Hurricane & Windstorm

Hurricane & Windstorm

Hurricanes continue damaging our homes and surrounding areas. Catastrophic winds can damage your roof and costs to repair your home would bankrupt you if you did not have successful claim.  



Fires are devastating and smoke can cause damage to electronics and interior ceilings and walls. An insurance carrier will often downplay the cost of repair and sometimes accuse homeowners of Arson. We have successfully litigated arson cases and fire damage cases.

Vandalism & Theft

Vandalism & Theft

A burglar or thief can financially destroy you. Often times your home or business gets damaged during a break in. The carrier will often put you through a lot of trouble with a contents inventory or request receipts that you do not have. It is important to take photos now of all personal property before the theft occurs and keep your receipts.

Pipe Bursts & Water Damage

Pipe Bursts & Water Damage

Toilets, sinks and appliances often times overflow and you will need to replace the underground rusted drain pipes. Trenching the floors is expensive and covered under most policies if water damage occurred.  Pipe bursts can flood the home and cause mold and severe water damage.

Insurance Claim Won Thanks To The Team At Ligman & Martin


After we were declined and our claim had no money that was going to be paid, Joe Ligman fought for us and got us all the money that we needed to make all the repairs at our home.  Thanks to Joe and the team for making this happen.  Highly recommended is all I have to say.
