Those who have had a residential or commercial property affected by a hurricane understand how devastating it is to see the building damaged or even destroyed. Unfortunately, even after a hurricane has blown through, sometimes your troubles are just beginning. Insurance companies that are supposed to cover your costs, pay for your losses and help you rebuild often don’t live up to their promises and make it difficult or impossible to move forward.
A property insurance attorney at Doyle LLP can help you cope with the aftermath of the hurricane and an insurance company’s bad faith tactics. We know how to get you the money you need, deserve and expect from your insurer. If you are having a hurricane insurance dispute, the time to call us is now.

Types of Disputes Handled by a Hurricane Damage Lawyer
Those who live in areas with the potential for a hurricane to occur typically have comprehensive insurance policies they believe will cover their losses. Unfortunately, even if you pay your insurance premiums and live up to your agreement, there is no guarantee the insurer will pay out as it should. A variety of problems can arise when dealing with your insurer after a hurricane occurs, including:
- Unfair and unreasonable delays in approving your claim or paying out a claim
- Undervaluing of your property or offers of a settlement insufficient to rebuild
- Unreasonable delay of claims that should be covered
- Denial of claims for business interruption/loss or undervaluing claims for lost business
If your insurance company employs these tactics, legal action is typically the only recourse if negotiations have failed. Remember, the insurer is not on your side; their focus is profits.
