American Public Radio reports that 65,000 Alabamans filed claims after the tornadoes. Risk Management Solutions says the Southeast storm damage insured loss could add up to six billion dollars. Nearly 70 percent going to the hardest hit state, Alabama. But for a small group of homeowners facing foreclosure during that time and received damage to their home they may be stuck in limbo. Can't get FEMA assistance and still fighting with their insurance company. And that is the moment when obtaining legal counsel should be considered. Attorney Monique Okoye says "We have written letters for clients who are in that limbo status. One homeowner affected by the storms expressed just trying to find her mortgage to pre register her kids for school was overwhelming at first. But after meeting with school officials everything worked out with the registration process. " If you are still struggling with debt, foreclosure and other economic hardships from the storm or even prior to the storm the worst thing you can do is nothing. Attorneys advise seek legal counsel. Many lawyers will waive your fees for your initial consult.
