Supportive Counsel You Can Rely On

Hurricane Claim Attorneys in Destin

Insurance Claim Management & Representation – (800) 822-5170

After a hurricane or powerful storm washes over Destin, the result can be widespread devastation. The catastrophe is worsened when certain dishonest insurance companies attempt to undercut homeowners out of deserved recoveries, as described in their hurricane damage policies. In October 2018, Hurricane Michael destroyed property throughout the Florida Panhandle, and insurance companies held to their traditions by making it unduly difficult for policyholders to file a claim and secure a recovery.

The Virga Law Firm, P.A. and our team of Destin hurricane claim lawyers are dedicated to making certain the good people of Destin are given the recoveries they deserve. Led by Attorney William “West” Ritchie, who has nearly 30 years of legal experience focused on insurance claims, we have the skills needed to take on any major insurance company that might be denying or undervaluing your claim. While a settlement is usually optimal, we are not afraid to go to court if it means securing the best possible outcome on your behalf.

Shutting Down Insurance Tricks & Tactics

Insurance companies need to make a profit to keep the lights on. Some companies seek a profit by selling hurricane insurance at high premiums, only to later fight every single claim that policyholders file. You do not need to stand for the tricks and tactics they might try to use to unfairly deny your claim. Allow our insurance attorneys in Destin to show them you mean business by handing your case to our capable team.

Bad faith insurance tactics used by some insurers include:

  • Denying a claim without ever saying why
  • Continually asking for unnecessary paperwork from the claimant
  • Giving unjust reasons for delaying or undervaluing a claim
  • Stating hurricane damage was preexisting without evidence of that statement
  • Mislabeling hurricane damage as flood damage, possibly ending coverage
  • Claiming needed repairs are unnecessary
  • Using a first-party adjuster to incorrectly evaluate your property’s damage
