"Hurricane Ian damage may exceed $50 billion dollars, it might be one of the costliest storms in US history and insurance companies may be tempted to shortchange their policy holders in Florida."
TAMPA, FL, October 11, 2022 /24-7PressRelease/ -- The Insurance Bad Faith Complaint Center will in the next two or three weeks start endorsing Florida based private insurance adjusters to ensure business owners and or homeowners impacted by Hurricane Ian in the Sunshine State do not get fleeced by an insurance company.
Private insurance adjusters typically get better insurance claims results for their clients. The Center is not only talking about damage done to a residential building, condominium or townhouse-they are also talking about businesses that cannot reopen because their business suffered significant damage-or the building they were in suffered significant damage and the business cannot yet reopen.
The first questions for a business owner or homeowner in Florida who had proper insurance coverage when Hurricane Ian made landfall-who cannot move back into their home or reopen their business is:
* "Does your homeowner's policy have loss of use or business interruption insurance coverage in the instance of an impacted business?"
* "Has your insurance company agreed to pay you for your loss of use-or business interruption?" https://InsuranceBadFaithComplaintCenter.Com
For homeowners in Florida who had substantial roof damage because of Hurricane Ian-the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is offering free blue tarp installations for qualifying homeowners in Lee, Charlotte, Sarasota, Collier and DeSoto counties. https://www.usace.army.mil/Missions/Emergency-Operations/Blue-Roof-Information/
The group says, "We want business owners and homeowners who have proper insurance coverage in Florida and who had significant damage to their business or to their home because of Hurricane Ian to get the best possible compensation results-based on their insurance coverage. On Sunday October 12th, we saw a person on CBS's 60 Minutes suggesting Hurricane Ian insurance coverage may 'depend ' on what happened first-'wind-or water' and we decided to immediately to get involved. In most instances with respect to Hurricane Ian we are pretty sure the wind came before the storm surge." https://InsuranceBadFaithComplaintCenter.Com
The Insurance Bad Faith Complaint Center is offering tips for business owners or homeowners who suffered significant damage in Hurricane Ian, and why a person-persons in this situation might consider talking to a private insurance adjuster:
The business owner-homeowner does not understand their insurance policy-especially the parts about loss of use-and or business interruption.
* The business owner-homeowner suffered significant damage to their business-home because of Hurricane Ian and their insurance company is offering a quick settlement-that might not be enough to make the repairs.
* The insurance company of the business owner-homeowner appears to be denying their Hurricane Ian claim.
* The business owner's-homeowner's insurance company has warned them about hiring a private insurance adjuster.
The Center says, "Hurricane Ian damage may exceed $50 billion dollars, and as such it might be one of the costliest storms in US history. The reason we will be endorsing and hopefully collaborating with three or four high end Florida based private insurance adjuster firms is because with so much money involved some insurance carriers may want to shortchange their policy holders. In this instance we think that sticking up for the little guy is the right thing to do." https://InsuranceBadFaithComplaintCenter.Com
