Taking the Stress Out of Making a Claim

/ 0 Comments /

As if it’s not stressful enough when a fire, flood, or storm damages your home, you then have to deal with insurance companies. Instead of sorting your claim, and letting you get on with things, dealing with the insurance company can sometimes be the most stressful part.

 

Picture the scene. Mother nature has come crashing through your neighborhood. You’ve done everything you can to prepare for hurricane season, fireproofed your home, maintained the property, and your insurance policy is up to date. But here’s the thing: you can’t prevent a storm from lifting the roof tiles, you can’t block water from destroying your floors, and you can’t stop a fire from raging through your kitchen. In between sweeping up the broken glass and checking on your neighbors, you’ve got to call the insurance company, so that you can make a claim. After all, that’s why you have insurance, right?

 

Delayed, denied, underpaid.

Sadly, things are usually not so straightforward. Often, people who make a claim with their insurance company report that they make several calls to report the damage to their home, and the days turn in to weeks without a word. Their claim is delayed, and homeowners make so many calls that they know the insurance number off by heart by the time they get an answer.

 

In other cases, time goes by and a measly check arrives in the mail. The homeowner thinks “this must be a mistake. This amount couldn’t possibly cover the extensive damage that my home has sustained.” They call and debate, but the insurance company undervalues their claim.

 

Finally, some homeowners got nowhere at all with their insurance company because their claim is denied completely. The insurance company is quoting a loophole that states that they refuse to pay a dime.

 

The homeowner’s stress goes through the roof, and they feel frustrated and powerless. They feel like they’re fighting a losing battle. Anxiety and distress mount every day. It’s like it’s just them and their battered home against the insurance giant.

 

So, if you find yourself in this difficult situation, what’s your next move?

Unfortunately, Florida insurance companies employ experienced adjusters and attorneys to work on their side to help them save as much as possible. This means that they will debate you claim every step of the way, no matter how many phone calls you to make or emails you write.
