Sinkholes and Property Damage
Legal Help with Insurance Claims
In addition to the many damaging issues that sinkholes can cause to a dwelling, commercial property or other building, the physical properties surrounding such buildings themselves can also be seriously harmed. With an economy already challenged by sagging property values, it is unwise to allow such an investment to be subjected to further devaluation by sinkhole development. The good news is that you are well-protected under state statutes that require mandatory sinkhole damage coverage by insurance companies. Unfortunately, obtaining the level of service and payout you deserve from an insurer can be a difficult thing to come by. A Tampa sinkhole attorney can help you push for the immediate repair and compensation you need.
Since sinkholes remain hidden in most cases - rather than reaching the point of total collapse - it can also be frighteningly easy to overlook the signs of damage they create on your property. In your regular maintenance and upkeep efforts, a keen eye should be kept towards such occurrences as growing depressions in the ground, depressions in nearby property, standing water, cracks in concrete areas such as pool decks and driveways, pavement separation, loose soil around trees and utility poles, and circular patches of wilting plants. Any of these could be indicators that a sinkhole is developing on or near your property, and not only are they obvious cosmetic eyesores, but they are clear signs of far worse impending perils. Make no delay in contacting your insurance company for an immediate geologic survey and in procuring dedicated legal counsel.
