Storm Damage Insurance Claims
Has Your Insurance Company
Denied or Underpaid Your Claim?
Unfortunately, we have no control over the weather. By its very nature, severe weather is unpredictable and the damage it can cause to personal property can often be catastrophic. It can be extremely frustrating to deal with the aftermath of a particularly bad storm, but dealing with your insurance company can easily take your stress level to new heights.
Even the best of insurance companies can be difficult to deal with in regard to a property damage claim, and they will often look to take advantage of legal loopholes within your policy to not pay you for all your damages.
Most homeowners are unaware of exactly what their property insurance policy covers until the time comes to file a weather-related damage claim. These policies with the insurance company are often complicated, difficult to understand, and leave homeowners unsure what they can recover after a hurricane or other storm caused significant property damage.

Even if your home or business has been damaged by a storm, and even if you’ve done everything required of you to file your claim, you may still run into hassles getting your insurance company to play fair.
It’s extremely important to understand everything there is to know about your particular insurance policy, including how your insurance company will pay out. The following is a list of common problems experienced by insurance policy holders when filing a claim:
- Insurance companies look for excuses to justify denying your claim, such as subtle loopholes and vague wording within your policy. Be aware!
- The evaluation of damage to your home or property might be much lower than what you expected and need to repair your property—and truth be told, much lower than what is fair. The insurance company may also try to minimalize your incurred expenses, such as overnight hotel stays, rental vehicles, and more.
- Insurance companies will sometimes refute their obligation to provide you with defense to claims made under liability insurance.
In order to avoid being taken advantage of, you must learn all the ins and outs of your policy. Additionally, should a damaging storm occur, be sure to do whatever you think is necessary to prevent or reduce any further damage. With all this being said, should you find yourself involved in a policy dispute with your insurance company, Zar Law Firm is here to help.
