With COVID-19, Resolving Property Damage Claims Is More Important Than Ever

With COVID-19, Resolving Property Damage Claims Is More Important Than Ever

Published March 16th, 2020 by Claim Help Lawyers

At The Knoerr Law Group, we want to explain how the coronavirus (COVID-19) has affected and can affect property owners with active insurance claims, or those who need to file one. Delays in fair claim evaluation and a lack of timely repairs are more unacceptable than ever before. Here’s why:

Insured property owners who have incurred a sudden and accidental water loss, especially in a pressurized hot water pipe in their home, will not have access to the hot water they need to properly wash their hands. This will interfere with efforts to prevent the spread of coronavirus. Without hot water, businesses could lose the use of their properties entirely.

As the COVID-19 virus continues to spread in Broward county, property owners without hot water are unable to conduct their business according to the simple but imperative protocol to stay clean and safe under this state of emergency. At this time, the consequences of a delayed insurance claim are irreversible and can lead to health issues and, potentially, death.

Generally, carriers have 90 days to inspect property damages and fairly and properly adjust and pay claims. In numerous instances, this doesn’t happen. Claims are undervalued, denied, and delayed.

Insurance companies have a duty to act quickly and to resolve claims for the benefit of the insureds/policyholders and, in this pandemic, for the public.

If you have an outstanding claim or your insurance company has failed to adjust and pay your claim, contact our attorneys to enforce your rights. Receiving the correct compensation at the right time has never been more important.
