Hurricane Damage Attorneys in Tallahassee
Just because we’re in northern Florida doesn’t mean Tallahassee area residents are immune from the devastating effects of hurricanes. Strong hurricane force winds and torrential downpours can have drastic consequences for Tallahassee homes and businesses. In many cases, your homeowners or business insurance should cover some or even all of those damages.
Your insurance company may not see it that way. Even though you may have been a great policy holder who dutifully pays their premiums every year, the insurance company may still try to deny your claim. In some cases, these denials are due to legitimate coverage exclusions, but in many other cases the damage was either misreported by an insurance company claims adjuster or some other mistake was made, resulting in a claim denial or an underpaid claim settlement for damage that should be covered.
The Kanner & Pintaluga attorneys in Tallahassee excel at helping home and business owners get the claim settlement they need to repair and rebuild after a hurricane. We work with experienced independent claims adjuster to determine the true source of your property damage and analyze your insurance policy before negotiating your claim with your insurance company.
Our goal is to collect all the evidence necessary and provide the analysis that clearly shows the insurance company why your hurricane damage claim should be covered by your policy. If they still don’t pay your claim, we will even take them to court for litigation.
Our Approach to Personal Injury in Tallahassee
- The first and in many ways most important step is to aggressively investigate your case and gather as much evidence as possible. This is why so many attorneys advise clients to call a personal injury attorney as soon as possible after an injury. The faster we’re able to begin interviewing witnesses, gathering accident photos and investigating the situation the more likely we’ll be able to gather an adequate amount of evidence to clearly prove your case.
- We use the information we’ve gathered and the case we’ve built to begin negotiating with the negligent party’s attorneys. Fighting a case in a courtroom requires a lot of money for the insurance company. They have to pay high attorneys’ fees, court costs and other expenses in the process. In many situations, especially when your lawyers have put together a strong case, the insurance company will decide it’s going to be more cost effective to settle with you out of court and pay you the money you need to recover.
- If the opposing parties are not willing to settle your claim for a fair amount, your attorneys at Kanner & Pintaluga will gladly take your case to court. Our firm is built on experienced trial attorneys who won’t shy away from representing your case in front of a judge and jury to get you the compensation you deserve.
