FEMA Flood Claim Dispute Lawyer
Property damage caused by floods is covered by specialty flood insurance regulated by the Federal Emergency Management Agency, or FEMA. Flood damage is different than typical water damage from plumbing problems or other sources of water flooding your home or business. If your home or property was damaged by flooding and you have flood insurance, your claim must be processed using FEMA guidelines.
FEMA flood insurance claims are very different than typical property damage insurance claims. There are many restrictions and regulations that must be followed to the letter to ensure your claim is accepted and paid accordingly. At Ligori & Sanders Attorneys at Law, we have the needed legal experience to help our clients with flood insurance process their claims to meet the regulations. Unfortunately, some property owners choose to navigate this process on their own and may be denied coverage or offered a lower payout than needed to cover the damages.
Legal Help for Fighting Flood Insurance Claim Disputes
If you are fighting to have your flood claim processed and accepted, time is of the essence. There are strict rules on time restrictions for filing a FEMA flood insurance claim and proof of loss. In addition, there are limits on what costs can be recovered. If you need an extension of the filing deadlines, you must meet stringent guidelines. Without legal help, many insured property owners may not receive the compensation they deserve for their loss. Disputing a denial or low payout is even more difficult. This is why you need the help of experienced property damage attorneys to recover the funds you need after a substantial flood damage loss.
