Hurricane Damage Attorneys in Florida

Managing Your Property Damage Claims for Hurricanes & Storms

Each year, hurricane season means regions throughout Florida may be ravaged by powerful storms and hurricanes. In October 2018, Hurricane Michael hit the Florida Panhandle as the single-most powerful hurricane to make landfall in the state’s history. The devastation was enormous and harrowing, but the situation only got worse once many policyholders discovered their homeowners’ insurance company was not there to help them. Instead, insurers tend to look for ways to duck out of their responsibilities to the insured in order to save their bottom line.

If you need to file a hurricane damage claim in Florida, from Pensacola to Miami, come to The Virga Law Firm, P.A. for guidance and support.

  • Labeling hurricane damage as preexisting when it is not
  • Misconstruing hurricane damage as flood damage to nullify policy coverage
  • Stating necessary repairs are unneeded, or purely cosmetic
