Florida Hurricane Damage Lawyer

At the Law Offices of Carissa Kranz, we are committed to helping you recover from insurance after an accident or natural disaster causes property damage. Insurance companies’ interests are not aligned with your interests. The job of an insurance adjuster is to figure out how to pay as little as possible in exchange for a settlement release. Beware, as they are more concerned with preserving their bottom line than providing the policyholders the benefits they are owed on legitimate claims per their insurance premiums paid.

We believe in aggressive representation to ensure the insurance companies pay you what you are entitled to, to be whole again.

Florida Public Adjusters on Your Property Damage Claim

As soon as your property has suffered damage from a storm make sure to contact a property damage lawyer and then make a timely insurance claim. After you file a homeowners insurance claim, the insurance company will send out a claims adjuster. However, there are times, especially after large natural disasters like a large-scale storm event, such as a hail storm, wind storm, tropical storm or hurricane, there aren’t enough claims adjusters within the company, and so the company contracts out temporary or out-of-state insurance adjusters to come in.

These claims adjusters aren’t always thoroughly trained or familiar with spotting or accurately pricing all types of damage, which sometimes results in policyholders getting shortchanged on their insurance claim settlement offer. This is a serious problem if you are waiting for funds to fix the damage, and then you settle for less money than what it actually costs to get the property damage fixed.

Public insurance adjusters are trained on assessing property damage and can provide a second opinion regarding the damage sustained and what the homeowners policy covers. Public insurance adjusters are not lawyers, and they are not employees of the insurance company. Unlike insurance claims adjusters, public insurance adjusters do not have an incentive to undervalue your claim.

Hurricane Aftermath and Dealing with Your Insurance Company

Insurance companies, adjusters, and agents’ best interests are not your best interests when it comes to paying out on a property damage or bodily injury claim. Insurance companies make a profit for their investors when they receive more in premiums than they pay out in claims. That means insurance companies care about their bottom dollar line and have an incentive to pay as little as possible to you, as a policyholder, when you file a claim for property damage after large-scale events like a Hurricane, tidal wave, or tropical storm. That is why it is critical to have experienced attorneys fighting for your rights.
