Hurricanes are complicated storms that bring heavy rainfall, high winds, and extensive flooding. For farms and agricultural properties, the losses from a hurricane or tropical storm can affect almost every part of daily operations—from livestock to buildings to equipment. Unfortunately, these complicated storms can also result in a complicated recovery that might include working around major issues with the insurance company, including:
- Misunderstandings and disputes about coverage
Did You Get Complications and Excuses Instead of the Prompt Resolution You Hoped for After a Hurricane?
While you may have expected a quick resolution and recovery from the farm insurance you faithfully pay for, the reality is that many policyholders are disappointed by how the claims process works out.

Problems that are daunting for an individual policyholder—or even a large business—can often be resolved with the guidance of a legal professional who works through these kinds of problems for clients every day.
