While the Carolinas deal with the looming threat of Hurricane Florence, Florida is still dealing with the aftermath of Hurricane Irma a year after the storm caused billions of dollars worth of damage. Florida courts are still seeing an influx of lawsuits involving homeowners filing suit against their insurance company. In fact, over 2,000 lawsuits have been filed against state-run insurance company Citizens Property Insurance Corp. alone.
While damage such as downed power lines and fallen trees have been taken care of, it appears litigation resulting from Irma’s rampage is still well underway. In regards to Citizens, Irma has played a role in a nearly sixty percent year-over-year increase in lawsuits against the insurer. Citizens is considered a last resort insurer often chosen by homeowners in coastal areas. Here in South Florida, hundreds of lawsuits have been filed during the last month against insurance companies due to alleged unpaid claims involving Hurricane Irma.
