Property Damage & Insurance Claim Issues
Although there are many benefits to living in the great state of Florida, there is one huge downside-storm & hurricane warnings, which lead to property damage. Property damage may come in many forms-Fire, Flood, Hurricane Damage, Storm Damage, Negligent Building Structure Practices etc. and as an insured policy holder, you are eligible for reimbursement based on your policy structure. Unfortunately, as we all know, this isn’t always the case and filing a claim while dealing with your insurance company can be a lengthy, drawn-out process. Many times, your claim may be denied and if it is accepted you may not receive the appropriate payout.
