Sinkhole Property Damage Claims

Sinkholes are a very common problem in Florida and can cause significant damage to homes, commercial property, automobiles, and personal property.  A sinkhole occurs under the surface of the land when the water dissolves minerals underground, resulting in a hidden, underground hole.  Florida has a high amount of sinkholes because many areas are made up of rock that is mostly carbonates such as limestone, as well as evaporites, such as salt and gypsum, which are easily dissolved in water.  The most common signs of sinkholes are cracks in floors, walls and pavement.

Some insurance policies require actual physical damage caused by sinkhole activity.  Other insurance policies require structural damage to a building, such as the foundation.  If your insurance company is has denied coverage or offered underpayment of a sinkhole damage claim, give us a call.  We will review your specific claim and policy and determine whether you are entitled to coverage under the policy.
