Living in South Florida has many perks, from the beaches to the beautiful weather. It is true when people say living in Florida is like constantly being on vacation. However, nothing in life is perfect and that’s included when we talk about living in Florida. Something we have here that the majority of the other states do not have to deal with are hurricanes. Hurricanes can form at any time for 5 months out of the year with early fall being the peak season. These storms are quite the gamble too. One year we may not have any but the next we can get slammed with two category 5 hurricanes back to back. It’s a toss-up. And while this may make life in Florida less than perfect, it’s not a reason to choose not to live here. The best thing you can do is to make sure you have a post-storm game plan. This game plan should consider your insurance situation and how you plan to file a claim once the storm is gone and the damage has settled in.
Take Account of the Damage
First things first, after a storm you should take a minute to do a walk around of your property. This walk-around should be one where you are highly observative because sometimes hurricane damage cannot be seen in plain sight. Make sure when you see something damaged or out of place that you take note of it. This way you can refer to the damage when you move on to the actual step of filing your claim. No matter how small the damage is it’s important you note it down. We say this because sometimes the smallest damage can result in some pretty serious damage further down the line. A perfect example of this is water leaking that damages your home and thus causes mold to grow. This is a double whammy situation that no one wants to be unaccounted for. Worst case scenario you write something minuscule down and it doesn’t end up being anything serious. This worst-case scenario is still a good news situation.
Call Your Claims Adjuster
Now that you have taken down all of the damage done to your home you can call your claims adjuster. Your All Claims Solutions claims adjuster will work with you on determining what damage should and should not go on the claim and how to properly report it on the claim. This may sound technical because it is. The nitty-gritty details of a claim can make all the difference when it comes to the insurance company helping you out. This is why having a claims adjuster can truly make all the difference. Without one, you may have reported the damages in a way that does not result in any assistance. Your claims adjuster will also take the case moving forward so you do not have to worry about anything. All of the stress of the hurricane can be passed along to us. We will talk to the insurance company and work out your claim with them so you don’t have to.
When you go with us for your post-hurricane damage needs, we make sure you feel like your claim is in good hands. We want nothing more than to see you properly compensated for the damages done by the hurricane. After all, the damages done were something you could not have prevented. We know how stressful it can be to go through something as scary as a hurricane then wake up the next morning and see that the hurricane is gone but left quite a disaster behind. This is a situation Floridians everywhere know all too well. And while it’s just a part of living here, it doesn’t need to put a damper on anything. At least not when you have your claims adjuster take over your claim for you. For an easier time this hurricane season, don’t settle for less than you deserve.
