Heavy weather — including thunderstorms, wind, hail, and hurricanes — is a fact of life in Florida. Owning a home or business here means preparing for the worst while hoping the storm will pass you by this time. Property insurance relieves home and business owners of some of the worry about what will happen if a storm causes damage. That is what property insurance is supposed to do, anyway. Sometimes, insurance companies add to the problem by denying valid Florida storm damage claims.

Cordova Law Firm handles claims related to all Florida storms and weather events, including Hurricane Irma, Hurricane Michael, Hurricane Dorian, Tropical Storm Cristobal, and the Orlando hailstorms. While your insurance policy should cover the costs related to storm or hurricane property damage, it is not unusual for an insurance company to deny, delay, or undervalue your claim. Our storm and hurricane property damage attorneys can help ensure that your investment is protected and you receive the compensation you deserve.
A storm doesn’t always have to be classified as a hurricane to cause significant property damage. Intense storms such as Tropical Storm Cristobal can devastate homes, businesses, and other properties. Tropical storm property damage can be caused by:
Tornados can also form during tropical storms and cause additional damage to structures. If your property was damaged due to the weather conditions of a tropical storm, your insurance is meant to cover the damages. If the insurance company denies your claim in bath faith, our experienced tropical storm property damage attorneys can help.
Hailstorms are a common occurrence in Florida. Recently, there have been several Orlando hailstorms, including a major one in May 2020. The costs associated with repairing hail storm property damage can be exorbitant — hailstorms can result in thousands of dollars of property damage to your home, business, boat, car, or other structures.
Hailstorm damage can include:
After a hailstorm, it’s a good idea to inspect your property for any damage it caused and file a claim right away. Hailstorm property damage can result in the need for substantial repairs, or even replacement. If your insurance company wrongfully denies your claim in whole or in part, our hailstorm attorneys can help fight for your rights as a policyholder.
Every hurricane season, Florida must prepare for the worst. In fact, due to weather-related risk, homeowner’s insurance in the state is double the national average. Destruction to homes, businesses, and other properties caused by storms such as Hurricane Dorian result in countless property damage claims being filed each year.
Although Hurricane Dorian didn’t make landfall when it moved into Florida in late August 2019, its devastating effects were still felt by thousands of home and business owners. Hurricane Dorian was responsible for extensive property damage as a result of:
Insurance is meant to cover the costs related to Hurricane Dorian property damage. Unfortunately, it’s not unusual for an insurance company to act in bad faith and try to deny, delay, or undervalue your hurricane damage claim. Our storm damage attorneys can help ensure you receive the insurance payout you deserve for your Hurricane Dorian property damage claim.
In October 2018, Hurricane Michael first made landfall in Florida as a catastrophic Category 5 hurricane. The storm caused widespread destruction throughout the state and was responsible for damaging nearly 50,000 structures as well as devastating the agricultural industry.
If your home, business, or property was impacted by the intensity of Hurricane Michael, you may have sustained a total loss. Hurricane Michael property damage can also include:
You may still be experiencing the widespread effects of Hurricane Michael and the property damage that resulted. If you lost property or sustained damage as a result of Hurricane Michael, there is still time to file a claim with your insurance company. Our Hurricane Michael storm damage attorneys can help protect your right to the insurance payout you deserve.
Until Hurricane Irma made landfall on September 10, 2017, no storm in Florida had caused such devastation since Hurricane Wilma in 2005. The storm first made landfall at Category 4 and ravaged through the Florida Keys, before it made its way up through south and central Florida. Hurricane Irma caused billions of dollars of damages to Florida's properties statewide including:
As one of the strongest hurricanes to hit Florida, its financial impact can still be felt by many. Thousands of insurance claims have been filed as a result of property destruction and loss. If your insurance company refuses to pay out on your claim, our Hurricane Irma property damage attorneys can help ensure you are rightfully compensated for loss of your investment.
