It’s been three weeks since Hurricane Irma wreaked havoc across the state of Florida.

According to Russel Lazega, an insurance litigation attorney and author of several of Florida’s leading legal texts on insurance law:

·       Tens of thousands of Floridians are still waiting for help with damage to homes and businesses

·       People are still waiting for trees to be cleared from the streets in their neighborhood even though their city may have the resources available

Faith Based Events

·       There’s a shortage of available and qualified contractors to quickly dry up, clean up and repair their homes

·       Appointments with insurance adjusters may be weeks away

·       Insurance payments may be even further away

Lazega has represented thousands of consumers at war with their insurance companies and has also been general counsel to an insurance company.  So he knows too well what homeowners and businesses will be dealing with in the weeks and months ahead.

This includes:

1) What clean-up and repair services are covered;

2) What services insurers and agencies are paying for and what they’re denying; and

3) Tips and remedies available to you to speed things up if the clean-up and claim process isn’t moving as it should.
