Looking For Help with Hurricane Ida Claims?
Business owners and homeowners throughout Louisiana continue to struggle with the aftermath of Hurricane Ida, an intense storm that caused extensive damage throughout the state in 2021. Many policyholders are still waiting for the insurance proceeds they’re owed, with a property that needs to be repaired or replaced but no money to do so. When it comes to a business, even a minor interruption in service can have disastrous effects on its prosperity, something too many owners experienced after Hurricane Ida.

Our Hurricane Ida attorneys are on standby to help with any questions you may have. Whether you need help negotiating with the insurance company, filing a lawsuit, or finding the evidence you need to strengthen your claim, we’re here to help.
About Hurricane Ida
Hurricane Ida was a deadly and destructive Category 4 hurricane. It made landfall near Port Fourchon on the 16th anniversary of Hurricane Katrina and delivered its wrath to Louisiana and beyond over several days in late August and early September of 2021. With sustained winds of 150mph, just shy of the wind speed that would make it a Category 5 hurricane, the damage it caused across the U.S. amounted to $75 billion.
One of the worst areas Hurricane Ida caused extensive damage was in Louisiana, with a massive storm surge and heavy rain that led to flooding and winds that destroyed properties and infrastructure. More than one million people lost power during the storm, and it took weeks to restore electricity to everyone affected.
Hurricane Ida Damage
Ida was the most damaging hurricane in recent years. In fact, it became the second-most destructive and intense hurricane in Louisiana on record, behind only Hurricane Katrina. Its extraordinarily dangerous wind and flooding caused massive property destruction; it decimated homes and businesses, flooded buildings, tore off roofs, downed power lines, toppled trees, and closed businesses for months or more.
In the end, the damage varied from home to home and business to business. Hurricane Ida ultimately left few without some harm to contend with. If you’re still struggling with your hurricane damage claim, our attorneys can help you get what you’re owed.
Denied and Delayed Hurricane Ida Claims
Hurricane Ida continues to drive many insurance claims. These claims do not start automatically. Well before now, you should have contacted your insurance agency and filed a Hurricane Ida claim, providing photo evidence of damage and a list of losses. All Louisiana home or business owners should also have provided photos showing the condition of their home or business prior to the storm to help support their claim.
If you’ve done your part, the ball is in the insurance company’s court, and it’s past time they fulfilled their obligations to policyholders. Unfortunately, insurance companies have unfairly delayed and outright denied many Hurricane Ida claims, but our attorneys can help you get the payout you’re entitled to.

Our Louisiana hurricane damage attorneys can step in and handle your claim successfully.
