Hurricanes Laura & Delta Property Damage Insurance Claims Lawyer

On August 27, 2020, Hurricane Laura packing 150 m.p.h. Winds, flash floods, and heavy rainfall hit the western coast of Louisiana at Cameron. Hurricane Laura’s track led it through through Lake Charles, Sulphur, Moss Bluff, and DeRidder onto north Louisiana, causing loss of life, injuries, and extensive property damage. Insured losses from Hurricane Laura are estimated to be in the range of about $12 Billion.  Shortly thereafter, on  October 9, 2020, Hurricane Delta came ashore causing extensive property damage.  Hurricane Delta’s track led it through Creole, Grand Chenier, Jennings, Welch, Iowa, Lake Charles  and north from there on into Alexandria.

Homeowners and Businesses now face the difficulty of cleaning up and rebuilding during the COVID-19. Unfortunately, the storm may not be their worst nightmare. Many will soon find their Homeowners and Business Owners Policies are not accepting responsibility under the insurance policies the companies have both written and sold. Moreover, these insurers frequently pay too little on the home, business, or auto claim because the insurer has underestimated the cost of repair Hurricane Laura Property Damage and Hurricane Delta Property Damage and have limited the amount of damage the property has sustained. We understand your concern and know how you feel. We have seen the same thing happen hundreds and hundreds of times to other policyholders over the years before hiring us to handle their Hurricanes Katrina, Rita, Gustave & Ike claims.  We have seen the difference a Hurricane Lawyer can make.


“I understand how to deal with your insurance company. I know you are confused, upset and tired. The money insurance companies will attempt to settle for will not nearly be enough to repair your home, restore your business, replace your contents and pay your living expenses. Insurance companies, even your own, are looking out for themselves first.  The more they pay you, the less they make in profit.  Let me assist you in getting the fair compensation you deserve.”  Charles

Slow Service? Excuses? Denial of Your Hurricane Property Damage Insurance Claim?

Do not accept slow service, excuses, or denials of your storm claims. If the insurance company refuses to pay the full amount owed, refuses to negotiate or engage in continuing negotiations over the value of your damage, and fails to continue to respond promptly to your questions, they may have broken the bad faith laws.

Your insurance company is required to timely pay your claims for all of your damages covered by the policy.Your insurance policy may provide coverage for physical damage to your property, extra expenses incurred, and lostbusiness income. If you have Disaster Mortgage Protection, the insurer is required to timely pay your monthly mortgage, reimburses your structural deductible, and can help pay down your mortgage balance in the event of certain damages are sustained in a hurricane, flood, or other disasters

Our Clients Feedback

My homeowner’s carrier was not willing to pay me for damages sustained to my home by Hurricane Katrina. I contacted Mr. Lavis after seeing an advertisement. After meeting with him and discussing my problem, he helped me to get the monies I deserved from my insurance company. I would recommend Charles Lavis to anyone having problems with their insurance company. Thank you Charles for all your help.
Edile Rochon

Homeowner, New Orleans

I sought the services of Attorney Charles Lavis because I was getting nowhere with my homeowner’s insurance company. It had been approximately six months since the Hurricane and they were basically shuffling by case from adjuster to adjuster. After securing the services of Mr. Lavis, I received my settlement within weeks. I was/am very pleased with his efficiency of service and professionalism. I have already recommended him to family members who are going through the same ordeal. I am reassured knowing that there is an attorney that I can turn to in times of need.
Nia Vaughn

Homeowner, New Orleans

Mr. Lavis worked diligently on our case. He came out to our home, took pictures, and made contact with the insurance company that had subsequently become so elusive to us. He stayed in contact with us during our ordeal, giving us a series of phone numbers to contact him. Copies of all information that pertained to our particular case, along with a sufficient explanation, were always ready-made. But most importantly, the results were exceptional. Because of Mr. Lavis’ representation, as well as his personal involvement, my husband and I received a substantial amount for home repairs, a figure that was neither offered nor considered by our insurance company.

Speaking from a positive personal experience, Mr. Charles Lavis should be highly considered – as he is recommended – if legal matters persist. I thank you kindly for giving me the opportunity to express my complete satisfaction with Mr. Lavis.

In closing, choosing Mr. Charles Lavis as your legal counsel will be both a rewarding and sound decision.
