Understand your insurance policy
There are insurance policies for homes, cars, businesses, and rentals. Policies that cover floods and policies that don’t. It is important to understand your insurance policies and the protections they provide. Equally as important is to file the appropriate claim or multiple claims. For example, if you experienced hurricane property damage to both your home and your car, you must file a claim with your homeowners insurance company as well as your car insurance company.
Hurricanes can cause damage in several ways
Hurricanes bring winds of 74 miles per hour or more, accompanied by heavy rain, thunder, and lightning. These destructive winds and heavy rains can cause storm surge flooding as well as inland flooding. Sometimes, determining the cause of the damage gets in the way of filing the appropriate property damage claim with your insurance company. Is the damage to your property from flooding and thereby covered by your flood insurance? Or is the damage the result of high winds and storm surge, which would be protected under your standard homeowners insurance?
Deadline for filing a hurricane property damage claim
Every state has a statute of limitations ‘ the legal timeframe for filing a claim in the court system. In Florida, the statute of limitations for property damage claims is two years from the time the damaged occurred. If you fail to file your property damage lawsuit after this two year deadline, your case will be dismissed and you forgo your right to recover any compensation for the property damage.
