As a Florida-based law firm focused on Florida families and businesses, we know what it’s like to suffer from a storm. Hurricanes have repeatedly devastated many areas in our State and left properties vulnerable and destroyed. Be sure to take these steps immediately after Hurricane Irma to preserve your claim recovery:
1. DOCUMENT YOUR DAMAGE: Take photographs of all damaged items and materials. Even the things throw out! You may be entitled to coverage for items that you have overlooked. Your Hurricane Irma claim coverage will require proof, so it is essential that you document the full scope of your damage.
2. BE PROACTIVE: Hurricane Irma claims and hurricane claims in general are subject to the typical policy conditions that create duties for you as a policyholder after a loss. One common trap for many insureds is failing to adequately protect property from further damage. If you can take reasonable steps to preserve further damage, do so! This will improve your chance of a successful claim.
3. KEEP INVENTORY: Keep receipts of everything you must purchase in relation to Hurricane Irma, and keep a full inventory of your damaged items. It’s all in the details!
