Hurricane Owen Claims

Each year, NOAA (the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration) publishes a list of names that will be applied to each tropical storm that arises in the Atlantic. According to NOAA: “For the 2022 hurricane season, NOAA is forecasting a likely range of 14 to 21 named storms (winds of 39 mph or higher), of which 6 to 10 could become hurricanes (winds of 74 mph or higher), including 3 to 6 major hurricanes (category 3, 4 or 5; with winds of 111 mph or higher).”

One of the names in this list of potential storms is Owen. As Floridians make their way through another hurricane season, the team at 1-800-Injured wanted to share some helpful information in case Owen (or any other storms on the list) ends up affecting the state.

Filing a Hurricane Claim in Florida

As we all know, hurricanes can cause a lot of damage. If your property is damaged by a hurricane, you may be able to file an insurance claim to help cover the cost of repairs. But before you do so, it’s important to understand the process and what documentation you’ll need.

The first step is to contact your insurance company as soon as possible after the hurricane passes. You will need to provide them with a detailed account of the damage, as well as any supporting documentation (photos, receipts, etc.). Once your claim is filed, an adjuster will be assigned to your case and will contact you to schedule a time to come and inspect the damage.

Once the adjuster has inspected the damage, they will determine if your claim is covered by your policy. If it is, they will provide you with an estimate of the cost of repairs. If you agree with the estimate, the repairs will be scheduled and paid for by your insurance company. If you do not agree with the estimate, you can negotiate with the adjuster or hire a public adjuster to help you.

If your property is not covered by insurance or if your deductible is higher than the cost of repairs, you may still be able to get financial assistance from the government. FEMA (the Federal Emergency Management Agency) provides grants and low-interest loans to homeowners and renters who have been affected by a disaster.
