Windstorms can remove roofing, destroy units and structures, and leave a wake of damage that is complicated to sort through. Condominium insurance claims are already complex to begin with, and the type and severity of losses caused by high winds and blowing debris can be very different from case to case. Ultimately, insurance claims for wind-related damage to a condo can vary quite a bit depending on the highly specific details. So when policyholders run into delays, denials, and other problems along the way, it makes sense to seek out highly personalized solutions from an experienced policyholder attorney.
Wind Damage Claims for Condominiums Are Different for Every Policyholder
Windstorm damage claims are often complex for condominium owners because:
- They usually involve many parties who may be responsible for some portion of the damage caused by a windstorm, including unit owners, condominium associations, and insurance companies.
- It may not be clear which of the many potential responsible parties should actually be responsible for the damage from the windstorm.
- Windstorm damage can go deeper than obvious losses, so thorough assessments and estimates are needed to secure a fair recovery under the coverage that is carried.
- After severe windstorms, insurance companies may delay, underpay, or deny claims for condominium damage, and there can be a number of reasons why—including “just because.”
This means that there is a lot of variance, even between similar claims, and a lot of opportunities for mistakes and setbacks. However, if you are struggling to make repairs and move on after a windstorm, it is possible to get help that will help you take control of your claim.
