New Orleans Flood Insurance Claims
With frequent threats of rising rivers and storms in the springtime and Hurricanes in the summer, Louisiana residents are often faced with making flood insurance claims. There are several steps you can take to improve your chances of making a successful claim. The first step is to make sure you purchase a separate flood insurance policy well before the flood occurs. Most Homeowners’ policies do not cover flood damage.
Your official claim for damages is called a Proof of Loss. The Proof of Loss must be fully completed, signed, and in the hands of your insurance company within 60 days after the loss occurs.
To support your claim for flood damage, be sure to photograph and/or videotape both the inside and outside of the premises (both structure and content) to show any damage, flooding, and any evidence of the height of the water.
New Orleans Insurance Claim Lawyer Review
To describe the Lavis Law Firm as Amazing , would be an understatement! I was in an auto accident and even though the other person admitted fault, the insurance company still tried to escape full responsibility. My experience started off with his friendly phone staff . And one of the best parts is that I could speak to “HIM” personally ! He was attentive, thorough, informative, easy to talk to and extremely understanding. He was sure to keep in contact with me at every stage of the case, either by phone , email, even text. There was not one question unanswered or decision made regarding my case without a full explanation and my approval. He even offered to meet me at whatever location was easiest for me, including my home. I was referred to him and I definitely see why . From start to finish, he was a major advocate for me. I know that I was not his only client but he sure makes you feel like it . I HIGHLY RECOMMEND The Lavis Law Firm! I hope not to need an attorney again for anything but if I happen to, there’s only one number to call . I will forever be grateful for Mr. Charles Lavis. Zyiesha M-C July 2019 ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
