Hailstorms can be remarkably furious, and city leaders and government officials sometimes have to face surprisingly extensive damage to their communities in the aftermath. Hailstones have the potential to cause expensive damage to government and civic properties across a region or municipality, including damage to:
- Fire stations and emergency services
- City, state, and county government buildings
- Community centers
- Public utilities
- Other civic properties
Unfortunately, some governmental policyholders struggle to get the insurance payments and financial assistance they need to make needed repairs, prioritize resources, organize financial recovery, and get back to normal daily functions.
Insurance Issues That Plague Municipalities After Severe Hailstorms
It’s not only homeowners who struggle to get paid for roofing losses and property damage after a hailstorm. Government agencies and municipalities can also have trouble collecting maximum compensation for their hailstorm damages under the numerous policies they hold. For governmental policyholders, even simple hailstorm insurance claims can be complicated, and many policyholders end up running into additional issues with:
- Unfair assessments and estimates
- Coverage disputes
While many governmental policyholders feel that they have no choice but to accept the insurance company’s initial decision, the truth is that they can assert their rights and fight to get a fair resolution to their hail insurance claims.
