Are you a homeowner or other property owner in New Orleans who suffered damage and loss after a hurricane? If your property was damaged, your insurance policy should provide monetary compensation that will help you rebuild your property and life. Our team can help you prove the value of your claim for coverage, file an amended claim, or file an appeal of your initial claim that was denied or insufficiently valued.
We also will not leave you wondering about the progress of your case against your insurance provider. At our firm, our New Orleans hurricane damage lawyer will provide guidance and direction throughout your fight for compensation. When you trust Laborde Earles Injury Lawyers with your case, we will work hard on your behalf to ensure your case is not undervalued and the compensation you receive is fair, according to your policy’s terms.
We’ll Help You Fight Insurance Company Tactics For Denying Coverage
Our New Orleans insurance claims lawyers are ready to help you fight for insurance coverage if your property sustained any of the following types of damage:
- Roof damage
- Structural damage
- Foundation damage
- Total property destruction
- Damage from flying debris
- Damage caused by moisture
- Damaged pools and landscaping
- Loss of furnishings and appliances
When we help you get monetary compensation to restore or rebuild your property, we start by reading your insurance policy and accurately calculating your damages. You are entitled to the insurance protection you paid for, and our team is committed to helping you get the fair financial reimbursement you deserve.
Detailing Your New Orleans Property’s Hurricane Damage
Part of fighting for you with your insurance company is creating a case file that proves the extent of your interior and exterior property damage. As we work on building a strong case file for you, we will ask you to provide our hurricane damage team with as much of the following information as possible:
- Your insurance policy and all attachments or addendums
- Before and after photos and video of your property
- A detailed list of each room’s contents
- A detailed list of all exterior property damage
- Receipts for temporarily securing your property
If your policy includes coverage for your alternative living expenses, such as a hotel or temporary apartment, provide us with receipts for your stays. Comply with any requests for information immediately and bring copies of any documents you have that you believe are reimbursable or will help us build your case. Our team will fight hard for you to maximize your insurance policy’s coverage.
Responding To The Insurer’s Tactics
Often, there is a legitimate reason for a claim to be denied or for an offer to be low. Other times, however, there isn’t one. The insurer’s reasoning may be flawed or dishonest.
If your insurer was dishonest at all, your New Orleans hurricane damage attorney can refute their reasoning and even threaten a lawsuit. The threat may help keep the insurer honest. Additionally, your attorney can protect you from your insurer’s tactics in the future.
Your insurer may have been or may be dishonest by:
- Claiming certain damages aren’t covered in your policy
- Claiming you didn’t have enough evidence to prove your damages
- Saying you didn’t pay your insurance premiums on time
- Saying you have pre-existing damage that wasn’t caused by the natural disaster
- Asserting the damage was caused by water, so it’s considered flood damage that isn’t covered by the insurer
- Asserting that you only need to repair a small part of your property and not as much as you claim
Suing, If Necessary
If your insurer is dishonest and engaging in bad-faith tactics, your lawyer won’t tolerate it and will follow through with a lawsuit against them. Your lawyer can take the insurer to court and fight for a fair verdict.
