Fire Damage Claims in Florida

Get a Miami Homeowner’s Insurance Lawyer on Your Side

Nobody expects to have their home and possessions damaged in a sudden fire. From brush fires to blazes started by unattended candles or faulty wiring, these disasters can cause extensive devastation and displace families in the blink of an eye. As such, many Americans prepare for these types of emergencies by purchasing fire coverage as a part of their comprehensive homeowner’s insurance policies.

Filing a Claim After a Fire

One of the most important steps towards securing a fair recovery after a fire is ensuring that you have sufficient evidence to back up your claim. While it may be impractical to keep a record of absolutely everything of value in your home, it is important you make an effort to document and photograph items of significant worth. This will not only serve as a list of your possessions, but it will also provide important evidence of your possessions’ condition and location within your home.

Be sure to take detailed photographs of the following:

  • Expensive electronics
  • Computers
  • Musical instruments
  • Appliances
  • Automobiles stored in the garage
  • Family heirlooms
  • High-value furniture
  • Jewelry

In addition to having photographs of your possessions, it is important you photograph any and all areas that were damaged by fire. Our attorneys can help you put together a strong claim and handle all negotiations with your insurance company on your behalf.

Backed by numerous positive client testimonials, we have what it takes get you on the path to recovery.
