Denied Property Damage Claim? Here’s What You Can Do:
When it comes to property damage claims, denials are not uncommon. Sometimes they are simply the result of missing information or miscommunication between a policyholder and insurance provider, and sometimes they are evidence of misconduct by an adjuster or insurance company as they try to protect their profits and avoid paying valid claims.
If your property damage claim was denied, there are several steps you can take to address this:
- Review your insurance policy to make sure you know what’s covered.
- Carefully look over the notice of denial that you received from your insurance provider. It should state the reason for the denial. Call if you have questions about why your claim was denied.
- Gather additional documentation and evidence of your losses. You can take pictures from multiple angles and describe the events leading to the loss to further support your claim.
- If you disagree with your insurance company’s assessment of your claim, you can request an independent appraisal. Many policies have provisions that allow for a second opinion.
- Gather proof that you were properly maintaining your property, to show that the damages were not caused or worsened by homeowner negligence.
- File an appeal directly with your insurance company, including all additional information and documentation, and request them to review the claim.
- If your appeal isn’t successful, consider filing a complaint with the Florida Office of Insurance Regulation.
- Contact an attorney. Trying to appeal a denied claim can be a time-consuming and seemingly impossible undertaking. With the right resources and experience in disputing denied property damage claims, a skilled attorney can help you seek a fair result.
