New Orleans Hurricane Insurance Attorney

Was Your Hurricane Insurance Claim Denied?

Louisiana is particularly vulnerable to devastating hurricanes and tropical storms due to its location and geography. In recent years, storms such as Hurricane Katrina and Hurricane Isaac have caused massive destruction to homes and businesses resulting in billions of dollars in damages and losses. When you have suffered from enormous losses, the last thing you need is for the insurance company to make the claims process frustrating and stressful.

Turn to LaHatte Law for guidance through your hurricane insurance claim. We have had extensive success resolving claims efficiently and recovering fair compensation for our clients' losses due to hurricane and wind damage, including for repairs, interior damage, and structural damage. Our law firm has prevailed in numerous insurance claims, even against national insurance companies. Let us fight on your behalf.

Fighting Against Bad Faith Insurance

Insurance companies are required to treat policyholders and handle their claims in a fair manner. But this rarely happens in most cases. Insurers are known to give policyholders the runaround by using dishonest and misleading tactics. If you have heard any of the following statements from your adjuster, call us immediately and we can resolve your bad faith insurance claim for you.

Insurance adjusters will often claim that:

  • The damage was caused by water, so it is considered flood damage and not covered under hurricane insurance
  • You only need to repair part of your roof, not the whole thing
  • You have preexisting damage not caused by the hurricane
  • Your insurance coverage has lapsed

Our law firm can help you by hiring an independent investigator and obtaining an estimate for all the losses and needed repairs caused by the hurricane. We can negotiate with adjusters for fair compensation and even litigate on your behalf if insurance companies refuse to be cooperative.

What To Do After Hurricane Damage

  • Take pictures of the aftermath, including all the damage to your property and structure. Make sure you have pictures to compare before the storm as well.
  • Make a list of all the items that were damages, including furniture and personal property
  • Keep a record of your communication with the insurance company
  • Make temporary repairs if necessary to prevent additional damage
  • Save all receipts and paperwork

If you are having difficulty recovering a reasonable settlement from your insurer, call LaHatte Law. Our New Orleans bad faith insurance lawyer is here to help.
