You deserve more, and our Homeowners Insurance Lawyers can help you pursue the financial recovery you deserve from your insurance provider.

If we do not win your case, you do not pay for our services.
How Frequently Are Homeowner Claims Submitted Each Year?
Each year, each state and each policyholder’s overall insurance claims will differ. Hurricanes and other natural disasters like sinkholes and hailstorms that surprise our community throughout the year can lead to costly damage. This is exactly why insurance exists, so we are prepared for the worst and protected from the fallout.
According to the Insurance Information Institute, throughout the U.S. approximately:
- One in 15 insured homes file a claim each year
- One in 40 insured homes has a wind or hail damage claim each year
- One in 50 insured homes has water damage claims each year
- One in 250 insured homes have theft damage claims each year
- One in 325 insured homes have a fire and lightning damage claim
- One in 750 homeowners’ policies has a liability claim related to the cost of lawsuits for bodily injury or property damage that the policyholder or family members cause to others
Our insurance claims attorneys know that you have coverage to protect your best interests if or when something goes wrong.
The bigger question is, will your insurance company be there to provide the financial support you need as it is outlined in your policy?
How Much Homeowners’ Insurance Coverage Do I Need?
The amount of home insurance coverage you need depends on multiple factors, including the cost of your home, your possessions, where you live, and the risks your property faces. Most of the states and territories our homeowners insurance attorneys cover are often subjected to hurricanes and wildfires, so it is important that property owners amend their coverage to fit those types of natural disasters, so they are covered if the very worst happens.
If you need help understanding exactly what type of coverage you need, talk to our skilled homeowners insurance claims attorneys today to learn more about being proactive, instead of reactive.
Can I Change My Property Damage Insurance Policy At Any Time to Ensure All My Assets Are Covered?
Yes! You should assess your policy and coverage options annually, so you can ensure all your assets are covered through a risk assessment exercise that allows you to understand what happens if the unthinkable actually happens.
That can include someone getting hurt at your home or understanding what happens if a vehicle crashes into your garage. When it comes to insurance coverage, you can never ask too many questions, or reevaluate your coverage needs too often.
Our property damage lawyers know that the worst time to learn your home is not covered by your policy is after the damage occurs.
Contact our property insurance lawyers can help you understand what your policy means, what is covered, what is not, and how to make up for the coverage you need.
Why Would My Insurance Company Refuse To Pay My Homeowner Claim?
Insurance companies collect tens of billions of dollars each year on homeowner policies alone. The cost of your coverage and your prompt payments lead to the assumption that when you need them, your insurance provider is going to step up and pay your claim.
While that would be a reasonable expectation, it is often a misconception. Insurance companies profit from your premiums and increase their revenue by rejecting claims outright, or partially paying for the damage your home endured because they can.
Insurance company representatives have the power of a large corporation, bureaucracy, and in-house attorneys behind them 24/7 which are no match for the average consumer.
The small print of your policy and the paperwork necessary to appease the insurance company’s claim processes is overwhelming and exhausting, which is exactly how they want it. You will tire of fighting before they do. And they are counting on that being the case.
If you believe your insurance carrier is delaying, undervaluing, or denying your claim, contact our homeowner insurance disputes lawyers today for help. You do not have to take the insurance company’s word for what your home’s damages are worth. We can help set the record straight.
Why Do I Need a Public Adjuster to Evaluate My Home’s Damages?
When our clients file property insurance claims, they are typically met by the insurance company’s claims adjuster who will review the damage and estimate the costs to fix the issues.
The adjuster is an employee of the insurance company, so it is in his or her best interest to undervalue your claim, so the employer does not lose money. While that may not be fair, it is true.
You deserve to have an unbiased third party assess your damages where your best interests are put first. At the Morgan Law Group, P.A., our property damage claims attorneys are policyholder advocates who will fight for the best outcome for each of our clients.

Frequently Asked Questions for Our Homeowners’ Insurance Claims Attorneys
Do I Need to Keep an Inventory of the Possessions in My Home?
Yes! Creating a home inventory list is one of the smartest things you can do to ensure your property and its value are accounted for in case it is damaged or stolen. A home inventory will also help you and your agent determine how much coverage you actually need, so you are protected from all angles.
Does My Mortgage Lender Get to Decide Which Homeowner’s Insurance Provider I Use?
The policyholder – you – decides which insurer and coverage is right for you. If your coverage meets the minimum requirements set by your mortgage company, you can make the decisions.
Am I Required to Have Homeowner’s Insurance?
By law, you are not required to have home insurance, but banks do require it as a condition of your mortgage. However, homeowner’s insurance can help you protect yourself from enormous financial loss in case disaster strikes, so it is important to have coverage that surpasses your overall property’s value.
Does My Homeowner’s Insurance Policy Cover Personal Injuries That Occur on My Property?
Personal liability coverage can help protect you if you are found responsible for bodily injury to someone or damage to their property. Accidents happen, and if they occur on your property, you can be held liable for the associated costs, like medical expenses or lawsuits. Personal liability coverage can pay for those expenses, so you are not left paying for them out of pocket.
Will My Homeowner’s Insurance Coverage Pay My Expenses If I Cannot Live in My Home During Its Repairs?
Yes. If your home is unfit for habitation due to a covered loss, your insurance coverage should help pay for additional living expenses — such as food and a hotel — while repairs are being made.
What Can I Do To Lower My Homeowners’ Insurance Premium?
Depending on who your insurance coverage is with, they may have multiple options for you to lower your premium. Some insurance companies provide discounts for policyholders who install qualifying smart home devices or by combining their home and auto coverage.
Will Filing a Homeowners’ Insurance or Property Claim Affect My Premium?
There are several factors unique to your area, coverage requirements, and claims history that go into whether your premiums will increase. Talk to an insurance provider to learn more about what factors will impact the cost of your policy.
How Long Will It Take For My Insurance Claim To Be Settled?
The honest answer is, that it depends on how long it takes to repair/rebuild/replace their home and possessions after a large loss. The more complete your insurance claim is when you submit it, the smoother the process will be. That is why it is important to discuss your claim with an insurance claims attorney before you get started, so the insurance company has little reason to delay, undervalue, or deny your claim.
