You’ve suffered damage to your farm in a windstorm. You believe you’ve taken all the right steps to assess the damage and submit your claim, but your claim has still been denied. What can you do?
Agricultural policyholders rely on their insurance policies to protect their livelihoods—and sometimes even their homes, too. Farm policies can be very complex, and how they cover wind damage can vary a lot depending on the type of farm or agricultural business you own. When you file a legitimate claim with your insurer, and that claim is denied, then you can take action to make sure you are being treated fairly. And you should know that is possible to fight unfair wind-claim denials if you get help.
If you are having any trouble with wind claims that have been denied, an attorney experienced with farm claims can help you determine why your claim has been denied and take steps to hold the insurance company responsible if the claim was unfairly denied under the terms of your policy. While policyholders may be able to take these steps alone, the complexity of the policies and the legal issues encountered can be prohibitively difficult. An experienced policyholder attorney will be familiar with the laws and regulations that matter, and he or she can help you protect your property, fight unfair denials, and maximize your claim for wind losses.
