A Hurricane Claim Public Adjuster Can Help with Irma Compensation
It’s been over six months since Irma, yet some homeowners and business owners are still waiting for approval on their insurance claims. Others are reeling from their lower-than-expected compensation. When disasters strike, it can be difficult for insurance companies to talk with all of their policyholders. As this year’s hurricane season begins, policyholders are reaching out to a hurricane claim public adjuster, desperate for answers.
Tens of Thousands Underpaid During Irma: Hurricane Claim Public Adjuster
According to a report in the Palm Beach Post, less than half of the more than 900,000 hurricane claims are open. Florida’s second-largest insurer, state-run Citizens Property Insurance Corp., said it has reopened more than 24,000 claims, to review them as more information becomes available.
Typically, most homeowner’s insurance claims are either underpaid or not paid at all. Another issue is that because negotiating with insurance companies is so time-consuming and stressful, property owners tend to give up and accept that their claim isn’t going to be handled. Filing these claims by yourself can feel like you’re fighting an uphill battle. So, if your insurance company is giving you the runaround with those or other property damage claims, it’s time to call Cohen & Associates Public Adjusters.
