When you’ve lost everything in a tornado, the very last thing that you have the time or energy to deal with is playing games with the insurance adjusters and insurance companies to obtain the payout that you are entitled to under your policy. You’ve paid your premiums all of these years just for this reason – a catastrophe that swirls your life into turmoil just as unpredictably as a funnel cloud.
It seems that after every catastrophe, many law firms claim to be “hurricane, tornado and/or fire lawyers” primarily representing policyholders. A close look at these firms usually proves they are typically advertising for injured parties to sue policyholders who own a business or home like yours, which was damaged by a tornado.
You might also see firms that claim to only represent businesses and homeowners for damage incurred as result of a catastrophe or damage to your property covered by insurance.
Questions that you should have for those “tornado lawyers”
You are never obligated to hire a lawyer, but you do have an obligation to yourself to ask the right questions to be sure you hire the right one. This is the time to put yourself first. Ask how they were trained in handling insurance property claims. Ask where they learned the intricacies perfected and used by high-level property adjusters to limit the amount paid on property claims. Ask where they adjusted claims before or during their law school career, and how long they were employed as an adjuster. These are the all-important questions that will tell you whether this attorney is the real deal, or whether they’re someone dabbling in insurance claims law for quick cash.
When the answers you receive to your questions offer evidence that they don’t have a lengthy insurance claims career to back their legal experience, you need to find one who does or suffer at the hands of the inexperienced. You deserve better. You deserve Gene Warhurst and the decades of claims experience behind Warhurst Law.
