Supportive Counsel You Can Rely On

Hurricane Claims Attorneys in Fort Walton Beach

Recover Property Damage Following Hurricanes and Storms

Every year, Florida residents fear their homes will be ravaged and their businesses destroyed during hurricane season. In October of 2018, Hurricane Michael hit the Florida Panhandle, causing $14 billion in damages and 46 deaths. This category 4 storm, the single-most powerful to make landfall in state history, brought heavy rain and high winds with it that devastated affected areas.

To make a harrowing situation even worse, many policyholders found out too late that their homeowners’ insurance would not fully cover them. These insurers failed the people of Florida, dodging professional responsibility and basic human decency in order to maintain their bottom line.

At The Virga Law Firm, P.A., our Fort Walton Beach hurricane claims lawyers believe this is not right. Led by Attorney William J. “West” Ritchie, who has over 28 years of experience serving the Florida Panhandle, our team has been committed to helping the victims of Hurricane Michael since the storm first began leaving damage in its wake. Our goal is to craft the strongest possible claims case for you in order to secure maximum compensation from your insurance company. When insurance providers refuse to negotiate, we are not afraid to start a legal battle and take it all the way.

Call (800) 822-5170 today for hurricane and tropical storm litigation that won’t back down.
