Hurricane Idalia caused major destruction throughout the state of Florida, which included cities like Perry, Cedar Key, and Keaton Beach. Winds reached as high as 125 mph, which was enough to tear off roofs, destroy windows, cause electrical problems, and more. Add the flooding that occurred in many areas, and you end up with a storm that caused both emotional and financial hardship to many homeowners.

In Perry, Florida, hurricane Idalia caused a significant amount of destruction. This included damaging homes, uprooting trees, and downing powerlines (leading to outages), which in turn caused some of the worst hurricane damage Perry Florida has ever seen.

Homeowners in Cedar Key, Florida were met with record-high storm surges that turned the beautiful city into a “flooded wreck.” This flooding in Cedar Keys and other factors destroyed beautiful homes throughout the city.

Due to the damage caused, many residents have been left dealing with the aftermath—which includes not only home repairs but also filing insurance claims. Many residents haven’t ever had to file these claims before, which can lead to confusion and even filing improperly. In turn, this can lead to an insurance provider denying the claim—leaving homeowners in an even more desperate situation.

If you are affected by hurricane Idalia and you need support filing your claim or your insurance company decides to deny your claim in bad faith, consider reaching out to Colucci Law Group. We help our clients to file claims properly and we offer legal services for those that were denied the money they are rightfully owed.

Filing an Insurance Claim

Filing your insurance claim on time and properly is extremely important to ensure you get the best payout possible. When you file, make sure you take photos and record video evidence, so you have proof of the damage. Also, follow all filing instructions so your insurance provider has no legitimate reason to deny your claim.

Having a record can be helpful in a situation in which your insurance provider decides to deny your claim in bad faith. Make sure you hold onto any communications they send you and even consider recording calls with your provider.

To ensure you get the best payout possible, consider hiring Colucci Law Group to help with filing your claim properly. We will file your claim expertly and will fight for your rights should your insurance provider attempt to deny your claim.
