They even deny valid claims all the time to avoid paying the property owner. Triumph Consulting steps in and fights on your behalf to help you recover the payout you deserve for your property damage claim.

Hurricane Ian Property Damage Claims are expected to be reported in large numbers.

All of Florida’s 67 counties are under a state of emergency, and evacuations are expected to be announced. Florida is preparing for Hurricane Ian to make landfall as a category 3 or 4 somewhere between Thursday and Friday – potentially within Florida’s big bend. Storm surge as high as 8-10 feet is expected in parts of Florida, with as much as 10+ inches of rainfall in places.

Gather evidence to support your Hurricane Ian property damage claim now. Take pictures and videos of your property. 

Vital evidence helps create an undeniable claim. 

It’s a fact that hurricanes cause a massive amount of damage. When your property is damaged, and you have a homeowner’s insurance policy in good standing, and if the damage caused to your property is covered under your policy, then the insurance company is liable for the cost of repairing your home. The problem is insurance companies only have their well-being in mind, not yours. This means if the insurance company sees an opportunity to deny or underpay you for your claim, they will take advantage of the opening and deny you the compensation you are entitled to. By taking pictures and videos of your property now, you can easily show any damage your property sustains by comparing pictures of your home before and after the storm.

What else can you do?

You are expected to take measures to protect your home, like placing sandbags, boarding your windows, and securing your doors. Remember to check your insurance policy to ensure you have all the protection you need. Insurance companies set deadlines for when you can make adjustments to your policy before the arrival of a hurricane, so make sure to contact your insurance agent as soon as you can.
