Is Your Insurance Company Asking You to Sign Flood Damage Paperwork After Hurricane Irene?

Although Hurricane Irene was reduced from a hurricane to a tropical storm as it moved up the East Coast, the storm still created a ton of damage. Many homeowners sustained flooding, siding damage, and roof damage due to this storm.

As homeowners are starting to report their property damages to their insurance companies, policyholders need to be careful what paperwork they sign about their Hurricane Irene claim.

Beware of Flood Damage Paperwork

Most insurance policies do not cover flood damage that was caused by groundwater from a river or creek that overflowed and entered the home. Although you may understand that the storm brought the flood waters, some insurance companies will argue with you about the water damage your home sustained and if it was caused by a rising river or by the storm.

Insurance companies are difficult to deal with regarding water damage, as they may have many tactics and tricks for getting out of paying your property damage claim. Insurance adjusters may attempt to get you to sign paperwork indicating that all the damage your home sustained was flood-related. Do NOT sign any papers that point to this information.

If you are having a problem with your insurance company covering your residential insurance claim, denying your claim or offering you too low of an amount, ask them to put their reason in writing. Then, call an experienced hurricane insurance claim attorney at the Voss Law Firm at 888-614-7730 for a free legal consultation today.
