Most hurricane damage events happen after a hurricane has already passed by, though many injuries occur while preparing for a hurricane as well. Falls, lacerations, and puncture wounds are all known to occur while preparing a property for an incoming hurricane. These injuries can lead to debilitating disabilities that last a lifetime.

Sadly, there are victims of hurricane injuries that don’t receive adequate compensation from their insurance policies, or from government aid, to cover expenses from medical visits and lost wages. Additionally, property negligence from neighbors who fail to adequately prepare their homes before a hurricane (like putting out open fires or closing gas lines) or adequately clean up their properties after a hurricane (clearing damaging debris and patio furniture) can also threaten your safety. If you are injured due to a neighboring homeowner or business operator’s property negligence, call Wendy Doyle-Palumbo now, they may be liable for any damages to your person.

When it comes to hurricanes and mother nature, there’s a lot that we cannot control. However, there are times before, during, and after a hurricane when the negligence of others can lead to a personal injury lawsuit.
