As most Floridians know, severe storms that move across the panhandle often wield the potential to inflict widespread devastation—both to property and lives—that results in billions of dollars’ worth of damages, grinding businesses and recovery efforts to a halt. When major hurricanes, such as Hurricane Irma, are slated to make landfall, property owners look to their insurance providers for security; however, more often than not, insurance companies fail to uphold their agreements with their policyholders, providing too little coverage, or no coverage at all, when it’s needed most.
The Shiner Law Group’s award-winning law firm provides sound legal counsel to grantees and applicants of disaster recovery assistance to expedite FEMA Public Assistance grants and maximize financial recovery in storm-related property damage insurance claims. Our team of seasoned lawyers customizes its legal services to the facts and circumstances of each case. Although we provide the type of sophisticated legal services often associated with large law firms, we are committed to delivering the personalized attention of a small firm.
We understand that our clients are coping with extreme hardships, so we handle insurance company negotiations and legal hurdles in pursuit of the fullest recovery to which our clients are entitled under Florida law. With over 15 years’ experience serving the Florida community, we have hands-on experience in helping disaster relief grantees and applicants.
Grantees Our FEMA disaster assistance attorneys work with a network of reputable industry professionals to facilitate storm-related property damage insurance claims, including preliminary damage assessments.
Applicants We understand the inherent challenges applicants face in the aftermath of a severe natural disaster, such as Hurricane Irma. We are committed to fully integrating your storm-related property damage insurance claim with your FEMA recovery package.
Florida’s geographic location makes the state prone to natural disasters, which are often powerful enough to cause widespread devastation. Insurance company negotiations should not be another hurdle in the aftermath of a storm. The property damage attorneys at the Shiner Law Group are prepared to take even the largest insurance companies to court to fight on behalf of your legal and financial interests.
Insurance companies and their adjusters will use loopholes to protect their company’s bottom line, which means there is no guarantee a storm-related property damage victim’s claim will be paid.
Some of the reasons insurance companies will use to avoid paying for storm-related property damages include, but are not limited to:
- State that property owners failed to properly mitigate storm-related damages or fix preventable maintenance issues
- Attribute water damage to flooding or pre existing leaks
- Claim that unsafe living conditions existed prior to the storm (i.e. residing near the coast).
It is imperative to consult with a property damage lawyer when filing an insurance claim, because insurance companies will seek to underpay or deny the claims of unrepresented parties. We understand the dogged tactics employed by insurance companies and their legal teams, which is why we have built a reputation for providing sound legal counsel while fostering a positive client experience over the past 15 years.
As a visible part of the Florida community, we aggressively pursue the best results for our clients and ensure they receive the care, attention, and thoroughness they deserve.
