Hurricane Irma Insurance Lawyer

As you are aware, on September 10, 2017 Hurricane Irma struck southwest Florida. Many of you had insurance, including flood insurance, in effect when the hurricane hit. Many of you paid extra premiums to insurance companies for replacement coverage on your home. You filed your claims promptly and did all the insurance companies asked you to do, but many of you are still waiting for that check, the check which will finally allow you to attempt to return to normal, the way it was prior to September 10.

Burkett Law Office believes many insurance companies will not pay their insureds unless or until the insured files a lawsuit against them. A lawsuit forces the insurance company to finally turn their attention to your claim, and a lawsuit does not have to cost you a lot of money, or a large contingency fee paid to your attorney when it settles.

Burkett Law Office can help you get that settlement check promptly, without charging you the large contingency fee percentages many firms are charging hurricane victims. If you are like most people, when you finally do receive that insurance check you want it to be sufficient to make the necessary repairs to your property.  However, if your attorney is going to take a 30-40% contingency fee from that check, you still won’t be able to fix your roof or repair the drywall and floor damage to your home. Our strategy is to file suit quickly and force the insurance company to an early mediation, where the case can be resolved, with minimal cash outlays for attorney fees. Then, when the case settles, you keep 100% of the proceeds.
