Atlantic hurricane season runs from June 1st through November 30th, with stronger and more intense storms each year. If you reside or own a home, commercial property or business in a hurricane-prone area, it’s important to know your options before the storm.
We can schedule a time for you to speak with one of our experienced storm-damage attorneys to discuss your options and explain your rights.

Thunderstorms, a dynamic atmospheric occurrence, bring forth a medley of hazards. Lightning strikes can damage homes and spark fires, while powerful winds have the capability to damage roofs, trees, and power lines. The consequential heavy rainfall can lead to flooding, impacting both residential homes, commercial properties and essential infrastructure.
Microbursts can also develop during severe thunderstorms. Sometimes an updraft is so strong, it suspends large amounts of these droplets and hailstones in the upper portions of the thunderstorm. As a result, the core plummets to the ground. As it hits the ground it spreads out in all directions.
The location in which the microburst first hits the ground experiences the highest winds and greatest damage. Wind speeds in microbursts can reach up to 100 mph, or even higher, which is equivalent to an EF-1 tornado! Winds this high can cause major damage to homes and other structures and level hundreds of trees.
Tornadoes, with their ferocious winds, have the capacity to inflict severe harm on various structures, from residential homes, commercial properties and businesses to critical infrastructure. These swirling forces can rip roofs off buildings, topple walls, and hurl debris, culminating in widespread devastation.
Over the past decade, the National Weather Service in Melbourne, Florida has received almost 300 hail reports, with the average size being about one inch in diameter, or quarter-sized. Hail forms in thunderstorms with intense updrafts. The updraft forces rain high into the thunderstorm where the air is below freezing. The rain drops and freezes becoming ice. Property damage from these storms could include shattered windows, significant auto damage and roof damage.
Flooding is one of Florida’s most frequent hazards. It is a coast to coast threat that can occur at any time of the year. There are different reasons a community may flood; storm surge, river flooding, or heavy rainfall. Low-lying or poorly drained areas can also increase a community’s flood risk. Floods, in their wake, cause significant property damage, particularly in flood-prone areas, and contribute to the erosion of soil, further jeopardizing roads and bridges.
In cases where storm damage occurs, or when insurance claims are denied, delayed or underpaid, the adept attorneys at HL Law Group stand ready to advocate aggressively.
