Living in Florida means facing the constant threat of fires, a challenge that homeowners and business owners must confront throughout the year. When the unthinkable happens, and your home or business falls victim to fire damage, the toll it takes can be both emotional and financial. At EC Law Counsel, we are dedicated to assisting the people of Florida as they navigate the intricate process of filing a fire damage claim.
Understanding Fire Damage Coverage in Florida
If your homeowner’s insurance policy includes coverage for fire damage, you should be covered following a destructive fire. A typical policy may cover:
- The cost to repair or rebuild your property and other structures like garages or sheds
- Replacement or repair of personal belongings damaged or lost in the fire
- Costs for temporary living expenses if you must relocate during repairs
The maximum coverage for fire damage, as well as the deductible you’re responsible for, will depend on your individual policy details. It’s critical to remember that every policy may differ, and our team at EC Law Counsel can help you understand your coverage.
Post-Fire Steps to Take
After ensuring the safety of all occupants, there are several steps you should take after a fire:
- Document all damage: Take photos and videos to provide a comprehensive view of the damage sustained.
- Protect your property: Try to prevent further damage, which may involve boarding up windows or placing tarps over damaged roofing.
- Secure your belongings: If possible, remove valuables to a safer location.
- Contact an experienced fire damage claim lawyer: The EC Law Counsel team can help review your insurance policy, guide you through the claim process, and obtain a fair and just compensation for you.
