Tornados threaten governmental organizations and municipalities across the United States, and most of these policyholders are aware of what will be needed to file their insurance claims and help their communities recover. However, most of these large governmental policyholders are also unprepared for a potential claim denial after a weather disaster has done extensive damage.
Unfortunately, claim denials are something that government entities experience—even though it seems unthinkable. It isn’t always easy to get the resolution you need after a city or county experienced extensive tornado losses or explain delays to the community that depends on you. However, it is possible for municipalities to fight back against unfair denials and get on with their tornado recovery.
Governmental Tornado Claim Denials Aren’t Like Other Denials
Unlike homeowner insurance claims, municipal or governmental claims can affect a large number of people and public services. While communities rely on swift recovery at the city, county, or state level to move on with their own lives, unfair delays and denials of municipal claims inhibit everyone’s recovery—whether they are homeowners, business owners, or governmental policyholders. Governmental or municipal tornado insurance claims can be much more complicated than other kinds of claims, and there is often much more at stake. Governmental and municipal policyholders can’t give up on a claim just because it becomes difficult or there is a disagreement with the insurance company.
