Handling Hurricane Claims In Mississippi

Since Hurricane Katrina, homeowners insurance companies have been deluged with claims for coverage and have denied coverage for many legitimate claims. At Owen & Owen, we have represented numerous clients who faithfully paid their insurance policy premiums, or whose insurance lapsed unintentionally, but whose commercial or residential hurricane claims were denied by their insurance provider.

If you have been denied coverage for all or a portion of your damages and feel you may need to undertake bad faith insurance litigation, contact Owen & Owen today.

Wind Vs. Water Disputes

Many insurance companies deny hurricane claims on the grounds that, while their policies are meant to cover wind damage, home flooding is not covered and so water damage doesn’t apply. Though they are likely aware that most Mississippi homes were damaged or destroyed by wind before the tidal water surge reached land, they stand to save a tremendous amount of money simply by putting up this false defense.

In this legal climate, most homeowners are left with only one option: to hire a Mississippi hurricane claims attorney who will protect their legal rights.
