Insurance Dispute Attorneys
Tornados cause roof damage, water issues like mold and rot, not to mention lost business for stores in Carteret County.

Some victims from last year’s tornado in Eastern North Carolina and Hurricane Irene are still waiting for their compensation. Having an insurance dispute attorney at Brent Adams & Associates work on your behalf during the stressful claim process will alleviate the strain of fighting for your money and allow you to focus on rebuilding your life and home.
Tornado Damage Insurance Problems
Tornado victims often face insurance issues like inadequate coverage. According to USAToday, more than half of the homes in the US are undervalued on insurance policies, which means there won’t be enough money paid to homeowners to cover rebuilding and repair costs. Flood damage is another issue that NC tornado victims may face. The Cateret County tornado did cause flooding in some areas, but usually standard insurance policies don’t cover flood damage. A separate flood insurance policy must be active in order to cover repairs.
