Why is it taking forever for my insurance claim to be processed when the insurance company knows we need to rebuild after the recent Marysville tornado?
This means that insurance companies are swamped with property claims related to the recent tornado, high winds and hail that damaged or destroyed homes. No matter how busy they are, you should have been contacted by an insurance adjuster already or have had a home inspection by this point.
Remember, insurance companies often use the tactic of stalling to help them get away with paying you less for your tornado and wind claim. When insurance companies stretch this process out, they know that homeowners who are struggling to get by and return to life as they knew it will accept almost any dollar amount the insurance company offers.
If the insurance company is dragging their feet on your tornado insurance claim, make sure you understand that they will probably make you a low-ball offer. You do not have to accept the offer they present to you. In fact, you can reject it and negotiate to get a higher offer. However, you need to get a skilled tornado insurance litigation lawyer on your side to help you get what you rightfully deserve.
