Hurricanes are indiscriminate in where they land and in what buildings they affect. Hurricane Sandy, for example, caused more than $68 billion in damages to apartments, office buildings, condos and other industrial and commercial spaces throughout the Northeast and mid-Atlantic.
When damage or destruction occurs as a result of a massive hurricane such as Sandy, those who suffer losses turn to their insurance companies for help. Business owners buy insurance coverage to protect them from loss and to ensure they can rebuild and move on after a storm blows through.
Insured clients transfer the risk of loss to insurance companies to avoid financial hardship. Insurance companies, however, all too often betray the trust of those they insure and leave policyholders vulnerable and waiting indefinitely for payouts in their time of need.
At Doyle LLP, our Hurricane Sandy building damage attorneys know how overwhelming it can be to wait for an insurance check that is far past due. We’ve represented many clients whose buildings were damaged by violent storms throughout the U.S. and we have successfully litigated many bad faith claims against insurance companies. We are here to help building owners whose insurers are not paying as required
Hurricane Sandy Building Damage Insurance Disputes
Hurricane Sandy was one of the most devastating weather events in the history of the United States. While Sandy blatantly destroyed or severely damaged structures up and down the East Coast, many building owners are still waiting for insurance payouts and have become involved in insurance disputes related to storm damage.
Commercial entities that were affected by Hurricane Sandy include, but are not limited to:
Property owners of these and other buildings do have certain legal rights and protections against insurance companies that have failed to pay claims. Only when confronted with litigation do insurance carriers sometimes feel compelled to oblige policyholders. It is time to make that happen.
