Storm Damage to your Home

12/28/2023 (Permalink)

During and after a storm your first priority needs to be the safety of your family.  Once your family is safe, you need to thoroughly document the damage to your property.  With the convenience of of cell phone cameras and other video devices, it is easier than ever to memorialize the damage caused by the storm and to easily provide the same to your insurance carrier. ALWAYS TAKE NOTE OF THE DAMAGES FOR PROOF!!

 Please insure you have pictures and other documentation from before the storm so that you can demonstrate to the insurance company the nature of your property and the condition of the same prior to the damage. Before and After pictures are very important. 

Once you are able to communicate, you should also immediately place your insurance company on notice of your loss.  Many insurance policies are now written to specifically mandate “immediate” notice of a loss, and insurance companies will often spend lots of money defending against the payment of your claim based upon an alleged “late notice” defense.

After notification of your claim, an adjuster from the insurance company will come to your property to inspect the damage.  It is crucially important that you point out any and all damage to your property so that the damage can be documented.
