Residential Property Hail Loss Claims
Hail can cause extensive damage to a range of residential structures, including single-family homes, townhouses, and condominiums. Insurance companies can delay the resolution of legitimate hail damage claims, leading to further damage to your home and financial stress. Timely resolution of your claim is critical for the preservation of your property.
Recovering After Hail Damaged Your Residential Property
Homeowners can experience a number of challenges after submitting a hail damage claim, including:
Excessive Depreciation: The application of excessive depreciation, where the insurance company claims your damaged roof was in disrepair.
Denied Claims: Denials based on policy exclusions such as wear and tear, poor maintenance, faulty construction, and manufacturing defects.
Delayed Response from Insurance Company: The insurance company may take an extended period of time to respond to your claim, leading to additional damage to your property and financial losses.
Disputed Claims: The insurance company may dispute or deny your claim, alleging that the damage is not covered under the policy or that the damage is not as severe as claimed.
Lowball Settlement Offer: The insurance company may offer a settlement amount that is lower than what is needed to repair the damage, putting additional financial strain on the homeowner.
Unfair Claim Handling: The insurance company may use unfair or unethical tactics, such as shifting blame for the damage or pressuring the homeowner into accepting a low settlement. Misapplication of co-insurance penalties, accusations that your building did not meet specified code requirements, and other unfounded excuses.
Unfamiliarity with Insurance Policies: Homeowners may not fully understand the terms and conditions of their insurance policy, leading to misunderstandings and disputes with the insurance company.
Difficulty Navigating the Claims Process: The claims process can be complex and time-consuming, causing additional stress and frustration for the homeowner.
Mistakes, Omissions, or Errors: Inexperienced, incompetent, overworked, or dishonest adjusters who fail to fully evaluate the damage. Dishonest, biased, or incorrect engineering reports and opinions from the insurance company’s hand-selected consultants, roofers, contractors, and other experts.
The insurance sector is tightly controlled by regulations and the law is straightforward.
