Farming of any kind can be a risky business, but vineyard owners are often caring for delicate vines in less-than-perfect conditions. Although most vineyards have the foresight to secure comprehensive insurance coverage, businesses can’t always predict how the insurance company might respond when it’s time to pay out a claim. And, unfortunately, many claims are denied, delayed, or underpaid in an effort to save insurance companies’ bottom lines.
You May Have to Fight to Receive the Vineyard Insurance Benefits Your Business Pays For
The unfortunate truth of the agricultural insurance industry is that, although you pay for your agricultural insurance coverage every year, the process of recovering damages isn’t always smooth. Growers and producers may have to struggle to have their claims taken seriously, and they are often put in a position where they feel as though they have to fight their own insurance company every step of the way. And, unfortunately, that fight can be remarkably complicated, even in seemingly clear-cut claims.
When an agricultural insurance claim is denied, or when a business owner is unable to come to a resolution with the insurance company, the fight isn’t necessarily over, but it does mean that you may face a hard road to getting the help you need while your vineyard recovers from an unexpected blow.
