If you have suffered property damage in a Florida hurricane and your Florida hurricane damage claim has been denied, there are several steps that you can take to issue an appeal.
These steps include:
- Try to negotiate with your insurance claims adjuster – If you do not understand the adjuster’s decision, ask for an explanation. To negotiate with your insurance claims adjuster, you may need the representation of a Florida hurricane attorney.
- Contact the adjuster’s supervisor for more information – Do this if you are not satisfied with the answers that your insurance adjuster has given you.
- Contact your insurance company’s claims representative for assistance – Do this when the claims adjuster’s supervisor can’t resolve your issues.
- If none of these avenues of appeal can help resolve your issues, you can write a letter of appeal to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) – In your letter of appeal to FEMA, you should include documentation of everything that supports your Florida hurricane damage claim, as well as a copy of your insurer’s written letter of denial.
If your letter of appeal to FEMA fails to resolve your Florida hurricane damage claim, then you can pursue your claim in a lawsuit. For help with submitting your letter of appeal to FEMA, or with filing a lawsuit after your Florida hurricane damage claim is denied, you can get the help of an experienced Florida hurricane attorney.
