The U.S. National Hurricane Center now projects that Hurricane Ian will make landfall on the West Coast of Florida or the panhandle as a catastrophic Category 4 hurricane. While the precise path of what is expected to me a mammoth storm is not 100 percent certain, forecasters are unified in their belief that Hurricane Ian will slam into the West Coast of the Sunshine State of the panhandle by midday on Thursday. At this time, the National Hurricane Center believes that what it anticipates being a devastating hurricane is most likely to slam into the West Coast.

The National Hurricane Center has issued an advisement for residents all of the state of Florida to have a hurricane plan in place. At the heart of such a plan is evacuation at some juncture between now and Wednesday as the exact path of the storm becomes clearer.

Florida cities like Tampa are already under a hurricane watch. The Governor of Florida has issued a state of emergency for the entire state. According to the Governor, Hurricane Ian is expected to be a “major disaster.” What this means is that loss of life is anticipated and massive property damage – both residential and business – definitely is in the offing.

Business Property Damage Insurance Claims

When a weather event like Hurricane Ian hits the state of Florida, property damage sustained by Sunshine State businesses can be massive. Business property losses can be in the billions of dollars.

If you are a business owner, you need to not only prepare to protect your business premises as best as you can – and in a safe manner – but you need to brace yourself for dealing with your business property insurance company. A grim reality is that time and time again, Florida business insurance companies will engage in improper and unfair claim settlement practices in the aftermath of a disastrous weather event.

You put yourself in the best position to accomplish this vital objective by retaining an experienced, dedicated Florida hurricane property damage lawyer like a member of the legal team at The Doan Law Firm at (407) 289-0000.

Hurricane Ian Business Interruption Insurance

Oftentimes, immediately prior, during, and then after a major weather event like Hurricane Ian, a business is not able to operate. Indeed, depending on issues like property damage, utility loss, and other issues arising from a hurricane, a Florida business might be shuttered for a more extended period of time.
