Tornado claims are driving insurance costs

Homeowners and commercial property owners throughout the tornado states are still dealing with the devastating effects of more recent tornado and hail damage. They will soon learn that that the dollar amount(s) offered and paid by their insurance companies are not sufficient to pay for their complete loss and damage repairs. Not uncommon to bad faith claim attorneys.

As the demand for qualified construction workers, roofers, and building materials increase so do the associated costs.  This -supply and demand effect- will undoubtedly continue to impact those who sustained tornado/hail damage in a negative way for some time.

To get the best results from your insurance claim, make sure that your contractor and the insurance adjuster working for the insurance company are in agreement with all the reconstruction plans and get those agreements and costs in writing.  By now, you should have a “claim file” set up with all relevant correspondence letters, e-mails, building damage estimates, personal property losses, and business property damage fully documented. This helps to ensure that your insurance claim is managed efficiently and will be especially helpful if the catastrophe adjuster leaves to return back home and you are assigned a new adjuster, which happens more than you might imagine.

Or, just hire a public adjuster to facilitate the burden.

Many property owners have no idea that a severe storm impacted their property.

You may be entitled to a claim payout.
