Florida has more tornados per 10,000 square miles than any other state in the US. That being said, tornados are a fact of life for most Floridians. When your home, property or business has been destroyed or damaged by a tornado, your insurance company has a duty to provide you with the help you need. Attorney Michael D. Cerasa understands how individuals, families, and business owners struggle with the loss of their property and possessions, and the feelings of displacement and uncertainty that follow the devastation of a tornado.

Seek representation before appraisal
Mr. Cerasa is aware of the tricks insurance adjusters use to undervalue a claim. It is a central part of an adjuster’s training to make sure their insurance company pays out the least amount possible. For this reason, it is in your best interest to hire a tornado and hurricane damage attorney before the damage appraisal. Cerasa will represent you during the appraisal, ensuring that your appraisal is fair and that all damage is properly accounted for. For businesses, these damages may include loss of business income, loss of business documents, and other business interruption damages.
