If your home was damaged by Hermine:

  • Get in touch with your insurance provider ASAP

It is best to contact a Florida Hurricane & Storm Damage Attorney at Whittel & Melton immediately after any damage has occurred.

Insurance companies make their profits from denying or minimizing the claims of their customers.
