WIND DAMAGE TO YOUR HOME OR BUSINESS CAN BE AS DEVASTATING AS IT IS SUDDEN.
REGARDLESS OF WHETHER YOU’VE SUFFERED MINIMAL DAMAGE TO YOUR ROOF OR A COMPLETE LOSS OF YOUR PROPERTY, MATERIAL POSSESSIONS AND/OR INVENTORY THROUGHOUT YOUR PROPERTY, YOU DESERVE FULL COMPENSATION FOR ALL LOSSES COVERED BY YOUR INSURANCE POLICY.
If your insurance company has wrongfully denied or undervalued your wind damage claim, Wites Law Firm will fight for you and your family to obtain the compensation to which you are entitled.
Wind damage to your home
Destructive winds in excess of 50mph can cause various types of damage to your home. It is common for strong winds to rip away roof tiles and shingles, while flying debris can cause extensive damage to windows and doors. Strong winds can also damage garage doors or rip the tiles, siding, gutters or fascia from the outside of your property. Any items that you generally keep outside- such as tools, sheds or lawn furniture can be damaged or they might simply blow away or be destroyed.
Extremely high winds can cause structural damage or roof lifting. If winds are strong enough to bring down trees and power lines onto your property, then your home should be inspected for structural damage. Any breach of your home may cause secondary damage such as mold from moisture. Frayed or damaged electrical cables may also be present which could start fires that further damage your property and belongings.
In severe cases you might need to leave your home and your belongings and move into temporary accommodation. Rent and the replacement of everyday necessities will be an added expense that you will have to pay for while repairs are carried out on your property.
In many cases, you will find that your insurance company works hard to limit the amount of money they pay out on your claim. So it is crucial that you document all of your losses, including taking photographs of all property that has been completely destroyed, and all property that is damaged. It is especially important to do this before repairs begin.
Is your insurance company acting in your best interests?
Carefully consider your insurance company’s offer. Insurance companies will almost always try to settle for less than you deserve and they do not always contemplate the hidden effects of wind damage on your home when they consider your compensation package. If you feel the offer is well below what your property and possessions are worth, or if your insurance company is denying your wind damage claim altogether, then you should call Wites Law Firm. We will investigate your case, and consult with our team of insurance experts, to determine the full value of your claim. We will fight for you in court, to obtain the money that you deserve from the insurance company to which you have dutifully paid your insurance premiums.
