Your Sink Hole Accident Lawyer In Spring Hill
Sinkholes can be devastating. You will first need to know that you will be confronted with a series of questions, tests and expenses you have probably never thought about before. It’s going to be (or already is) disruptive. However, all is not lost. There are solutions.
If you find faults in your driveway, cracks in your foundation, flooring, or steps, you may be victim to sinkhole activity below your house or business. Sink holes can be very dangerous, not only for you, but for visitors on your property. They occur naturally all over Florida in the aquifers below us, leaving everyone vulnerable to their potential disruption and destruction.
Often, they expand, grow larger, sucking more and more soil and whatever sits on that soil down into them. In a matter of hours or even minutes they can grow 40 to 60 feet deep and wide. Fortunately, “collapse” sinkholes are the rarest kind of sinkholes in Florida. That said, they’re statistically unavoidable.
Florida requires insurance companies to provide compensation for sinkhole damages, but often, insurers will claim the damage done is not due to sinkhole activity, but to some other factor, and will try and settle your claim the cheapest way possible. Though your insurance adjuster should have your best interest in mind, it isn’t his or her job to protect you from everything.
