Flooded Louisiana neighborhood after a hurricane

Why Was My Hurricane Water Damage Claim Denied Even Though I Have Flood Insurance?

Experiencing damage to your home as a result of a hurricane can be truly devastating. Not only did you have to do everything possible to survive the catastrophic natural disaster, but now you’re left to deal with the aftermath in its wake.

Having your flood insurance claim denied following a hurricane can be both frustrating and worrisome. You’ve already been through a tremendously difficult time, and now the insurance company wants to play games with your livelihood.

However, it’s important not to panic following a claim denial. Most insurance companies tend to initially deny many of the viable claims that come their way. They do this so they can save money… at your expense.

If your flood insurance claim was denied after your property sustained hurricane damage, here’s what you should know:

Having Skilled Representation Is Important

One of the best things you can do to help the success of your claim is to hire a skilled legal team to fight on your behalf. Having experienced representation on your side will show the insurance company that you are not willing to play their game and you are serious about your claim.

As you probably are aware, insurance companies have no problem taking your money, and they do whatever they can to try and hold onto it. Don’t take it personally, this is simply the industry standard.

But just because it happens, doesn’t make it right. Here at Jones & Hill, we understand and can fight back against the tactics insurance companies use to avoid paying claimants the full value of their hurricane damage claims.
