What to Do If Your Home Is Damaged in a Storm?


Ensure Safety First

Before assessing the damage, prioritize your safety and that of your family. If there are immediate hazards, such as fallen power lines or structural instability, evacuate the premises and contact the relevant authorities.

 

Document the Damage

Once it is safe to do so, document the damage by taking photographs or videos. Capture both close-up shots and wide-angle views to provide a comprehensive visual record. Make sure to include any visible structural damage, water infiltration, broken windows, or other visible losses.

 

Contact Your Insurance Company

Promptly notify your insurance company about the damage and initiate the claims process. Follow their instructions and provide them with all necessary information, including the date and time of the storm, a description of the damage, and any supporting documentation you have.

 

Consult with an Attorney

Consider seeking legal representation from an experienced storm damage attorney, such as those at Horton Personal Injury Lawyers. A knowledgeable attorney can guide you through the complex claims process, ensure that you understand your rights, and advocate for your best interests.

 

What Will Help My Case?


Mitigate Further Damage

Take reasonable steps to mitigate further damage to your property. This could include covering broken windows, tarping damaged roofs, or removing debris to prevent additional losses. Document your efforts and keep any receipts or invoices for materials or services used.

 

Avoid Making Assumptions or Admitting Fault

During discussions with your insurance company or adjusters, avoid making assumptions about the cause or extent of the damage. Stick to the facts and provide accurate information. Additionally, refrain from admitting fault or accepting blame for the damage, as this may impact your claim.

 

Consult with an Attorney before Accepting Settlements

Before accepting any settlement offers from your insurance company, consult with a storm damage attorney. They can review the proposed settlement to ensure it adequately covers the cost of repairs, replacement, and any additional damages or losses suffered.

 

What To Do Before an Accident Happens?


Review Your Insurance Policy

Familiarize yourself with the terms and coverage of your insurance policy. Understanding the extent of your coverage will help you know what types of damage are eligible for compensation and the limits and deductibles that may apply.
