Florida businesses of all types and all across the Sunshine State have endured billions of dollars in losses. Sadly, nearly ever year in our state, businesses from the Keys to Pensacola and everywhere else in between end up facing devastating consequences associated with horrific weather events. In fact, after every major weather event, especially hurricanes, a discouraging number of Florida businesses end up permanently shuttered.
With this grim report in mind, there are some facts and factors to bear in mind when it comes to prospect of having to rebuild your Florida business after a hurricane of another major weather event. These include:
- Be proactive: Schedule a Florida business insurance audit today
- Don’t delay in retaining a Florida business insurance claim lawyer
- Know your post-storm legal rights
Be Proactive: Schedule a Florida Business Insurance Audit Today
If you are like many business owners, you may think that you’ve all of the commercial insurance coverage you need. However, if you are also like most Florida entrepreneurs, there may be some type or types of coverage that you inadvertently overlooked. That scenario is a commonplace and understandable reality among business owners of all types.
A prime example is found in regard to insurance coverage for flood damage. Many, many business owners (and homeowners as well) believe that their standard casualty insurance policies include coverage for damages and losses resulting from flooding. The fact is that homeowners’ insurance and commercial insurance policies usually do not cover damages and losses arising from flooding.
One of the most important steps to take to put you on a pathway to rebuilding your business after a hurricane or other severe weather event is to take proactive steps before you face such a situation. At the heart of such a proactive stance is undertaking an insurance audit to make sure you have the most comprehensive and necessary coverage and protection possible.
Don’t Delay in Retaining a Florida Business Insurance Claim Lawyer
One of the most important steps you need to take following a hurricane or other major weather event is to consult with an experienced Florida business insurance claim lawyer, like a member of the legal team at The Doan Law Firm. Time and again, business owners have more favorable claim settlements when they retain legal counsel directly after a storm.
Know Your Post-Storm Legal Rights
You also need to be versed in your post-storm legal rights. (This underscores why retaining a Florida business claim lawyer sooner rather than later is important.)
Key among these rights is that you do not have to respond to questions put forth by an insurance company before you consult with a lawyer. In fact, you should not answer questions from an insurance company and its representatives until you have legal representation. When the contact you, politely advise that you have retained or are in the process of hiring a lawyer. Your lawyer will make contact soon.
