Did you know that an estimated $3.5 million is spent every year on sinkhole claims by home insurance companies in Florida?
Major damage to personal property and buildings can be caused by sinkholes – some occur naturally while others as a result of human activity. Sinkholes occur in all 50 states of the United States and are particularly common in Texas, Pennsylvania, Kentucky, Florida, Missouri, Tennessee, and Alabama. According to the USGS, about 20 percent of U.S. land is susceptible to sinkholes. However, Florida has the most sinkhole cases that result in complete loss of property and even fatalities.
In Florida, it is common for insurance companies to provide insurance coverage to homeowners that also include sinkholes. When it comes to repairing a home that is affected by a sinkhole, the cost can be extensive. Filing for a claim by yourself is not recommended because the settlements offered by the insurance companies are not equitable settlements by any means. You need help with your insurance claim. However, by bringing in a public adjuster, you can receive the fair settlement you deserve.
