I am a Hurricane Laura and Delta victim from Lake Charles, LA. After receiving NOTHING from my homeowners insurance company I was forced to get a lawyer. My health wouldn’t allow me to fight them myself. My attorney Cate Biggs was such a blessing. To have such good representation and having never met her was a relief. Her team was just as good as she was. I have never had a lawyer for anything like this and although I hope I never need another for this reason but if I do Long and Long will be representing me again. God bless them all.

We want to thank the team at Long & Long for helping us through our Hurricane claim. From the initial phone call we had with Long & Long, to our updates from our attorney, and everyone on the team in between; we were treated like royalty. We wish we had called sooner. We would recommend them to any of our friends and family. Thank you Long & Long!

Mike Dupre

My home was damaged in Hurricane Laura and like pretty much everyone in our area, the repairs were underestimated by my insurance company. Realizing I was out of my depth I contacted Long and Long for assistance in keeping the insurance company honest in holding up their end of our agreement, returning my home to its pre-damage condition. My attorney, Cate Biggs, and her whole team worked tirelessly on my behalf through this process and made sure I was "done right" by my insurance company. I hope I never need to work with Long and Long again, but should I ever find myself on the wrong [end] of an insurance companies' malfeasance, I will not hesitate to give them a call.

Chris T.

Our home was extremely damaged and flooded after Hurricane Sally. I was at a complete loss of how to navigate through the process of making spreadsheets or how to handle our flood and wind claims. Cate and her team did a wonderful job helping me. They handled everything and I was very pleased with the settlements they got for us. I would definitely recommend them!

Long & Long completely exceeded my expectations. I didn’t know that anyone needed a lawyer when you have an insurance claim, but you do. Long & Long explained everything that was owed to me under my fire insurance contract and made sure the insurance company paid it. Long & Long knocked it out of the park on my settlement.

Russel Vaughn

Bennett Long represented my company and me in a complex property damage and lost income claim. His knowledge and capabilities far exceeded all my expectations. The entire staff at Long and Long are professional and friendly. After handing over to them one of the most difficult business challenges I've faced, not once did I question their abilities or dedication to work towards what was best for me, the client. I am extremely happy with the outcome and shudder to think where I might be without their expertise and ability. Working with Long and Long is one of the best decisions I've ever made.

Do I Have a Case?

Having an insurance policy with tornado coverage means you’re entitled to compensation if a tornado destroys or damages your home or business. Unfortunately, many insurance companies look to settle disaster insurance claims for less than the policyholder truly deserves.

Common Reasons the Insurance Company May Deny Your Alabama Tornado Claim

Your insurance adjuster may claim that the damage is “cleanup,” which is an incidental cost and may result in denial.

Sometimes, an insurance adjuster will claim that the damage to your home was caused by another type of disaster, such as a flood or fire, and will not cover it.

Your insurance adjuster may challenge your original cost, repair cost, or replacement cost for your property damage.

Sometimes, a denial of your claim happens without any explanation, and that can be frustrating. If the insurance company is denying your claim, you deserve to understand why.

Steps To Take After an Alabama Tornado

The success of your insurance claim relies on the actions you take immediately following the storm. If your property was damaged from an Alabama tornado, take the following steps to protect yourself:

  1. Once you’re safe, contact your insurance company to make a claim immediately.
  2. Document everything before cleaning. You will need photographs and records of all the damaged property, including the exterior, interior, and surrounding areas. Try to be as detailed as possible.
  3. Be firm. The insurance company isn’t on your side and will try to minimize your claim. If this happens, our Alabama tornado insurance claim attorneys can help with your claim and advocate for you with the insurance company.

Frequently Asked Questions

Insurance companies are often overwhelmed with claims after a tornado. They want to close claims quickly and inexpensively. If you get a low offer from your insurance company, call the Disaster Insurance Claims Team at Long & Long Attorneys At Law to see how we can help.

Your insurance company, policy specifics, and level of damage to your home and business determine how much money you may receive from your policy. Your insurance adjuster will review the damage and estimate its cost, so it’s vital to keep your own records of the damage to ensure you get the money you’re entitled to recover.

You can look for contractors through business listings or recommendations from friends and family, but it’s important to make sure the insurance company approves your contractors. Keep invoices and records of which contractors you used, and make sure they’re licensed, bonded, and insured.

If you have tornado loss, your insurance policy may cover additional living expenses, such as hotel rooms, temporary dwellings, and temporary workspaces. Be sure to keep receipts to document your expenses to get reimbursement from the insurance company.

Disaster insurance coverage is complex and involves many different options and exclusions that may affect your Alabama tornado insurance claim. If you’re not sure whether some of your damage should be covered, contact our attorneys to review your policy and determine your policy exclusions so you can seek the money you’re entitled to collect.
