In the United States, losses from Hurricane Sandy totaled tens of billions of dollars. These losses came from interruptions to businesses as well as significant damage or destruction of homes and properties throughout Connecticut, Delaware, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Pennsylvania and Virginia.
Insurance exists to cover these losses, but insurance companies do not always do what they are contractually obligated to do. Insurance companies after hurricanes are notorious for giving claimants a hard time just when they depend on their insurance the most. At Doyle LLP, our Hurricane Sandy insurance claims attorneys understand how frustrating it can be when your insurer fails to give you the money you need to repair and rebuild. We are here to represent you in your Sandy insurance claims to compel the insurance companies to honor their contract with you.
Sandy Insurance Claims Problems
In March 2013, the New York Daily News reported that more than 500 complaints had been filed by New Yorkers with the Department of Financial Services as a result of insurance companies failing to pay claims related to Hurricane Sandy.
Insurance companies are expected to comply with the terms of the policy and pay out as required to individuals or businesses who sustained damage in the storm. Unfortunately, insurance companies often:
- Delay claims
- Deny coverage
- Delay payments
- Undervalue claims
All of this can be devastating to a business owner or to a homeowner who needs insurance money to repair or rebuild and start putting the pieces back together. Unfortunately, insurance companies are experts in trying to protect their profits at the expense of those who depend on them for coverage.
How a Hurricane Sandy Insurance Claims Attorney Can Help
When you enter into a contract for insurance, the insurer has an obligation to act in good faith. This means the insurance company is expected to pay a claim when a covered event like Hurricane Sandy occurs. The insurance company is also expected to be reasonable in valuing your property damage and other covered losses.

- Negotiate on your behalf with the insurance company
