In some cases, weather damage can blow a roof or shingles off the roof or cause structural damage to the roof itself. Some willful or neglectful actions on the part of neighbors or workers in your neighborhood can cause damage, too. If your neighbor is having their property fixed and a crane from the work crew crashes into your roof, for example, you may need extensive repairs.

Toxic mold is a fungal growth that can grow in damp, warm environments. It can grow on any solid surface, including furniture, walls, floors, and inside walls, too. Unfortunately, South Florida has the right conditions for mold to flourish. It is warm most of the year and coastal areas, especially, tend to be humid. Major storms and flooding also affect the area, and these disasters can easily lead to mold.

Bed bugs are small, brown insects that feed on human blood. They often hide in bedding, clothing, and other soft surfaces, coming out at night to feed. They can cause painful bites and emotional distress. In some cases, bites can cause allergic reactions. Bed bugs also move with humans, so if someone is affected by bed bugs in a hotel, bed bugs may follow them home. Bed bugs breed quickly and a serious infestation can happen fast.

Common damages to homes can include fallen trees, broken windows, damaged siding, collapsed roofs, and more. Trailers and smaller buildings can be completely demolished. In addition to the personal injury which can occur with some damage, the aftermath can put properties at risk of mold, looting, and other problems and repairs are often lengthy and expensive. In some cases, the interior and personal belongings in your home can also be damaged. While homeowners’ insurance is meant to help property owners with repairs, it’s not always easy to get the money you deserve—and there may be other options available to you.

I had a lawyer on another case and I never spoke to the lawyer and I hated that I never knew what was going on in my case. Mr. Flaxman was in constant communication with me, explained everything to me, and his staff was really great too. My phone calls were always returned immediately. It was refreshing to be able to speak to my attorney personally. I would HIGHLY recommend Mr. Flaxman as an attorney to anyone who has been in an accident. Gloria
