Dealing with Insurance Companies After a Hurricane: What You Need to Know

With Hurricane Ian causing a state of emergency in Florida, insurance companies are implementing various catastrophe procedures. As we work on your customer’s claim for hurricane damage, it’s important to keep in mind how to start dealing with insurance companies after a hurricane. Here are some key points to consider:

Remember that insurance companies are not your friends

When it comes to filing a claim for hurricane damage, insurance companies are not always looking out for their customers. In fact, adjusters may use various tactics to settle claims in the company’s favor, rather than the policyholder’s. At Your Virtual Adjuster, we work with roofing contractors nationwide to help their clients navigate the insurance claims process. From filing to negotiating and settling, we ensure fair and timely settlements for your customers. Plus, you’ll have a dedicated account manager who will keep you updated on the status of your customers’ claims.

At Your Virtual Adjuster, we have a team of experts who will work together to ensure a smooth and successful insurance claims process for you and your customers. Here are the professionals you can count on:

– Claim Intake Specialist: This specialist will carefully review all of your files to make sure we have all the necessary information to file the claim.

– Estimator: Our skilled estimator will create a comprehensive claims binder for your customer’s claim.

– Scheduler: This expert will handle all the scheduling and coordination of appointments between the insurance adjuster, your team, and the homeowner.

– Client Relationship Specialist: Our specialist will keep homeowners updated on the latest developments in their claim and ensure clear communication throughout the process.

– Claims Processor: This professional will communicate with both the roofer and homeowner to address any immediate needs that may arise.

– PA/Negotiator: With the help of our comprehensive claims binder, our experienced negotiator will work tirelessly to settle your customer’s claim for the best possible outcome.

– Payout Specialist: Our payout specialist will make sure you receive the funds you need to start the build as quickly as possible.

With our team of experts, you can rest assured that your customer’s insurance claim is in good hands.

Insurance companies don’t think to prioritize claims

When a hurricane hits, insurance companies are often inundated with a surge of claims. As a result, your customer’s claim may not receive the attention it deserves, even if the damage is severe. In some cases, they may be left waiting on hold for hours just to speak with someone.

At Your Virtual Adjuster, we understand the frustration that comes with navigating the insurance claims process after a hurricane. That’s why we’ll work tirelessly to ensure that your customer’s claim is prioritized and receives the attention it deserves. Our team will stay in constant communication with the insurance company and keep everyone informed of the claim’s status. No matter what type of property damage your customers are experiencing, you can trust us to handle the claim with care and expertise. Simply send the claim through our Mobile Claims app, and we’ll take care of the rest.

Insurance companies will ignore a lot of the damages

After a hurricane, insurance company adjusters may overlook some of the damages to a home. With a high volume of inspections to conduct, adjusters may rush through the process and miss critical areas of damage.

At Your Virtual Adjuster, we make sure that every damage is accounted for. With our app, your team can easily scope a property with just a few clicks. Simply send us pictures and measurements, and we’ll take care of the rest. Don’t let insurance companies ignore damages to your customers’ homes – partner with us to ensure a thorough and fair inspection process.

It’s common for insurance companies to want to underpay their customers

Insurance companies are notorious for offering low settlements to policyholders after a hurricane. They know that most customers are not experts in the fields of insurance and contracting, and they take advantage of this fact. At Your Virtual Adjuster, we use an app to gather all the necessary information to create a comprehensive claim binder. Our report includes a detailed estimate, picture report, aerials, local and state codes, manufacturer specifications, and xactimate definitions. With this extensive report, we can start your customer’s claim virtually without ever needing to be on-site at the loss. Don’t let insurance companies underpay your customers – partner with us to maximize their hurricane claims.

Each and every hurricane claim is different

It’s important to understand that no two hurricane damage claims are alike. Each claim requires careful attention to detail, as the extent of damages can vary significantly from one property to the next. Furthermore, every claim is handled by a different insurance adjuster, each with their own unique procedures and processes.
