Common Property Damage Causes With Which A Property Damage Lawyer Can HelpCommon Property Damage Causes With Which A Property Damage Lawyer Can Help

Property damage can be expensive and, when involving insurance companies and other companies at fault, extremely convoluted. This is why you may need a property damage lawyer when your home experiences damages. Here are just a few common property damage types that proper legal representation can help with, ensuring you get the compensation you deserve in a timely manner.

1. Defects in Construction

Homes can often fall apart—not because of what happens to them after they’re built, but because of the way in which they were constructed. Oftentimes, construction companies will cut corners to save money and provide cheaper bids to development companies. The initial result is cheaper homes, but the end result is homes that fall apart from the inside out. If you have a home with significant or minor construction flaws, you may need to call a property damage lawyer.

A battle fought on multiple fronts, property damage claims that are the result of faulty construction and/or negligence from a construction company can become very complicated very quickly. A property damage lawyer can help you sue the right people while still getting the proper claim from your insurance company. And they can help you make the right moves at the right time to help you get the compensation you deserve from all parties at fault.

2. Wind Damage

Wind damage can often be quite contentious. Between claims of neglect compounding the damages and arguments that some damage was from previous incidents, many homeowners are left penniless after strong winds ruin their homes. With the right legal representation by an experienced property damage lawyer, however, you can ensure that your claim is heard, and that you have the proper documentation to prove you are not at fault through willful neglect.

3. Earthquakes & Floods

“Acts of God.” This is the term often used for natural disasters that can devastate entire communities and ruin lives. It is also a term that can help insurance companies welch on their responsibilities to their customers. Earthquakes and floods are often points of major contention between insurance companies and their customers, which is why you may need the legal representation of a property damage lawyer if you have suffered these types of damages. Experienced property damage lawyers can help build a case based on the proper precedents, helping ensure that your claim is heard, and helping you secure the money you are owed after a major disaster.

When it comes to damage to a property, the sources can be almost infinite. The ways in which your insurance company can avoid paying for these damages can also feel infinite, which is why it is important to contact a property damage lawyer to help you with your settlement.

If your home has suffered damages, call a property damage lawyer that has the legal experience and resources needed to go up against major insurance companies; they can help you make the case you need to start rebuilding your life after a disaster. Whether it’s an earthquake or mold due to previous neglect, let a property damage lawyer help you make the best case possible.
