West Central Florida Fire Damage Claim Attorneys
When your home or business is damaged or destroyed by fire, your first reaction may be, “Thank goodness I’m insured.” But not so fast. The company that sold you its homeowner’s policy already has your money. It is in no hurry to hand it back to you in claims. You have already experienced one disaster, the fire. You may have a second disaster in store, if your insurance company drags its feet adjusting your claim, providing you with necessary living expenses or in compensating you for your losses.
Fire claims cases are complicated. Every homeowner’s policy is different, with specified payout limits, deductibles, limitations, conditions and exclusions. You will need an attorney experienced in your kind of case to explain your options and to press for maximum compensation.

Fire damages constitute the highest average claim in Florida, year after year. Even small household fires are tremendously destructive. Direct fire damage is only part of the picture. Damage caused by smoke and water is often greater than the fire damage and more expensive to remediate. Even the process of extinguishing the fire, with broken doors and windows as well as holes made in roofs and walls, can dramatically increase the total cost.
