Insurers are denying or underpaying too many hurricane damage claims. In 2020, Hurricans Laura, Delta, and Zeta caused devastating damage to Louisiana properties.

Did your insurer deny or not pay enough for your hurricane damage claim?
Just because your insurance company sent out their chosen adjuster, wrote up some damage, and cut you a check does not necessarily mean compensation was fairly appropriated. As they say, “the devil is always in the details”. After the hurricanes there were thousands of adjusters driving in from all over. Insurers set up crash courses for insurance adjusters. In like manner, in many cases these courses lasted only a few days. These insurance adjusters may have been under pressure to adjust damage quickly, which could have resulted in the adjuster not giving you the time needed to fully asset your hurricane damage claim. Inspect your property closely and look for the small things that are indicators of larger underlying damage. Look for cracks in your caulking, look for fog in your double-paned windows, look for separated trim and baseboards, look for broken or shifted rafters in your attic.
