 HURRICANE CLAIMS

WHAT DO I DO IF I HAVE
HURRICANE DAMAGE? 
 

1. You should photograph and video tape the damage before touching ANYTHING.  

 

2. You should report your insurance claim as soon as possible and document the date of your reporting. Insurance claims are handled first come, first serve. Make sure you report your insurance claims in writing directly to your insurance company, not just your agent. If you must report the claim by phone, put the call center on speaker phone, let them know you are video recording the call, and ask them to acknowledge the date. Do not speculate on the scope and extent of wind or flood damages. You can describe the damage as a lay person, but in terms of pinpointing the cause, tell the insurer you are not an engineer or a contractor.

 

3. You should get the insurance company’s permission to discard any ruined contents or building materials.

 

4. You should protect your property from any further damage. Once you have photographed and videoed the condition of your roof, protect your property from further damage by putting a trap over any openings, board up windows and begin drying out the building as soon as possible. 

 

5. You should register with FEMA early. If you need temporary housing assistance, contact FEMA at 1-800-621-3362. Again, it is first come, first serve, so do so immediately after reporting your insurance claims.


WHAT DO I DO IF MY INSURANCE COMPANY WON'T PAY MY ENTIRE CLAIM?

1. Document all of your conversations with your insurance company.

2. keep copies of all correspondence between you and the insurance company.

3. Locate a copy of your insurance policy and/or declarations page.
