Hurricane Irma made landfall over southern Florida on September 11, 2017 as a category 3 storm packing winds of more than 110 miles per hour. It overwhelmed the entire state with heavy rain and fierce winds causing extensive damage to a luxury home in Highland Beach, Florida.
The insurance company’s initial offer was below the deductible of $90,000.00 resulting in no payment being made to the insured as they felt the damages did not warrant a settlement. The insureds hired Tutwiler and Associates adjusters, Rick Tutwiler and Kevin Leisure, to represent them. Mr. Tutwiler and Mr. Leisure were able to negotiate a settlement of $1 million dollars.
