“Megan is on top of her game! She handled my claim impeccably. She went out of her way to always keep me updated through texts, e-mails, and phone calls when she could have easily passed that on through her secretary or an assistant. She is truly a standout in her profession.”

Hurricane Loss Recovery Process in Louisiana

The damages that New Orleans families suffer after hurricanes can be immense. And rebuilding takes time and considerable finances.

Here are some of the types of damages that hurricane insurance can cover:

  • Fallen trees and branches
  • Broken windows
  • Water damage and leaks
  • Flood damage
  • Contaminated water due to unsanitary conditions
  • Broken or ruined possessions
Even if you’ve purchased hurricane insurance, and faithfully paid your premium, your insurance agency might still come up with excuses to pay you less than your covered damages are worth. In some cases, your insurance company may even deny you coverage completely.

That’s where hurricane insurance lawyers come in. Filing an insurance claim after hurricane damage can be a complex and intimidating process. We’ll go to bat for you and help you decide on the best strategy to get an adequate settlement.

Insurance Company Tactics in Louisiana

As anyone who’s lived in New Orleans knows, hurricanes can cause widespread damage affecting hundreds of thousands of people. When overwhelmed with so many claims for compensation, insurance companies tend to focus on their bottom line, rather than on helping their customers.

Here are some of the tactics insurance companies may use to avoid compensating you for your damages:

  • Failing to return your calls
  • Prolonging the investigation of your damage
  • Asking you to repeat information or fill out more paperwork
  • Underestimating the value of your property damage
  • Ignoring the terms of your policy

At Kiefer & Kiefer, our three generations of experience means we’re familiar with all of these underhanded tactics. We know how to deal with your insurance company and make sure you don’t get taken advantage of.

And if your insurance company still won’t settle, we’ll take them to court and win you the compensation you deserve.
