“There’s no place like home,” observed Dorothy in cinema’s most famous film about a tornado (The Wizard of Oz).  Yet the more recent and most destructive tornadoes are touching down far from Kansas and have their sights set on Alabama, Georgia, and Florida.  Those states are experiencing a record-breaking number of severe tornadoes.   Climate change – with its hallmark warming atmosphere, additional moisture, and turbulent energy – creates conditions that are ripe for the formation of severe thunderstorms and tornadoes. 

Serious storms like tornadoes and hurricanes can cause a significant amount of damage in a very short period of time. The frequency and severity of storms will only increase as a result of climate change and global warming.  In fact, hurricane season is just a few weeks away.  Our property damage insurance lawyers work 365 days a year to help residential and commercial property owners enforce their contractual and statutory rights in claims involving storm damage. 

Tornadoes and tropical storms often result in billions of dollars in property damage.  Storms can damage a building or a home’s foundation, roof, walls, and landscaping as a result of fierce flooding, winds, flying objects, and hail.  For homeowners and business owners who experience property damage, filing a successful insurance claim is a crucial first step in the recovery process.
