Hurricane Damage FAQs

Aren’t hurricane damage lawyers expensive?

Many people are hesitant to work with lawyers as they are unsure of the associated fees and lack understanding of how the hurricane damage claim filing process works. There is little to no risk to you, and the faster you submit your insurance claim, the easier it will be to prove the damages to your property resulting from the hurricane. Hiring a Columbia hurricane damage lawyer will help you navigate these winds and waters correctly and approach your insurance agency properly. 

Does my homeowner's insurance cover hurricane damage in South Carolina?

Homeowner's insurance usually covers hurricane damage caused by high winds, hail, and rain. Unfortunately, most homeowners insurance does not cover flooding. Usually, there is extra coverage you would need to purchase if the damage caused by the hurricane is flood-related. We recommend reaching out to your Columbia insurance agency at the first sign there might be a hurricane coming for your property. 

We are currently processing Hurricane Ian & Idalia claims that have flood damage, wind damage, property damage, and all the types of damages listed below. 

Am I entitled to more compensation than the insurance company initially offers?

In most cases, yes. South Carolina insurance companies always start with lowball offers to see if you will give in and settle. Do not take the first settlement an insurance company provides you. If you are taking on this endeavor without a Columbia attorney, we strongly recommend reaching out to our firm.

What types of South Carolina hurricane claims do you handle?

Hurricane Idalia Claims
