Wind damage encompasses more than just hurricanes, and may include damage from tornadoes, thunderstorms, or tropical storms. When disaster does strike, Insurance companies send out adjusters quickly and try to settle fast, to the relief of homeowners and business owners, except this isn’t always in their best interest.
For instance, you have damage to your roof, so the insurance company offers a quick payment that seems generous, but is it? If the roof leaked then you may have ceiling damage that may not be visible yet, insulation that may need to be replaced, and possible mold issues. Insurance companies are in the business of making money and not paying claims.

Should it become necessary, we will expertly negotiate a settlement or, if need be, aggressively litigate in court on behalf of our clients, throughout the State of Florida.
What is My Insurance Company’s Legal Responsibility When My Business Files a Wind Damage Claim?

Your business and commercial insurance policies are there to ease the financial burden associated with lost revenue, repairs and replacement due to wind damage. It’s the reason you pay your business insurance premium – to ensure your business assets are protected in the event of damage caused in wind, fire, water, power outage or flood damage. Your policy is a legally binding contract between you and your insurance company.
