As residents of Florida know, enjoying the sunshine and tropical climate of our state also means being exposed to brutal and often sudden storm conditions. This includes hurricanes and tropical storms. Unfortunately, insurance companies do not always honor their financial obligations under the policies they issue. When this happens, insureds are left with repairs to their home or business they can’t afford.

Help for Underpaid & Denied Hurricane Insurance Claims

Our dedicated and experienced team at Danahy & Murray know that receiving storm damage relief can mean the difference between having a home which is livable or a business which is viable. The Florida insurance claim attorneys at our firm have recovered more than $127 million for clients who have been wronged by their insurance company’s improper denial of insurance coverage or underpayment of insurance benefits owed. The Danahy & Murray professionals are ready to help with your storm damage claim, from helping you determine the coverage available under your policy, advising you on the terms and conditions you must comply with in order to preserve your right to insurance benefits, and evaluating benefits which are owed to you. We ensure that your insurance company is held accountable to provide you the coverage you paid for.

It’s hard to predict how any business, building, home, condominium unit or any other structure will hold up to a storm. When damage does occur and a claim needs to be filed, many policyholders are unsure how to proceed and best demonstrate that they are owed coverage.

If your property has been damaged by a storm:

  1. Immediately report the claim to your insurance company.
  2. Take any possible steps to protect your property from further storm damage.
  3. Document all existing damage with photos and/or video.
  4. Make a written inventory of all damages
  5. Keep a file for any documents or information regarding your claim.
  6. Make and keep copies of all documents sent to you by your insurance company.
  7. Save all receipts for expenses related to the damage/repairs
  8. Keep a written log or journal of all communications with your insurance company or adjuster.

If you are then notified that your claim has been denied (or you that you will receive significantly less money than needed), it is time to contact legal representation. These companies make their profits from the peace of mind they sell their policyholders and then protect that profit by denying or minimizing the claims of those same customers.

Why Choose Danahy & Murray for Your Hurricane Claim?

Our Florida property insurance lawyers have handled countless insurance claim cases all over the state for more than 150 combined years. We are not a general, “do all” law firm, but rather one that has specializes in property insurance claims. Our experience in property insurance has allowed us to successfully resolve our client’s disputed coverage and valuation claims. You’ll need lawyers who know how to read your policy, and to offer you accurate advice to be successful in your claim or coverage dispute.

We know that our clients are often facing enormous financial hardships due to these storms. That is why, in many cases, we work on a contingency-fee basis: we charge the client nothing, no costs or fees, unless and until we recover the
denied or disputed insurance coverage benefits. Furthermore, Florida law in many cases allows us to seek our legal fees and costs directly from the insurance company, over and above the insurance coverage benefits we obtain for our clients.

Whether you are getting ready to make your claim for damage, or have already reported your claim, contacting Danahy & Murray could help you avoid forfeiting insurance coverage rightfully yours, or accepting less than what you are owed for all your insured losses.

  • review rating 5  We sustained significant roof damage during Hurricane Irma. We spent 6 months months arguing with the insurance company. They refused to pay anything. We contacted 2 lawyers whose process was so cumbersome and their contract could actually have resulted in a net loss for us. We then applied for mediation and as a result of our application for mediation, Mr. Howard Weber contacted us. He was a pleasure to work with and was very responsive to all our calls and questions. As a result of his efforts, we received a significant settlement. We would highly recommend Mr. Weber and the law firm Danahy and Murray.

  • review rating 5  After our insurance company offered us nothing for damages from Hurricane Irma, my husband and I went to mediation. There, we declined their offer of next to nothing for our damages. So we reached out to Danahy and Murray and spoke with Howard Weber. After talking with him, he said he would take our case. Just Monday we talked with Howard and our case has reached a settlement! During the whole process Howard made things so easy and he was always on top of things. I would recommend Howard Weber with Danahy and Murray to anyone with these insurance needs!

He worked diligently to reverse the insurance company's denial of our claim and our rebuttal and succeeded brilliantly. Beyond our wildest expectations. We highly recommend Howard Weber of Danahy & Murray.
