Hurricane Ian Damage to Businesses

The damage inflicted by Hurricane Ian across Florida has left many businesses in a difficult position where they are unable to resume operation until the insurance coverage they were relying on manages to come through. Hurricane Ian made landfall in Florida in Lee and Charlotte County at category 4 strength. Flooding and storm surge in parts reached up to 12 feet high with the storm's winds reaching a maximum of 155 miles per hour.  These overwhelming natural forces in addition to the heavy rainfall, tornados, and debris the storm generated caused intense physical damage to businesses. Business locations sustained damage rendering them unable to function with assets and other property becoming ruined by water damage.  In addition to this physical damage, businesses also must contend with the loss of commerce and services that the effects of the storm have shut down. This all adds up to a significant sum, especially in the hardest-hit areas of Southwest Florida. 

Business Insurance Companies and Seeking Coverage for Hurricane Damage

Seeking coverage for hurricane damage to your business can feel like squeezing blood from a stone. Insurance companies are not interested in providing the full value of coverage you are entitled to. Instead, they will do everything legally possible to minimize the amount they pay out. For many, this means getting lowballed and having their damages undervalued. For others, this means getting their hurricane damage claim denied outright. This might be due to anything from a lack of coverage for water damage specifically or they may not even provide a reason at all. Seeking the assistance of an experienced hurricane damage insurance lawyer is your best course of action if this is the case.
