Property damage can be devastating no matter the natural disaster. However, most homeowners and business owners, do not realize how damaging wind can actually be. Wind can cause tornado like damage and uproot trees when the speeds become high enough. The results can be devastating. High winds can rip roofs off of homes and result in the walls collapsing. Wind damage will result in devastation to the outside of the home as well as to the contents within the home. Other common damages associated with high velocity winds include: trees falling on the property, fences destroyed and leaking windows. The insurance company may determine that the damage to your property caused by the wind does not meet your coverage as defined if your benefits. Do not settle for this information. Remember the insurance adjuster and the insurance agent work for the insurance company. They are employees of the insurance company and have the insurances best interest in mind. It is imperative for you to take charge and contact Coffey Trial Law to represent you in this matter. We, here at Coffey Trial Law will fight for you, by contacting the insurance company and getting you the settlement you deserve to replace your losses incurred.
There is a term referred to as Gustnado. A Gustnado is defined as gusts of wind that results in property damage. This type of event is covered under homeowners or business owners insurance policies. If there is additional water damage, it will not be covered unless it occurs as a direct result of the wind damage. For example, if the wind rips the roof off of the home and then it begins to rain and the property inside the home is damaged then that could be covered by the wind policy because without the wind the rain would not have entered the home. If rain enters the home in a manner other than directly related to the wind damage, then it will not be covered and can result in additional losses incurred.
These policies can be complex, and the insurance companies can be difficult to deal with; therefore, it is in your best interest to contact Coffey Trial Law and hire an attorney that will directly fight for your settlement.

It is imperative to take pictures and videos of all your property after the wind damage so that you can provide irrefutable damage to the insurance company. This will help to prove your case.
