WHAT DOES YOUR HURRICANE DAMAGE INSURANCE COVER?
In Florida, a hurricane damage claim is typically covered under windstorm insurance; this leaves room for questions on the part of the homeowner.
What is and isn’t included? Will all my damages fall under a windstorm category? How can I prevent some damages?
Most homeowners’ insurance policies have an anti-concurrent causation clause in them. An anti-concurrent causation clause usually reads similar to this: “We do not insure for such loss regardless of a) the cause of the excluded event; or b) other causes of the loss; or c) whether other causes acted concurrently or in any sequence with the excluded event to produce the loss.”
This means that your home could be destroyed by a hurricane, but only some of it may be covered. Worst-case scenario, you could be left with no coverage for the damages. Sentry can work with you and your insurance company to ensure that you get fair and full payment on your claim.
CRUCIAL THINGS TO KNOW ABOUT HURRICANE DAMAGE CLAIMS
Call Sentry Public Adjusting before contacting your insurance company. The initial contact with your insurance company is critical. This contact can be the difference between your hurricane damage claim being paid or denied. Properly documenting and differentiating between belongings and property that can be repaired versus replaced can be overwhelming.
Sentry Public Adjusting can take on these complex and time-consuming for you. It’s hard to properly calculate what amount will adequately cover all the damages to your home. Let us help you navigate your hurricane damage claim from the beginning.
