Even though you’ve paid your insurance premiums faithfully for years, your insurance company still may not step up when disaster strikes. If you had insurance against property damage at the time of the incident, your insurance company is supposed to be responsible for the costs. Unfortunately, insurance companies are always looking out for their bottom line, which means that they’re always trying to pay the smallest amount they can get away with on EVERY CLAIM. Don’t be a victim of advertising and believe that your insurance company has your best interests at heart. EVERY INSURANCE COMPANY is a for profit company and contrary to what they say, they are NOT A GOOD NEIGHBOR, you are NOT IN GOOD HANDS, and THEY ARE NOT ON YOUR SIDE! Having a property insurance attorney representing YOUR INTERESTS will help to ensure that you get the compensation you deserve, and that they fully cover the property damage after a storm or natural disaster according to your policy, after all, that’s why we have insurance.

How A Property Damage Attorney Can Help You

When disaster strikes, most people will be too stressed about rebuilding and making sure their families are okay to handle complicated negotiations with their insurance company. A property damage attorney can help you with a coverage dispute during this difficult time; having a legal expert skilled at negotiating with insurance companies will ensure that you get the compensation you deserve. A property damage lawyer will hire the proper experts needed to estimate damages, examine your policy and get the full compensation for damage caused by the event. The most important rule when hiring a property damage attorney is to make sure this is their MAIN AREA of practice. Many attorneys will add property damage to their list of services after a disaster strikes to capitalize on the opportunity but have no experience in dealing with property damage claims. This is NOT who you want to hire, after all, you wouldn’t go to a heart surgeon for brain surgery would you? The same holds true for law. Make sure your attorney has had property damage as a main practice prior to the disaster striking in your area. 

Why Should I Hire A Property Damage Attorney?

Having an experienced property damage lawyer on your side will significantly increase your chances of getting the compensation you deserve from your insurance company and make sure you receive the maximum benefit you are owed. Some benefits of hiring a property damage lawyer include

Expert Legal Advice

As an ordinary person who doesn’t work in insurance or property law, you probably don’t have the in-depth knowledge required to file a property damage lawsuit. Getting an experienced property damage lawyer ensures that your case will get the expert handling it deserves, and the attorney will help you decide on the best course of action for your particular situation. They will help you choose the optimal legal strategy and answer any questions you have.

Evaluating Damage

Before you decide to take your case to court, you need to know exactly how much your specific claim is really worth. A property damage attorney will help you understand what you can gain if you decide to pursue a legal case. Your attorney will work with you on the case and help you navigate complex steps. Damages aren’t only financial, but may also include pain and suffering, and your attorney will assess all relevant factors.

Negotiating A Settlement

Most property damage cases are solved outside of the courtroom. You should have an experienced attorney to ensure that you’re being treated fairly and not being taken advantage of. Your attorney will make sure the settlement amount is fair and advise you on whether or not you should go to trial.
