Getting Water Damage Fixed Quickly
The realities of living in Florida include the fact that hurricanes and serious weather conditions are a part of life. Every year, homeowners experience water damage caused by these storms, and while we would like to believe that insurance companies always give homeowners what they are entitled to, we can't say that is always true.
Ensure Your Homeowner's Insurance Covers Water Damage
When it comes to getting water damage fixed quickly, it helps to know what your homeowner's insurance policy covers. You can figure this out by reviewing documentation or by contacting your insurance company.
Hopefully, they will get you the information you need in a timely manner. If they don't, we can communicate with them on your behalf to help speed up the process.
Document the Type and Extent of the Water Damage
The sooner you take care of documenting water damage after the weather conditions have returned to normal, the better.
This can help prevent possible insurance roadblocks later on in the process since there will be less room for anyone to argue that the water damage was caused by something other than the weather conditions.
Report the Property Damage to Your Insurance Company
If you've lived in Florida or another hurricane-affected area for a long time, then you know you should report property damage to your insurance company as soon as possible. The insurance company may not always work with you in the way you desire. Hiring a lawyer can help.
This can allow you to focus on other important matters in your life that will no doubt need your attention at this time.
