Take a close look at your insurance policy and file the appropriate claim
Before filing an insurance claim for damage sustained from Hurricane Michael, read over your insurance policy carefully. Make sure you understand the protections provided under the policy, any deductibles that must be met, exceptions to the coverage, and any limits under the policy. Be sure to file the appropriate insurance claim – if, for example, Hurricane Michael caused damage to your home and car, you must file a claim under your homeowners policy and a claim under your automobile insurance policy.
Does homeowners insurance cover flood damage?
Homeowners insurance does not cover property damage from flooding. Protection is provided by purchasing a separate flood insurance policy that covers your home and the contents of the home.
My insurance claim for damage from Hurricane Michael was denied. What can I do?
It is not uncommon for an insurance company to deny or reject an insurance claim. The basis for a denial may be because the property damage that was reported is not covered under your insurance policy. Your insurance company may also deny a claim if your policy was not effective at the time the damage occurred. In some situations, the insurance company may state that you acted in some way that voided your insurance policy – by, for example, not repairing damage that was reported in a previous claim. If your insurance claim for damage from Hurricane Michael is denied from the insurance company, it is not the end to the claims process. It is important to remember that insurance policies are contractual agreements between two parties and are subject to interpretation by the courts. The court may reverse the denial of an insurance policy claim. If your claim has been denied or rejected, consult with a disaster recovery attorney with experience in handling hurricane damage insurance claim denials.
