Legal issues are extremely common following a natural disaster. Sometimes, you may not even recognize an issue as being a legal one.
There may be many challenges when trying to recover after a natural disaster. There are laws that can help - and there is assistance available on these issues. If you need help with a legal issue after a disaster, then check with a legal aid office to apply for free assistance if you are low-income and qualify. You can also look for an attorney to help you if you need assistance with any of these legal issues.
Some of these issues arise in the first few days, weeks, or months after a disaster. Some issues may come up later, even years later after the natural disaster occurred.
