Claims Adjusting for Storm & Hurricane Damage
Florida residents are no strangers to tropical storms and hurricanes that can devastate your property. However, insurance carriers have modified their policies without a full explanation of what changes have taken place and how it affects your coverage.
Our adjusters understand your policy and can translate whether it only provides coverage for damage due to wind or also damage from torrential rain, flooding or storm surge.
The People's Choice is one of your best resources for quickly handling storm and hurricane damage. Call us immediately after the storm has passed. Our inspectors and engineers will provide a detailed assessment of the damage and handle all the paperwork to get your claim processed quickly to maximize your eventual settlement. Otherwise your claim may be denied, delayed, or minimized by the carrier.
In fact, an audit of Citizens Insurance storm claims shows that property owners using public adjusters received settlements up to seven times greater than property owners who handled the claim themselves.
What You Can Do
Determine exactly what your insurance policy covers. Some policies only provide coverage for damage due to wind and don’t cover damage from torrential rain, flooding or storm surge. Update your policy to make sure your home or business is adequately covered.
If your home or commercial building has suffered storm damage, take immediate steps to secure the property to prevent injuries.
Mitigate the damage, such as putting a tarp on a leaking roof or plywood over a broken window.
Document the damage. Take photographs and videos and prepare a written list of all items damaged by the storm.
Call The People’s Choice Public Adjuster to ensure you get the settlement you deserve, not what the insurance company thinks you need!
