Every motorist in Florida is supposed to have car insurance if they own a car. Unfortunately, too many people fail to do this and drive without insurance. In the event of an accident, the insured victims can be left to figure out who will be held responsible for the damages they have suffered.
If you have recently filed an insurance claim only to have it denied or delayed, you are likely feeling quite upset. People buy insurance policies to protect themselves and have some peace of mind in knowing that they are protected should something bad happen. But when your claim is not handled in the way you expected, you can be left feeling anything but protected.
In our last blog post, we discussed house fires and what homeowners can do to protect themselves and their homes in the event of a fire. This includes reviewing your homeowner's or renter's insurance policy.
Walking around your house after a severe storm can be enormously upsetting. Not only could you be looking at extensive damage but it can be very difficult to see your belongings and home in disarray. In this situation, you may find some peace of mind that you are well insured and have premium policies that you expect will help you rebuild your home and your life.
Property owners all across Florida are assessing the damage done to their homes and other buildings in the wake of Tropical Storm Erika. While the storm did not reach hurricane status as some had predicted, it did end up causing significant flood and wind damage.
Certain parts of Florida have been hit pretty hard with rain in recent weeks. In fact, some areas like Tampa have gotten up to 7 inches of rain with more expected in the near future. This is several inches higher than usual and the heavy rainfall is certainly taking its toll on residents.
Any time you have to deal with your insurance company can feel like a battle. You have to arm yourself with information, defend yourself against delays and be aggressive when it comes to making sure your claim is properly investigated. This can be quite infuriating, especially when you are already dealing with property damage and injuries.
In the aftermath of an accident, victims need help and they need answers. In most cases, this requires them to go through their insurance company and submit a claim for relief. For many people, this is a process that, while tedious and frustrating, is fairly uneventful.
People across Florida are likely well aware that June 1 marks the beginning of hurricane season, and that's just right around the corner. Property insurance -- including home, auto and other types -- should also be at the top of mind for residents.
