Tornado damage can be devastating and may completely demolish a home or business. Tornado damage can also result in damage to a home that renders it a complete loss. Most homeowners policies cover damage from tornadoes, which are usually classified as a high wind event. This can help a family pay for damage sustained during this devastating weather condition, including repairing damage, replacing roofs, and paying for damaged personal property.

Frequently Asked Questions
As soon as you can do so. Most insurance policies require you to give notice of damage within days of the claim. It is imperative that as soon as any damage occurs, you should immediately contact your insurance company to open a claim. Never delay in any claim, especially a tornado damage claim.
It depends on what policy and coverage that you have. Since most policies classify tornado damage as wind damage, you may be entitled to get compensation for repairs to your property, replacements for your property, like the roof or broken windows, and the damage to your personal property.
Nothing upfront. In some instances where an insurance company improperly denies coverage or fails to honor a claim and you successfully challenge the insurance company in court, Florida law requires the insurance company to pay for your attorney’s fees. In other ircumstances, we may agree to accept your claim on a contingency fee agreement. This means that we only get paid after we recover compensation for your insurance claim.
