Metairie Hurricane Claims Attorney Fighting For Homeowners and Business Owners Throughout Louisiana
In Louisiana, we know that a hurricane is a powerful, destructive force that can destroy homes, businesses, and even entire communities. A homeowners policy can help, but it may not cover flood damage, and you can’t be sure that your claim will be paid quickly and properly.
If you’ve suffered property damage in a hurricane and your insurance company has rejected your claim – or the company is delaying payment for no apparent reason – discuss your property damage claim and your rights with Metairie hurricane claims attorney Glenn C. McGovern.
You could actually be victimized twice by a hurricane – first, by the storm and the property damage itself, and then a second time by an insurance company that denies your property damage claim or refuses to negotiate a settlement with you in good faith.
If you are a homeowner or a business owner in Metairie or anywhere in the greater New Orleans area, and if your insurance company has denied, delayed, or “low-balled” your property damage claim after a hurricane, contact the Law Office of Glenn C. McGovern at once to schedule a free case evaluation. We will help you determine the best way to move forward with your claim.
What Does Homeowners Insurance Coverage Provide?
Generally speaking, there is no “hurricane insurance.” Instead, a standard homeowners policy covers most types of storm damage except for flood damage. Usually, flood insurance must be purchased separately, but every policy is different.
That’s one reason why it’s so important to read your policy all the way through so that you know what is covered and what requires a separate policy. If you’ve read your policy, and the insurance company denies your claim, you will know if the company is right or wrong.
Most homeowners’ policies require you to act quickly after a hurricane or another natural disaster. Take plenty of photos of your property damage, start keeping a written record of your correspondence and conversations with the insurance company, and file your claim promptly.
When thousands of people are submitting property damage claims at the same time, an insurance company may try to limit what the company is paying out. Especially after a hurricane, an insurance company may reject a claim or make a lowball offer even for a claim that’s valid.
Who Can Help You Challenge an Insurance Company?
If your property damage claim after a hurricane is rejected with no explanation or delayed for no apparent reason, contact an experienced Louisiana hurricane claims attorney who knows what it takes to prevail with your property damage claim. Call the Law Office of Glenn C. McGovern.
