What Should I Know About Hurricane Idalia?
Hurricane Idalia was an extremely dangerous major hurricane that made landfall over Florida's Gulf Coast on August 30, 2023
Its path impacted a wide central portion of the state, including cities such as Tampa and Orlando, and then moved close to the Carolina coastline.
In addition to its powerful winds, storm surges and flooding were an additional point of destruction from the fierce storm.
What Are Some Hurricane Resources I Can Use?
What Kind of Damage Did Hurricane Idalia Do?
Idalia thrashed Cuba with heavy rain, especially in the westernmost part of the island.
Authorities in the province issued a state of alert, and residents were evacuated to friends’ and relatives’ homes as authorities monitored the Cuyaguateje river for possible flooding. As much as 4 inches of rain fell in Cuba during the storm.
Idalia grew into a Category 3 hurricane as it approached Florida with devastating winds and rain. It left miles of severe damage, displaced many residents from their homes, and in worst cases, led to tragic deaths.
The major types of damage caused by Hurricane Idalia includes:
- Water and flood damage
- Wind damage
- Hurricane storm damage
If your home has been damaged in Hurricane Ian, make sure you get the compensation you deserve. Don’t let insurance adjusters deny you of the coverage you’re owed.
What Are My Options if Hurricane Idalia Caused Damage to My Property?
In Florida, you have just one year from the date the hurricane made landfall to give notice of the claim to the insurance company. Many websites may tell you that you have up to three years, but they are based on outdated information.
For usual property damage claims you have one year from the “date of loss,” but for hurricanes and other weather-related events you have one year from when the event made “landfall.”
It is important to file your insurance claim as quickly as possible to give yourself plenty of time to fight for compensation in case you end up in an insurance dispute.
If your property is covered under your insurance policy, you should not have an issue getting compensated after Hurricane Idalia. However, property insurance companies sometimes act in bad faith, refusing to pay for damage that should be covered under a policy. If you find yourself in this position, don’t hesitate to reach out to Morgan & Morgan. We can help fight for what you deserve.
What Do I Do if My Insurance Claim Is Denied After a Hurricane?
Unfortunately, many insurance companies try to take advantage of customers during a crisis like Hurricane Idalia in an attempt to avoid paying for damages. They often look for any reason to deny claims because they are experiencing what they call an “insurance crisis”—an overwhelming number of claims during a certain period of time. If your Hurricane Idalia insurance claim gets denied, however, you still have options.
Morgan & Morgan can review your case and can help to guarantee that any compensation you are legally owed will be paid out by the insurance provider. If your insurance company won’t pay, we’re prepared to take your case to court.
