Types of Hurricane Damage
Hurricanes are powerful storms that can cause many types of damage, including the following:
- Roof damage from wind or falling debris
- Flooding and water damage
- Broken doors and windows
- Structural damage
- Electrical system and fire damage
- Damage to personal property such as appliances and electronics
How to Protect Your Insurance Claim
By taking these actions, you can increase the chance of successfully recovering compensation after a storm:
- Document and catalog damage. Assess your property and document all damage with photos and videos. Try to take photos of all four sides of your home; start with wide shots before taking photos of individual items. If possible, also take photos and videos before the storm hits. Make a list of everything that was damaged, no matter how small.
- Prevent further damage. Your insurance policy likely has a clause in it that requires you to take necessary steps to protect your property after the storm. For example, if you experience roof damage, as soon as it’s safe, cover the damaged areas with a tarp to prevent further water damage.
- File your claim promptly. Insurance policies typically require you to file your insurance claim within a specified period of time after damage occurs. Your insurance company will look for any reason not to honor your claim, so don’t wait until it’s too late. File the claim as soon as possible.
