Hurricane Matthew Insurance Claims
Hurricane Matthew struck the southern tip of Florida on October 6, 2016, before moving slowly up the coast of Florida over the next few days. The hurricane continued northward, causing substantial rainfall, high winds, and surge flooding, all of which caused substantial damage to homes and businesses in Florida, Georgia, South Carolina and North Carolina.
Homeowner policies generally cover damage or destruction of a home from fire, wind, hail, and lightning. Most homeowner policies exclude flood damage. The interpretation of insurance policies in the aftermath of Hurricane Matthew is likely to be the subject of dispute and litigation. Recently, coverage disputes arising out of damage caused by Hurricane Katrina and Hurricane Rita led to lawsuits.
