Rain, Wind and Flood Claims - Destin, Sandestin, 30A South Walton

Our panhandle area was recently hit with one of the most severe wind, rain and violent weather events ever recorded.  Our senior partner, David B. Pleat, has 30 years of experience representing clients with insurance claims.  A consultation with Mr. Pleat on your insurance/flood/rain damage claim is free and he charges a contingency fee if there is a successful recovery.  

If there is no recovery on your insurance claim, there is no fee to pay our firm. In most cases, if you are successful in recovery against your insurance carrier, your attorney’s fees are recoverable from the insurance company pursuant to Florida law. 

There are important steps to take to preserve your claim and action should be taken immediately to make sure your claim will be fully realized.
