The two main types of loss claims are for Hail and Flood:
Hail Damage Claims in Colorado
In Colorado the weather can change in an instant, and with those changes comes substantial storms. When a hail storm hits many of us are unprepared for the damage that the storms bring. If your property has been damaged by a hail storm, you are entitled to recovery. When a hail storm hits, it is important to take in the breadth of damage sustained prior to filing your insurance claim and upon filing of your claim to ensure the insurance adjuster properly accounts for all of the damage you have sustained. When a catastrophic storm hits, this is even more important.
Often insurance companies dispatch Catastrophic Event Teams to areas hit hard by storms. These teams make it their mission to resolve the insurance claims as quickly as possible and for as little as possible; however, doing so does not afford you the fair, honest, and thorough damage assessment that you are entitled to. Additionally, many homeowners are not aware of the fact that their policies cover more than just their roofs and siding, but rather that you may be entitled to recover for damages to your windows, decking, fencing, landscaping, roofs, siding and outdoor property caused by the storm.
The attorneys at the Sanders Law Firm office in Colorado Springs are intimately familiar with the games insurance companies play when it comes to compensating you for your losses. We have substantial experience fighting for individuals in your situation. Our team has worked numerous wind loss claims, water damage claims, and hail damage claims in the state of Colorado on properties both big and small. We would like to welcome you into the Sanders Law Firm family and would be honored to have the opportunity to evaluate any potential claim you may have.
Under Colorado law there are time limitations on bringing a claim. Therefore, if you believe you have a claim against your insurance company, please do not delay seeking legal advice.

Flood Claims & Damage in Colorado
Storm damage can be far more severe and extensive than it first appears to the untrained eye. In Colorado we experience heavy rainfall at times that results in your home and property flooding. Floods can be dangerous as well as damaging to your property and can even result in your home becoming unlivable.
Our attorneys have a wealth of knowledge on how insurance companies handle claims. We understand how they might attempt to deny, delay or dispute a valid claim. Insurance companies may attempt to claim that the damages are non-existent, preexisting, caused by poor maintenance or construction, and/or less significant than they are.
Flooding due to heavy rain can do serious damage to your property and can cost thousands of dollars, or more, to repair. Do not wait to call an experienced attorney, Sanders Law Firm is here to help.
