Flood claims differ from water damage claims that arise from pipes bursting or leaks. A flood is narrowly defined as “rising” water that results from heavy rain, or from an existing water source, such as a lake which rises up and enters the residential or commercial property.
Anytime flooding occurs, it is usually on a large scale and will require a lot of recovery and maintenance to repair the damage. You may be entitled to replacement of items affected from a flood such as carpeting, baseboards and paint. In addition, it may be necessary to request professional cleaning services. Flood insurance typically needs to be purchased in addition to a homeowner’s insurance policy.

After a homeowner or business owner sustains property damage, he or she has the option to hire an attorney or a public adjuster. However, because a public adjuster is not an attorney, a public adjuster is unable to go to Court on behalf of a homeowner or business owner when an insurance company is not fairly evaluating a claim. Insurance companies know that and will often use it to their advantage by trying to short change a client and public adjuster.
If an attorney is hired in a case after a client already signed with a public adjuster it could unfortunately result in double fees for the homeowner or business owner. Therefore, we suggest calling one of our experienced attorneys right away to get involved from the beginning. We have public adjusters that work through us without an additional contingency fee.
Furthermore, this results in no additional surprise fees down the road for the homeowner or business owner. Most importantly, unlike a public adjuster, attorneys can recover fees separately in litigation, at no additional cost to you, which could mean a greater recovery to you.
