Fire Damage Statistics in Orlando

Orlando is not immune to the threat of home fires. According to the Florida Fire Incident Reporting System, there were numerous fires in the state in 2020, resulting in significant property loss and casualties. Understanding these statistics highlights the importance of being prepared and having a reliable legal partner to assist with fire damage claims.

Legal Framework for Fire Damage Claims in Florida

In Florida, the terms of the property owner's insurance policy and state insurance laws govern fire damage claims. Property owners must file a claim as quickly as possible after a fire, detailing the extent of the damage and providing necessary documentation. Florida law has strict deadlines for insurance companies to respond to claims, which a knowledgeable attorney can use to expedite the process.

Challenges in Fire Damage Claims

One of the most significant challenges in fire damage claims is accurately measuring the extent of the loss. Fire can cause structural, smoke, and water damage from firefighting efforts. An Orlando fire damage lawyer can help arrange an independent assessment, ensuring that damages are correctly documented and included in the claim.

We work with trusted assessors who provide accurate and unbiased evaluations of your damages. Insurance companies often try to limit payouts by underestimating damages or denying claims, citing non-compliance with policy provisions. Experienced property damage lawyers can dispute such assessments and fight for the rightful compensation owed to the property owner.
