Windstorm & Hurricane Damage
Steps to Take Immediately After Hurricane Property Damage
When it is possible and safe to do so following a storm, you should report property damage to your homeowners insurance company. Be sure to collect evidence of the damage by taking photos of areas of your home that sustained damage and any items that were ruined or lost due to the severe conditions. The moment the insurance company receives notification of your claim, it will assign your case an insurance adjuster. He or she will be responsible for assessing the damage, estimating the value of your claim, and arranging any payment on it.
It is not uncommon for insurance adjusters to issue less than your claim is worth based on your policy or to deny your claim for frivolous reasons. Unfortunately, insurers are loyal to their shareholders and not the responsible property owners who regularly pay their dues. Insurers lose money when they pay the full value of claims, and chances are, you are one of the dozens if not hundreds of homeowners filing similar claims with the same company following that same storm. Insurers have teams of strong-willed attorneys taking advantage of every loophole in your policy; shouldn’t you also have legal representation?
