When a natural disaster occurs in the United States, it can leave many people without homes and money to afford repairs. Earthquakes, fires, floods, winter storms, tornadoes, and hurricanes are all legitimate natural disasters that displace people from their homes or leave them without finances every single year. As natural disasters are unavoidable—and helping the victims of these disasters is necessary—there are times that the victims can obtain financial compensation from the government. This involves an application process.

One of the ways that the Law Office of Richard M. Kenny is able to help clients is by litigating in natural disaster cases. FEMA admits that there are more natural disasters in the U.S. now then there have been in the past, but only about 50 percent of these natural disasters allow for federal assistance. Last month, citizens of Long Beach Island, Freeport, Oceanside, the Rockaways, Breezy Point, and surrounding areas were left without power after Hurricane Sandy knocked out many of the power lines. As the east coast begins to go back to everyday life, men and women are also starting to look for ways to receive the help they deserve.

In the wake of a natural disaster, locating a party at fault can be difficult. That’s why the Law Office of Richard M. Kenny wants to help. Recently, Attorney Kenny was certified after attending a class given by FEMA administrators about Hurricane Sandy and legal action in cases regarding the hurricane. Mr. Kenny now has a better knowledge of the bureaucratic system and will be able to analyze hurricane hardship stories and determine whether or not victims have the ability to apply for compensation. As well, Mr. Kenny has learned about what paperwork is needed to accompany a claim form.

With this new knowledge, Mr. Kenny chose to set up a station in New York and assist those that needed information about filing personal injury claims after the storm. He provided this information pro bono because he believed that it was the least he could do for those that suffered deeply in Hurricane Sandy. During his time at the FEMA class, Mr. Kenny learned that the process to apply for compensation after a natural disaster is often complicated. Still, he wanted to help those that needed his aid to learn more about natural disaster litigation in the United States.
