Fear-mongering is not our style at CBTG. We want you to be aware and prepare for the next hurricane season amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. Florida residents, homeowners, and business owners must remain vigilant as hurricane season unfolds against the backdrop of the novel coronavirus outbreak.
The 2020 hurricane season officially starts June 1 and runs until Nov. 30. Florida residents frequently deal with extreme weather conditions, including hurricanes that can cause wind and water damage.
Projections that have been issued by various agencies and institutions forecast for this 2020 hurricane season to be above-average in terms of tropical activity. Those who track ocean and atmospheric dynamics say conditions are ripe for storms. There are two main factors that suggest this year’s hurricane season could be busier than usual: warmer-than-average sea surface temperatures in the Atlantic Ocean and low probabilities that a climate pattern known as El Niño will return.
Corless Barfield Trial Group is your hurricane damage insurance dispute law firm. We are located in Tampa, Florida but have helped clients when dealing with storm damage-related claims all over Florida, from Key West to Mexico Beach to Melbourne to Ft. Myers and everything in between.
The high winds and heavy rain that come with storms can wreak havoc on homes, condos, and apartment buildings. Individuals also can suffer severe bodily injury or even death from fallen trees, flying debris, and electrocution. Those who own residences, vacation homes or commercial buildings or manage homeowners and condominium associations in Florida should be familiar with the kind of havoc that severe storms can wreak on properties and what are their insurance policy provisions.
Homeowners and business owners should be able to rely on their property insurance to provide them with a financial safety net when their properties suffer hurricane damage. Yet oftentimes insurance companies delay, deny, or underpay valid storm damage claims. Why? Insurers have an incentive to pay as little as possible to policyholders when they file claims for large loss events like hurricanes. It is critical to have an experienced and knowledgeable attorney fighting for your rights.
The role of a property damage insurance claims attorney is to ensure that you receive the amount owed under your policy for any hurricane or storm-related damage and injuries. The difference at CBTG is we don’t prepare to settle storm damage claims. Our entire trial preparation team consists of litigation experts who intend to actually try your case in court rather than settle for far less than you are owed. Our storm damage law firm can help hold insurance companies accountable.
Don’t delay in seeking legal assistance; contacting Corless Barfield Trial Group early in the process will help us gather the evidence needed to support your claim.
