of dollars in damage in counties throughout Florida.
Many residents in these communities will be filing property damage claims with their insurers. Unfortunately, insurance companies do their best to pay the least amount owed on each claim—or nothing at all—to maintain their profit margin, footing the bill to victims.
At Stabinski & Funt, P.A., we are dedicated to helping Florida residents obtain the compensation they deserve. Since our Florida insurance claim lawyers have secured more than $500 million on behalf of our clients, we understand what it takes to get the most favorable results.
The following are the proper steps to take to ensure you recover all the compensation available under your insurance policy:
While many people believe their insurance company has their back when disaster strikes, it is not always the case. Since insurers are devoted to making a profit, they often try to find ways to either deny or reduce the amount of your entitled compensation.
Our experienced insurance claim lawyers have protected the rights and best interests of countless clients who have experienced claim denials. We understand the complexities of the system and can guide you through the claims process to help you make the repairs necessary to rebuild your home and your life.
If you attempt to handle an insurance claim for Hurricane Michael by yourself, you are leaving yourself vulnerable to the will of insurance companies.
