Let Us Fight for Everything You May Be Owed for Hurricane Damages
If you have been the victim of a hurricane, you may be overwhelmed with your to-do list. Topping that important to-do list should be making a property damage claim with your insurance company. You should be compensated for damages incurred to everything covered in your policy – whether the damage occurred to your property (home and other structures), business, or farm.
Unfortunately, insurance companies do not always pay what you think they should pay. Many of our clients come to us for assistance with their hurricane damage insurance claims because they find themselves on the losing end of a battle with highly-trained, skillful insurance company adjusters, lawyers, and other well-coached professionals. We have attorneys with more than 30 years of experience negotiating with insurance companies – and we’ve seen instances when some insurance companies seem to delay in giving a client a fair offer until a lawyer gets involved.
Insurance companies are typically for-profit businesses. The less they pay you, the more they profit.
That is not wrong, it’s just business. What is wrong is the use of some of the tactics we have seen employed by some insurance companies trying to limit what they pay their claimants after a hurricane. However, we negotiate with insurance companies every day at the Law Offices of James Scott Farrin, and some of our employees even used to work for insurance companies. We know firsthand about many of these tactics. And we know how to fight them.
How Can We Help You Fight for Your Full Property Damage Claim?
After a hurricane, there is often chaos, confusion, and much work to be done – by the hurricane victims and by the insurance adjusters. Our attorneys have guided other clients through the claims process, and they have successfully fought for compensation of harms and damages suffered.1 If you feel your property damage claim has been undervalued, misclassified, or unfairly denied, give us a call at 1-866-900-7078 to get a free evaluation.
Let us fight for everything you may be owed for hurricane damages.
Insurance adjusters may be overworked trying to evaluate the many claims that come in after a hurricane, and mistakes can be made. If you think the settlement offer you’re getting from the insurance company is not fair or is taking too long, contact us. Or, if you simply don’t have the time to deal with the hassle, paperwork, and bureaucracy involved in the recovery process, we can help.
We will evaluate your case – at no cost to you – and let you know if we think we can make a difference. If we accept your hurricane property damage claim, we will review your insurance policies and try to help you understand them.
Or, if we think you’d be better off continuing to negotiate on your own, we’ll let you know that, too.
Impartial Professionals Value Accurate Property Damage Assessments
We have access to professionals throughout the Carolinas who can impartially assess your property damages. Let’s say, for example, your home or business sustained wind and/or water damage as a direct result of a hurricane. As needed, we are able to call on independent appraisers, mold and water damage experts, engineers, contractors, and others for an independent, impartial estimate of what your damages are. It’s helpful to have an attorney in your corner who can hire any necessary professionals on your behalf.

We Work Where You Live
Our 20+-year-old firm has recovered in excess of $1.2 billion1 total for more than 50,000 clients since 1997. We have achieved national and state-wide recognition, but we are local first and foremost. With 16 offices across North Carolina and one in South Carolina, we too have felt the local devastation of hurricanes.
During Hurricane Florence, our offices were affected, particularly in New Bern, Fayetteville, Greenville, and Charlotte. After that storm, we worked hard to try to help those who needed it most. One of our attorneys traveled to Wilmington to help chainsaw trees and other vegetation to help homeowners return home. Our staff raised more than $5,000 worth of goods and funding for Hurricane Florence victims because giving back to our communities is a top firm priority.
We Have Experience
Our legal team is experienced. We have lawyers who have handled property damage claims – large and small – for years.
- Attorney and Shareholder Gary Jackson played a leading role in the nationally-publicized synthetic stucco lawsuit victory.3 He represented over 300 homeowners, several commercial businesses, and many homeowner associations in those cases, recovering over $25 million.1
- Our litigation team is led by Attorney and Shareholder Hoyt Tessener, who has handled cases throughout the U.S.3and has been responsible for verdicts and settlements of over $90 million.1
Many of our 200+ James Scott Farrin team members have years of experience in their fields. We’ve been fighting insurance companies on behalf of our clients by negotiating and litigating since 1997. We use technology, data analytics, and determination to try to uncover information and get results – fast.
Get a Free Case Evaluation
We will not take your hurricane property damage case unless we believe we may be able to get you a larger settlement from the insurance company than you are able to get on your own. We work on a contingency fee basis, which means that we collect a percentage of the total amount only if we recover for you. That’s right – you do not pay an attorney’s fee unless we recover for you. 2
