Hurricane Insurance Disputes
Disputes Unfortunately, it is not uncommon for insurance companies to use “the fine print” in many policyholders’ contracts as grounds for denying their claims. Many homeowners, tenants, and owners of business or commercial properties have had their claims rejected on the grounds that their claims only cover property damaged by winds and wind-driven rains, but not damages from floods, waves, surface waters, and spray water, which The National Flood Insurance Program generally covers.

Hurricane Katrina Claims
What many insurance companies fail to tell people is that a lot of the property damage wrought by Hurricane Katrina occurred even before the levees broke and were in fact caused by winds. Damaged shingles, ripped up roof decks and balconies, roof or wall structure failures, and broken windows are usually signs of wind damage. Thornhill Law Firm, A PLC, has been actively involved in helping property owners and business owners recover damages for the destruction that Hurricane Katrina left behind.

Our New Orleans-based hurricane law firm handles all kinds of hurricane claim cases, including those involving homeowner claims, business owner claims, apartment claims, commercial claims, property loss, general liability coverage, and environmental claims.

In Louisiana, insurance companies have just 30 days to resolve a claim with a claimant upon receipt of “satisfactory proof of loss.” An insurance company that fails to reply to a claim may be subject to additional penalties. An insurance company that offers a policyholder a bad faith offer is in breach of contract.
