If you have recently suffered damages in a Florida hurricane, you should report your damages and file your insurance claim as quickly as you can. You will also want to document the damages that you’ve suffered from the hurricane. You can do this by taking photographs of your home and the damage done to any personal items.
Most insurers will require you to take steps to mitigate any further damages. This means preventing any damages from becoming significantly worse. For instance, if you have a leak from a damaged pipe, you should call a plumber to stop the leak before it makes the situation worse. If you do hire a repairman, try not to pay them in cash, because you can submit the repairs for compensation in your Florida hurricane damage claim.
You should also collect any documents that can prove the value of your property. Receipts and credit card statements can be helpful to your claim. Have all of this available when you call your insurance company. If you need help submitting your claim, or if you are denied compensation, you can get the professional help of a Florida hurricane attorney. An attorney can investigate your case, and help you get the money you deserve.
