Tampa Sinkhole Lawyer
Understanding the Damages Caused by Sinkholes
Florida is well known for its abundance of water and areas such as the everglades and lakes. The geologic structure of large areas of Florida have limestone cavities that can be affected by many factors, including manmade intrusion as well as natural weather conditions. This can lead to these cavities dissolving, causing a collapse of the surrounding terrain. Many property owners in the Tampa area have experienced damage to their properties and suffered property losses due to this sinkhole phenomenon, with possibly thousands of dollars in damages to their homes and in other related property damages. If you have experienced such a loss, a Tampa sinkhole attorney from Givens Givens Sparks can assist you in pursuing a claim through your insurance company in order to obtain compensation for your losses.
