Do You Need Help with a Hurricane Claim?
Florida, Georgia and North Carolina are located in prime hurricane territory. High winds, torrential rains, and coastal surges accompany named and unnamed storms, causing widespread hurricane damage. Unfortunately, insurance companies typically impose high hurricane deductibles on policyholders located in hurricane-prone states. While your standard deductible may be $500 or $1,000, it’s not unusual for your hurricane deductible to be based on a percentage of the amount the building is insured for. Imagine insuring your home for $250,000 with a 10 percent hurricane deductible. Your share of the cost for repairs would be at least $25,000 before your insurance company kicks in.
Not only is a great deal of money at stake with hurricane damage, the claims process is complicated. Your policy is likely loaded with provisions, exclusions, limits, and legalese, making it unclear to the average policyholder as to what is and what is not covered. Until recently, most policies were uniform in nature and offered similar coverage’s. This is no longer the case, adding even more complexity to an already complex system.
To top it off, as the insured, you are responsible for proving your losses and fulfilling numerous obligations. If you don’t, you might not get paid! In addition, insurance companies are in business to make a profit, so it’s in their best interest to save money wherever they can.
